Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed there have been talks about next summer's transfer targets - but he does not expect Gareth Bale to leave Tottenham.

It has been suggested the Blues will try to lure Bale to the Etihad Stadium with a big-money bid. But Mancini does not think Spurs would be interested.

"Gareth Bale is a fantastic player," said the City boss. "But I don't think he will leave a big team like Tottenham."
