Recently, Manchester City has turned into a hot topic amongst the media with the upcoming Financial Fair Play regulations that will put the champions' spending spree on hold. 

And rumours about possible new transfers in and out of the club quickly catch the supporters' attention.

According to reports, one of these possible summer transfers will be none other than the man who scored three goals against the Citizens in the previous Champions League campaign - Edinson Cavani. 

The Uruguayan striker is currently top of the goalscoring charts in Serie A, with 18 strikes in 22 league games this season.

City are not the only team to have registered an interest in the 26-year-old striker, with Real Madrid and Chelsea considering bids for Cavani.

The release clause in Cavani's contract is rumoured to be around the £52m mark, and although it may seem a little pricey, City have shown in the past that they're not afraid to spend big to get their prime transfer targets. 

However, with the introduction of the FFP regulations by UEFA, the English club may need to offload a few players in order to complete the deal.

Amongst the potential candidates are current top goalscorer Edin Dzeko, as well as Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry, and Kolo Toure.

City are currently 12 points behind Manchester rivals United in the race for the Premier League title, and after such a disappointing campaign, Mancini is looking to overhaul his squad as he looks to inject some fresh impetus into his ranks.

Cavani could be the man to lead the new era at City, but only time will tell.
