Manchester City are set to rival Manchester United in the race to sign Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Slovakia international was thought to be a transfer target for United in the summer and were looking to bring the midfielder to Old Trafford as a potential replacement for veteran midfielder Paul Scholes.

However, Mancini revealed that during his reign at Inter Milan he was beaten  to the signing the 22 year-old by Napoli and doesn’t want to make the same mistake twice.

Mancini said: “When I coached Inter, I asked for Hamsik. I really wanted him, but Napoli were quicker than us.

"I am not at all surprised that the major European clubs are interested in him. He is a real talent.”

Hamsik has made over 80 appearances for Napoli so far, scoring an impressive 26 goals from central midfield.
