David Pizarro could make a permanent switch from Roma to Manchester City, after the Italian club left the door open to a summer move.

The 32-year-old moved to the Etihad Stadium in January in order to bolster Roberto Mancini's threadbare midfield, but is scheduled to go back to Rome at the end of the season.

Pizarro has, though, impressed during his short stint in Manchester, and registered his first goal as well as an assist in City's 4-0 demolition of Porto in the Europa League on Wednesday evening.

Mancini has yet to give an indication that he would like to keep the Chilean beyond the terms of his current deal, but Roma are certainly open to the idea.

According to Roma general manager Franco Baldini, the Serie A outfit will allow Pizarro to stay with City should a proposed deal suit all parties involved.

"We are happy with the start he has made at Manchester City," Baldini told Chilean newspaper La Tercera. "But it is still too early to talk about his future.

"We have good relations with Manchester City and if they want him, Pizarro will decide whether to stay there.

"But we have not agreed about the price for a permanent deal."

Pizarro could be in line for his third appearance for the Premier League leaders on Saturday as City meet relegation threatened Blackburn at the Etihad Stadium.
