Manchester City ready €40m-plus-player offer for Uruguayan striker

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is reportedly closing in on a €40m (£33.8m) deal plus Edin Dzeko for Uruguayan hitman Edinson Cavani.

The Daily Express claims the Napoli forward is high on Mancini's summer transfer wish-list, as the Italian looks to assemble a squad that can reclaim the Premier League title from arch-rivals Manchester United next term.

The Citizens are reportedly unwilling to stump up the £50million that would activate the striker’s release clause, and have offered Bosnian centre-forward Dzeko as part of the deal. 

Dzeko has played a bit part role once again at the Etihad Stadium this season, having fallen down the pecking order behind Argentinian teammates Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez.

Cavani, meanwhile, has chipped in with 26 goals in 30 games in Serie 'A' this campaign, and would bring some much needed firepower to a City frontline that has been critically inconsistent all season in the English top flight.
