City chasing Pizarro – Report

The veteran midfielder has had few first-team chances for Roma

since the autumn, and there were reports of a training-ground row

with coach Luis Enrique earlier this month.

City boss Roberto Mancini managed the Chile international during

his time at Inter, and the pair could be reunited at Eastlands.

Mancini has consistently said he expects no major arrivals this

month, but the 32-year-old’s arrival would give him midfield cover

with Yaya Toure still on Africa Cup of Nations duty.
