Big-spending City have been linked with a £40 million move for the Tottenham man, possibly with Emmanuel Adebayor going the other way as part of the deal.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed there have been talks about next summer’s transfer targets – and has dropped a heavy hint that he is keen on Gareth Bale.

MirrorFootball revealed last night that Manchester City were plotting a summer move for the Tottenham star – perhaps with Emmanuel Adebayor going the other way as part of the deal.

Mancini has now admitted he thinks the 22-year-old is a “fantastic” player, but is staying coy on whether he will be able to sign him.

“Gareth Bale is a fantastic player,” said the City boss.

“But I don’t think he will leave a big team like Tottenham.”

However, Mancini has spoken to the City hierarchy about summer plans, even if, with the Premier League title battle now into its last two games, those talks are on hold.

“We talked about this some weeks ago,” he said.

“But now our focus has to be on the next two games.”
