Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has poured cold water on speculation linking him with a move to French side Monaco according to talkSport.

Reports in recent days have suggested that the Ligue 2 leaders were set to tempt the Italian boss with the promise of a summer transfer kitty of £170 million.

The French club are currently owned by Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev, who is keen to invest vast sums into the club and re-establish them amongst the European elite.

With the side certain to be playing their football in the French top flight next season, Rybolovlev is keen to bring in a high profile manager who can help the club compete with the Qatari backed PSG.

Mancini is known to have become disillusioned this season at the Etihad. The Italian boss led City to their first ever Premier League title last season but has become frustrated after his team surrendered a 15 point lead to city rivals Manchester United.

Mancini is keen to revitalise the City squad believing a number of his players to have become complacent following their success last year.

Regardless of whether Mancini chooses to join the club, current boss Claudio Ranieri’s days look set to come to an end with reports suggesting Rybolovlev will turn to Laurent Blanc should Mancini reject the offer.
