Mancini to be offered new Manchester City contract
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini will be offered a new contract in the summer after guiding the club to within one match of the Premier League title, the Daily Mail has reported. The Mail puts the value of Mancini’s new four-year deal at £22m, enough to make the Italian the highest-paid manager in the top flight.
City go into the final game of the league season level on points with champions and local rivals Manchester United but crucially hold the advantage on goal difference. With City at home to relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers and United away at Sunderland, the Blues are favourites to land a first title since 1968.
QPR have not won away from home since a 3-2 win at Stoke City in mid-November. City meanwhile are unbeaten at the Etihad Stadium this season and have dropped only two points, a 3-3 draw with Sunderland in late March costing City their perfect home record.
