Another target bites the dust as Man City snap up Fernandinho

In a stark contrast to last summer, Manchester City are stepping up their efforts to get their business done in good time before the new campaign gets underway.

The Premier League runners-up announced the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk on Thursday, and the club are close to confirming the arrival of Jesus Navas from Sevilla.

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, Malaga's Isco and Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara remain City's summer targets, while the club are still to confirm the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager.

Sacked! City board do the Poznan as Mancini leaves

Exactly a year after leading Manchester City to their first ever Premier League title, manager Roberto Mancini has been sacked.
The announcement came as a surprise to exactly no-one, as defeat in the FA Cup final against Wigan capped off a disappointing season for the Italian and his side.
An early Champions League exit, followed by a dismal defence of their Premier League crown, saw the City board run out of patience with the Italian.
Manuel Pellegrini is the favourite to replace Mancini in the hotseat and will be hoping to get the the club's fans doing the Poznan again by returning City to winning ways.
