MANCINI TO PINCH BUT
ROBERTO MANCINI is set for a summer transfer tussle with Manchester United for Birmingham keeper Jack Butland.
Man City boss Mancini will rival Sir Alex Ferguson in the £3m chase to sign the highly-rated England Under-21 star.
Cash-strapped Blues are expecting serious interest in the summer and are prepared to sell Butland if they receive a suitable offer.
And Mancini is ready to step up his bid to bring in competition for England No.1 Joe Hart.
