Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 1 -

FOR­MER Manch­ester City striker and son of City boss Roberto Mancini, An­drea Mancini, has signed for Span­ish third division side Val­ladolid B.

The 19-year-old was re­leased by the English cham­pi­ons at the end of last sea­son af­ter loan spells at Old­ham and Ital­ian side Fano.

His one year deal means that Mancini is el­i­gi­ble to play in La Liga if needed, and he is des­per­ate to play in the Span­ish top flight.

He said: “It is some­thing very im­por­tant for me. I have to win my chance in the youth team to play in the Primera with Val­ladolid, but if I work hard I don’t see any rea­son why it can’t hap­pen.”
