Manchester City have admitted they want to sign Napoli stars Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
But the revelation by first-team coach Fausto Salsano will infuriate the Serie A club who are in the same Champions League group as City.
Roberto Mancini has said he tried to sign Hamsik and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani during his time at Inter Milan.
But now his right-hand man Salsano has said the interest remains strong for the Slovak midfielder and Argentine striker Lavezzi – two of the brightest stars in European football.
“Manchester City are watching Napoli very carefully,” Salsano told a Naples radio station. “I can confirm Mancini’s interest in Hamsik because I have been to watch the Slovak.
“Marek has become a very important player with the right experience. Lavezzi, on the other hand, is a devastating player who can hurt you one-on-one. Hamsik and Lavezzi are players we like because our aim is to do great things.”
