Transfer talk

Cerci to snub Man City

August 22, 2011

Manchester City target Alessio Cerci wants to remain at Fiorentina next season.

Cerci has been strongly linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium in recent months.

He was keen to leave the Florence outfit earlier this summer, having fallen out with the club's fans last term.

"The negotiations with City exist,'' said Cerci to the club's official website. "But my wish is to remain here considering that I have made peace with the fans.''

Cerci joined Fiorentina from Roma last summer and signed a four-year contract with the Tuscan outfit.
