City hit block on signing Bresciano

Manchester City's hopes of landing Australian midfielder Mark Bresciano appear to be at an impasse. Sven Goran Eriksson is keen to bring Bresciano to Eastlands to add a bit of bite to the City engine room. The basis of an agreement has been reached with Bresciano's current club, Serie A outfit Palermo and the 27-year-old has been in Manchester during the early part of this week. However, despite Eriksson claiming in the aftermath of Saturday's friendly defeat to Valencia that he expected to have a new signing on the training ground on Monday, the deal is yet to be completed. The issue appears to revolve around City's desire to stagger the payments, while Palermo want the cash up front, in one lump sum. Palermo director of football Rino Foschi is pessimistic about the chances of Bresciano completing his 'dream' move to England, claiming: 'The more time goes on, the more convinced I am nothing will come of it. 'City are not respecting the initial terms of our agreement.' Yet Eriksson is hopeful the transfer can be completed in time for Bresciano to play some part in the opening game at West Ham on Saturday. 'Mark has a bit of everything,' Eriksson told the Manchester Evening News. 'He has aggression in his game and he scores goals too. He can play right or left, or even behind the strikers. He is also very experienced. 'I am hoping the deal will be finalised because all teams need that extra bit of bite about them.'
