Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has dismissed speculation linking him with a move back to Italy.

The Blues boss has been linked with a move back home to take charge of Juventus, the team he has supported as a boy.

Regarding the growing rumours, Mancini said: "It is normal. Every two or three months every player can change squad, every manager can change squad."

Asked if would choose to stay at City, he responded: "Yes, yes. Absolutely."

In his first full season with City, Mancini is in sight of great success on two fronts.

They are on course for a place in the Champions League for the first time with a home match against struggling West Ham to come on Sunday.

Not only that, but City also face Stoke in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 14 with a chance to end a 35-year wait for a major trophy.
