Pizza .. Now Mancini's Gone Gago For McDonald's!

Pizza .. Now Mancini's Gone Gago For McDonald's!

His initial plans to go for Flamini and Gago of Real Madrid and AC Milan respectively have drawn a blank and it now seems that he'll be ordering a McDonald instead.

According to the Daily Mail's well respected 'Sports Mail Reporter'. The next on the list is Parma midfielder McDonald Mariga a Kenyan international (yes Kenyan).

One things for sure, and thats his stamina shouldn't be in any doubt if he has any of the sporting genes that his international track team mates possess.

A host of clubs including Inter Milan have also been tracking Mariga, with the Italian club recently putting heir interest on hold after the loan arrival of the exciting Chilean Manuel Fernandes from Valencia (yes him from Football Manager).

Ol' Arry Redknapp also tried to sign the six foot two inch Mariga for old club Portsmouth when he was playing for Swedish side Helsingborg three years ago, but failed to secure a work permit.

Apparently City are ready to offer cash and Valeri Bojinov for Mariga, according to reports in Italy in a deal that could be worth around six million pounds.

Of all the City stars on loan around the world at the moment the Bulgaria striker Bojinov is probably the one Blues' fans have the most time for.

After an injury plagued few seasons for City the striker was loaned out to Parma and has scored four goals in fifteen appearances.

The most telling factor could be that he is keen to stay in Italy n what has become his adopted homeland after two different spells there.

Mariga has a record of nine goals in around a hundred appearances at club level and although not a goal scorer could be a future Yaya Toure in the making.

City do need a bit of height in the centre and it looks like this kid might fit the bill and in turn get to learn from a master in Patrick Viera along the way.

This kid is a great player. Big, strong, quick, can play with a lethal shot on him. I think hes 20. He would be a miles better buy than gago.
