Manchester City hit a stumbling block over Sinclair transfer


Manchester City’s proposed signing of Scott Sinclair has hit the rocks.

Roberto Mancini has identified the Great Britain star as the latest addition to his expensively assembled ranks at the Etihad Stadium, and was confident of securing a deal before Friday’s deadline. It had been suggested that City had agreed a fee with Swansea City for the former Chelsea youngster, believed to be in the region of £6.2million.

However, it now appears as though the Liberty Stadium club have pulled the plug on the deal, and are asking the champions to cough up more cash. But with Sinclair in the last 12 months of his contract with the Swans, Mancini’s club will not be held to ransom.

The 23-year-old forward is thought to be furious that his club have denied him a move to City, which would have seen him feature in the UEFA Champions League this season. And with the window set to shut in a matter of hours, he will be hoping the move can be resurrected.

Mancini had lined up Sinclair as a replacement for Adam Johnson, who last week sealed a £12million move to Sunderland.
