Mancini and Co are already planning new arrivals for the next campaign.
Manchester City may have to break the bank if they want to sign AS Roma forward Erik Lamela at the end of the season, says the Daily Express.
The hugely-talented Argentina international only arrived in the Italian capital from Buenos Aires-based giants River Plate two years ago, with the attacker enduring a tough debut campaign at the Stadio Olimpico last time out, scoring just four Serie A goals all season in 29 matches.
However, having finally got used to the Italian top flight this season, the 21-year-old has begun to truly flourish for the Romans, finding the back of the net on 15 occasions, as well as creating two other goals, in only 29 Serie A matches to date.
And it is that kind of eye-catching form in front of goal for Roma that has by all accounts attracted the attentions of City head coach Roberto Mancini, who is understood to be keen to bring the attacker to Eastlands this summer.
However, with a contract with Roma until 2016, City may have to splash out as much as £20 million in order to secure his services for next season.
