Nicolas Tagliafico watched by Man City

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has been tracking Argentina international left back Nicolas Tagliafico. The Banfield starlet has been in impressive form this year, and City club scouts have sent glowing reports back to England.

In Argentina, Tagliafico has already been compared to the great Javier Zanetti, such has been the quality of some of his defensive displays.

Comfortable playing in left midfield or at left back, the 20 year old has already represented Argentina's under-20 team.

Argentinian club Banfield will command a fee of around $6.9 million for his signature.
