Roberto Mancini Will Get No Cash To Spend In January

Carlos TevezRoberto Mancini has been told the Manchester City cheque book is not going to open in January.

The Blues boss was hoping the arrival of Txiki Begiristain as sporting director would herald a massive cash splash.

Brazilian wonderkid Neymar was just one of the brilliant talents he expected to be targeted in a big push.

But club insiders have told Football Stories there are NO plans to continue the club's elaborate spending spree of recent seasons.

The only money available for Mancini will come from cash he generates by selling fringe players.

And the likes of Kolo Toure, Wayne Bridge and Roque Santa Cruz are not expected to bring a decent transfer war chest.

The news is a blow to Mancini, but at least he will be comforted by the confirmation the club's Champions League debacle is not going to cost him his job.

City could easily finish bottom of group D following the midweek draw with Ajax - despite the expensively assembled squad at Mancini's disposal.

But sources at the Etihad insist Mancini is safe even though his team flopped in Europe.
