Manchester City keeping tabs on Giovinco, reveals agent

The 25-year-old attacker is expected to rejoin Juve this summer, but the Premier League champions have become the latest club to make an enquiry about the Italy international
Manchester City have expressed an interest in signing Sebastian Giovinco, according to one of the Parma player's representatives.

The Italy international is widely expected to leave the Ennio Tardini this summer, after a terrific Serie A campaign in which he scored a career-high 15 goals.

Giovinco has been heavily linked with a return to Juventus, while Barcelona, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be keen on the attacker, but Claudio Pasqualin has now revealed that the Premier League champions have entered the fray.

“Juve and Parma will have to resolve his co-ownership arrangement, but it’s no secret that Barcelona have sent scouts to watch him play," the agent told Sky Sport Italia.

“Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid? It's one thing to be interested in a player, it’s another to start talks.

“Nevertheless, they are not the only two sides to have requested information; Manchester City have as well.”

Giovinco has already spoken of his willingness to return to Turin but Pasqualin has admitted that neither he nor his fellow agent Andrea D'Amico have held talks with the Bianconeri.

“I still haven’t spoken to [Juventus coach Antonio] Conte and neither has D’Amico,” Pasqualin added. “Once we have then we’ll be able to give you an answer on that possibility.”

Giovinco is currently sidelined with a minor knee injury but is expected to be included in Italy's final squad for Euro 2012. will be running a dedicated LIVE! on Saturday from 11.00-00.00BST to keep you up to date with all the latest about the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea, while also offering you the chance to ask our European football editors any questions you have about the game via International's Twitter account, or our Facebook page.
