The Italian tactician admits that he is looking to build as the club aim to challenge in the Champions League next season but he will not be rushing his summer transfer plans
The Italian is expected to add to his squad this summer as he looks to turn City into a force capable of dominating on both domestic and European fronts.
A number of high-profile European stars have already been linked with moves to the blue half of Manchester but Mancini maintains that he is in no rush.
When quizzed by Mediaset on potential targets, he replied: "There is time in the market.
"We must strengthen the squad, but we will not hurry."
Lille star Eden Hazard is among those under speculation regarding a move to the Etihad Stadium, though the Belgium international has yet to make up his mind on a destination.
