Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini has said the club have not made bids for Lazio defender Aleksandar Kolarov, and striker Mauro Zarate.

Reports have linked Kolarov with both City and Real Madrid, but Mancini made it clear he was not looking at Lazio's market for reinforcements at the back.

"At the moment there has not been anything. I am not aware of anything, but I am used to City being linked with every player who is on the transfer market," he told Radio Incontro.

Zarate has been tipped to leave the Aquile following a turbulent season in which he has trouble breaking into the first team. But again Mancini was discreet in relation to the hitman.

"He is an excellent player, even though he has been the victim of a poor season at Lazio. But, like Kolarov, there has not been any contact between both clubs."
