Roberto Mancini reportedly meets with Radamel Falcao's agent as Manchester City's pursuit of the striker increases.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini flew to Atletico Madrid this week in an attempt to steal a march on other clubs in the pursuit of Radamel Falcao, according to reports.

Falcao is a rumoured target for a number of top European clubs but the Spanish side's asking price is expected to be close to £42m.

The Daily Telegraph suggests that Mancini's meeting with the striker's agent, Jorge Mendes, may have put the Premier League champions in pole position for the 26-year-old's signature.

Falcao has scored 10 times in the league this season.
