Russian side Zenit St Petersburg reportedly want Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to take over from Luciano Spalletti as their coach.

Roberto Mancini is reportedly a target for Zenit St Petersburg.

The Manchester City manager's future has been the subject of speculation in recent months and the Russian side are planning a swoop to make the Italian their new coach, according to the Daily Mail.

Despite spending over £60m last summer on players such as Hulk and Axel Witsel, Zenit are currently third in their domestic league and club officials want to replace current boss Luciano Spalletti, after a series of disappointing results.

Mancini signed a new five-year deal with City last summer.
