Manchester City are reportedly lining up a swoop for Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is reportedly a target for Manchester City.

Speculation surrounding City's current boss Roberto Mancini has been rife after they fell 12 points behind leaders Manchester United in the Premier League.

Should City's owners decide to remove Mancini from his post, then they will approach Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins over Laudrup's availability, according to Goal.com.

It is believed that the Dane also has a good relationship with City's director of football Txiki Begiristain, after they played together for Barcelona.

Laudrup, whose side face Liverpool at Anfield today, has led the Welsh outfit to the Capital One Cup final this season.

They play Bradford City at Wembley next Sunday.
