Vieira poised for City move

07 Jan 2010 - 07:59:21

Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho has admitted that Manchester City target Patrick Vieira is highly likely to move to England this month.

Vieira, 33, has been strongly linked with a move to Eastlands where he would be reunited with former Inter boss Roberto Mancini.

Mancini is believed to be keen to acquire a player who understands his tactical systems and Vieira - who is out of favour at the Serie A champions - fits the bill.

The former Arsenal captain left the Premier League in 2005 after nine years in England.

However, following Inter's 1-0 Serie A win over Chievo on Wednesday, Mourinho revealed that the France midfielder was set to leave the Italian champions.

"I should give a special mention to Vieira, who certainly played his last game with us," said the former Chelsea boss.

"I don't know where he will go, maybe England which he likes a lot, but we should thank him for what he has done.

"The club decided not to renew his contract, which is coming to an end and to accept the offer of another club.

"I will miss him, but I don't have the right to demand anything from a player who has done so much for me.

"He had an impeccable game (against Chievo). It was the perfect farewell to us and I want to wish him all the best for his new career."
