Man City falter in Bresciano bid

Manchester City's bid to sign Mark Bresciano from Palermo has ground to a halt over the way the Premier League club wants to pay the 5m transfer fee.

Palermo have requested an up-front payment for the 27-year-old Bresciano, while City chief executive Alistair Mackintosh wants to split the payments.

"I think the problem is to do with the dates of payment," said City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

"Hopefully he'll be back soon because we know he's a very good player."

The Australia midfielder spent most of the week at City's Carrington training ground.

Since taking over as City boss, Eriksson has invested 40m on eight players.
