London, Jan 7 (ANI); Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour has given the green light to new manager Roberto Mancini to splash another 100 million pound in the January transfer window.

There seems no end to City's spending powers, even though Sheikh Mansour has already devoted 305 million pound to wiping out the club's debts. But he is willing to make another 100 million pound available in a bid to push City into the Champions League.

And there will be plenty more in the summer if the top-four place materialises.

Arsenal legend Vieira will be first through the door and 18 million pound worth Palermo centre-half Simon Kjaer could be next.

Former Inter coach Mancini knows Viera well and has offered him a 140,000 pound-a-week deal to join City on loan for the rest of the season.

Vieira, 33, is due in Manchester today after saying farewell to his Inter team-mates last night.

He is eager to re-launch his career ahead of the World Cup this summer after failing to hold down a regular place in Jose Mourinho's team this season. (ANI)
