Serie A - Cerci turns down City chance
Cerci emerged as an unexpected target for City earlier in the summer when Roberto Mancini expressed his admiration for the midfielder, 24.
Fiorentina recently claimed they received an offer from City for the player, but Cerci has no intention of moving to Etihad Stadium.
Last season he fell out with Viola fans but has now repaired the relationship.
"The negotiations with City exist," said Cerci to Fiorentinanews.it. "But my wish is to remain here considering that I have made peace with the fans."
