Manchester City have made Roberto Mancini the best paid manager in the Premier League.

Manchester City have made Roberto Mancini the best paid manager in the Premier League.

The Sun says his new £37.5million contract makes him British football’s highest-paid boss.

The Manchester City chief ended speculation about his future last night, despite a £6.5m-a-year approach from the Russian FA.

He said: “I’m very much looking forward to the challenges and excitement ahead. The opportunity that exists to build on our recent success is huge.”

His mega £7.5m-a-year deal, which ties him to City until 2017, takes him way above Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in the pay league.

Fergie earns around £4m a year at Old Trafford.
