Manchester City have dismissed widespread reports that they are weighing up a bid for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez in January.

A senior figure at the club has informed the Manchester Evening News that there is no truth in claims City boss Roberto Mancini is eager to add the Uruguayan to his squad.

A report in the Daily Express, since picked up by most of England's other national newspapers, claimed Mancini wanted the 25-year-old despite already having Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli on his books.

Mancini is under pressure following a poor Champions League campaign that looks destined to end in failure to qualify for the knockout stages for the second successive season.

Suarez, who has scored eight Premier League goals for Liverpool this season, is contracted to the Reds until 2018.
