Mancini is adamant that Lescott is not for sale: "We can't sell players," Mancini told reporters when asked about the former Everton man's future. "We won't have enough to play if we sell."
Lescott has been linked with a return to Goodison Park having made only seven league starts this season. That tally is in stark contrast to City's last campaign, when he established himself at the heart of back four by making 33 appearances in the top flight.

David 'Mother Hubbard' Moyes is a master at making silk purses out of sows ears.
In my opinion he has performed wonders on an absolute shoe string !
He must be so frustrated that after so long he has the makings of a first class first eleven but the inevitable suspensions and injuries are biting into his team.
Unfortunately we do not have good enough youngsters to keep the kettle boiling so to speak.
Our scouts have not unearthed any of note and we are padding the squad with cast offs and freebees.
Obviously Barkley and Oviedo are not considered ready to make their mark although Vellios could develop into a decent striker/target man.
Hitz, Naismith and Heitinga are not good enough and really don't add anything to really excite the fans in the way that Fellaini and Mirallas do.
Its a shame about Drenthe's temperament because the lad was certainly exciting.
Really no one on the bench looked to be a match turner compared to the talent Chelsea had on show.

With respect to Lescott... Mancini implied previously that he may spend... and I expect Lescott leaving will be reliant on a replacement coming in, or Ivory Coast heading out of the African Cup of Nations early. But I think there is a good chance Lescott will end this window with a different club.
