In an expected move, The New York signed 24 year old Italian midfielder Andrea Mancini. Mancini is the son of former Inter and Manchester City midfielder Roberto Mancini and has been seen spotted training with the team throughout the last couple of weeks. In addition to playing for the academies of Inter and Man City, he has also played for DC United in the United States. In the club’s press release manager Gio Savarese had this to say:
Mancini has the potential to be a class signing for the Cosmos. Just like Cellerino last season, he could be a late signing that helps to push the Cosmos over the line for the championship. Let’s hope he can live up to his father’s name and reputation.
