You could write a book solely with players names linked with a move to cash-rich Eastlands. It wouldn’t be a very interesting book as it wouldn’t make much sense and it would all be just names, but you get the idea. Anyway, this triple swoop reported by the ever-reliable source below would go down a treat for sure!
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes claims he wants to sign old heads rather than superstars when the transfer window reopens in January. Roque Santa Cruz, Torsten Frings and Wayne Bridge are high on his list. (Daily Star)
Mark Hughes is a wily customer and, if he has lined up these three internationals, then he is very wise indeed, opting for a mixture of the spectacular and solid. Roque is of course a tremendous striker who has revelled in the Premier League since arriving last summer, he seems set to make the move from Ewood Park and could be snared for around £20m, whilst the signings of squad player Bridge and German veteran Frings would be decidedly cheaper but not less useful.
Just how far can the millions (or should that be billions?) take Manchester City? Well, it’s very possible that with the right management and some intelligent signings that the club could be sitting in the top four in a season or two. How far do the fans think their club can go under their new owners?
