Eastlands outfit look to snap up superstar trio!
MANCHESTER CITY are preparing to break the British transfer record with a sensational bid for Cesc Fabregas.
City’s move for the Arsenal midfielder was authorised by owner Sheikh Mansour during a meeting with key personnel this week.
Although their swoop for Fabregas is dependent on a top-four finish, they plan to start the bidding at £50m in an attempt to see off Barcelona.
City now have a “1-2-3 wishlist” of world class targets that is topped by Fabregas, followed by Ferdnando Torres and Barca striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. (News of the World)
Is there a real hope in hell that Roberto Mancini could net any of these three megastars? Well it seems unlikely but if they did indeed finish in the top four and had Champions League football to offer then of course big names could be attracted but names like these just seem to far fetched and sound far more like mindless paper talk than anything like reality.
Money is clearly not a problem but the three players linked with a move to the Eastlands in this report are just out of reach, not just of Man City, but of any side at the moment. All three have repeatedly stated their desire to stay at their clubs, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has only just arrived at the Nou Camp so one wonders why the hell he would consider a move from Barcelona.
Last summer Man City intelligently targeted players who were unhappy with their lot at their clubs and picked up some very good signings and I would imagine that they would look to pick up players in much the same way this coming summer and arguably the club are not a million miles from assembling a side who could acquit themselves well in Europe’s premier competition if they do indeed secure fourth spot.
