How to revitalise this stuttering City side, including huge midfield investment.
With Manchester City drawing at home to Hull City this weekend, it looks more than likely that Manuel Pellegirni’s side’s Premier League title challenge is over for the season, with Chelsea moving seven points clear and looking by far the better team at the moment.
It is a poor defence of their title, with City rarely getting into gear this season, and it clearly looks as though a new generation of talent is needed at the Etihad Stadium – and that means a new wave of big-money signings.
With changes needed in defence, midfield and attack, here’s our pick of five big names City must try to bring in this summer, aided of course by the sales of some of the current squad:
