Blimey, Eastlands supporters should be ready for a whole new look side!
Hughes will follow up the £12m arrival of Wayne Bridge from Chelsea by drafting in up to half-a-dozen new faces before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Roque Santa Cruz, Craig Bellamy, Shay Given, Scott Parker and Matthew Upson are all targets on a £50m shopping list. (Daily Star)
Arsene Wenger, is in the market for reinforcements at the back, with Kolo Toure tipped to complete an €8.5 million move to Manchester City. (Irish Times)
Mark Hughes has come under increasing pressure after the clubs embarrassing defeat at home to Nottingham Forest but apparently he still has the full support of his board (kiss of death perhaps) and if the mega rich Sheikhs do in fact believe Spark y is a part of the club’s future then a sure fire way to know if they are really keen on the former Blackburn boss is by seeing just how much money they give him this month. All the signings in this report are top quality ones, but some clearly look more mouthwatering than others. I think Roque will move to Eastlands and If they get Kolo and Shay then that would be one hell of a trio to snare and would go a long way to improving some areas of the Manchester City squad. Who do City fans want the most out of these half dozen internationals?
