City prepared to spend £150m on these four players.
Chelsea rumours: Blues to splash out £61.5m to sign Premier League trio, including Liverpool target
Midfielder transfers: 7 partnerships we’d love to see next season, with Coquelin/Vidal at Arsenal & more
Manchester City are lining up a stunning summer spending spree to bring in as many as four players to improve their squad for next season, according to latest reports in the Daily Mirror.
The Premier League runners-up are no doubt desperate to win the title back off Chelsea in 2015/16, and have identified four main areas that need improving for next term, with the Mirror article listing some truly big names in Manuel Pellegrini’s sights.
The £150m quartet consists of:
1) Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)
Having reportedly failed with a £30m bid for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, City are now being tipped by the Mirror to try again for the 20-year-old England winger and table an improved £40m offer, even if the Reds are described as holding out for a whopping £50m for their star youngster. Although expensive, Sterling has shown what a top talent he can be since his breakthrough in 2013/14, and with his ability to play as a striker, it may be that Pellegrini would see him as an upgrade on underperforming players like Edin Dzeko, Wilfried Bony and Stevan Jovetic.
