Sparky Awarded Pot Of Gold

Sparky Awarded Pot Of Gold

Club owner Thaksin Shinawatra has told Blues boss Mark Hughes he can spend in excess of £30million on new players.

Hughes, should he begin the 'big spend' is keen on bringing in a couple of highly rated players from his previous club Blackburn Rovers, notably David Bentley and Christopher Samba, however bigger fish in the huge pond known to be available are CSKA Moscow's 21-year-old Brazil striker Jo and Barcelona's Ronaldinho.

The latest reports suggest Jo is on the verge of signing for an estimated £12m while fellow Brazilian Ronaldinho is still pondering his options.

Even more money would be made available depending on the sale of at least half-a-dozen players on their way out of Eastlands, making the total estimated 'pot of gold' available in the region of £60m.

So you have £30 million. £12 million of that on Jo, £4 million on Christopher Samba (alledgely), quite a bit on Ronaldino, £10+ million on Bentley. Not a massive rebuild of your squad then...?

its not alot of money to be spemding on players especially the price of signing good players now. Hughes is going to have to use his skills with this money cos he was good without mioney at blackburn lets see what he can do with money hopefully something good

i thought he said we can spend 100-200mill in the next two years. 30mill isnt a lot to spend on new players.

30 million, 60 million, 100 million, 200 million...Where does everybody get these figures from. My understanding is that he will spend whatever it takes to make the Club a global force.

Don't like the idea of changing the club badge, is that rumour true? Arshavin, was he linked with City, I watched that game last night and I know it is only one game, but he looked good. The Jo deal sounds dodgy, glad Goofy dosen't want to come to city. Anything new regarding dunney?
