Sparky Could Buy Anyone - Absolutely Anyone!

With the collapse of the Ronaldinho deal, Manchester City boss Mark Hughes still has a kitty in excess of over £50m in his transfer budget.



With £19m being spent on Brazilian striker Jo, Sparky can still rely on a huge reserve of money, ready and waiting should he wish.

If you were the manager of Manchester City, how would you spend £50m? Players only please!

A tad optimistic article, the Ronnie deal was more complicated than was first thought. The Money we were using to buy Ronnie was structured in a complex way, according to Mark Hughes, so dont expect buckets of money to spent this summer. He has a bit though, and hopefully the signings will start to materalise.

I think he just needs to look at them in matches before deciding, but the media seem to think wheels are rolling and that new faces may soon be wearing the light blue, proud moment for them.

yeah, but not anyone will come. goofy proved this fact. man city will have to improve in the league if they wish to attract the best players. pick more realistic targets, build the team to a minimum top six club, then maybe you can get a star who could really do some good things. no disrespect to anyone here, just an opinion.

It was only a matter of time before some bitter blackburn fans crawled out from under their rocks! Get over the fact that Hughes decided to leave your club for a bigger one! Hope you enjoy your relegation struggle when your few good players all leave!! RadioactiveD - sensible comments mate! Ideally we would be looking at top 6-8 this season and kicking on from there. There's no harm in thinking big though!!

oh, no harm at all. first you've got to get your manager sorted and i think you've alas found some stability. i thought the sven sacking was harsh but at least it turned out better in the end. i've been a chelsea fan and i can promise you i was disappointed to see Hughes go your way! so now that Hughes is there, see what miracles he can do with a squad admittedly better than Blackburn. a top six finish isn't unrealistic. ramos at spurs is clever in that he's buying young but promising players like modric and dos santos. it concerns me but it's a smart model to follow when you're a club that can't yet attract the very top players. if you go young, i'd suggest taking a long, hard look at the bundesliga. it's loaded with affordable talent.
RadioactiveD
I agee RD, Hughes has to be given time to build this team, but he needs that mixture of youth with experience, I do not think he has that much money to spend and needs to sign players where we are weak and under strength.
Buzz Lightyear
You can certainly take Ben Haim. No complaints from me!
