New Players Expected In January

New Players Expected In January

Manchester City fans can expected the club to sign the likes of Kaka, Messi, Ronaldo, Michael Essien, Gianlugi Buffon, Steven Gerrard, Andrei Arshavin, and the like, can't we?

New City owners, Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) and the person who set up the company, Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim has a wealth, more or less exceeding £23billion - so what can Blues fans expect come the January transfer window?

Kaka



Brazilian attacking midfielder currently playing for Italian giants, AC Milan. In today's market, the 26-year-old might be worth £35million.

Lionel Messi



Aged just a mere 21 and a winger with style. He currently applies his trade with Barcelona and would be a snip at £25million.

Gianluigi Buffon



Italian shot stopper (30) playing for Juventus. The six foot four inch goalie might be tempted away for the first time out of Italy with an offer of £80,000 a week.

Samuel Eto'o



Yet another Barcelona player well worth a look at. The 27-year-old striker has 72 Cameroon international caps, with more in the pipeline.

Manchester City, if interested would have to pay in the region of at least £40million for his services.

Andrei Arshavin



Tottenham tired and tried to sign the Zenit Saint Petersburg attacking midfielder / striker during the transfer window but failed, miserably. Should City put in a bid, nothing less than £25million would tempt the Russian club away from his native land.

Cristiano Ronaldo



If you believe everything you read, Manchester City will offer the Rags £134million for the 23-year-old Portuguese ace. Will he or won't he, that is the question?

I really dont think we need strengthening that much! Our attacking options are looking excellent already, we dont need any utd cast-offs. Richards is world class, as are Petrov, SWP, Elano, Jo, Robinho and arguable Kompany and potentially Johnson. I do find it hard to believe Michael Ball could sustain his place, but Joe Hart is also just fine in my books. I hope this group doesnt do away with the already great players we have here for the sake of the huge names

Oh dear, if Carlsberg made bad owners..........this guy hasn't a clue, Robinho was substituted 18 times last season alone. he's a troublemaker, lazy and ignorant. Mark Hughes has lost control of team selection and tactics already, Arabs are control freaks and will mess City up big time. I have worked for them, trust me.

Are you guys worried that you might end up like Real Madrid - buying the Galaxio players who care more about money than trying hard - managers changing every season and not winning trophies consistently? Don't get me wrong I wish you guys the best of luck and would love to see United lose out to City, but at what cost... your club's soul?
