At Least 18 New City Players In January

At Least 18 New City Players In January

Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim, head of the Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) wants to bring in no fewer than 18 new Manchester City players in January.

Blues boss, Mark Hughes has apparently been told he can offer £80m each for AC Milan's Brazilian playmaker Kaka and Barcelona's Argentinean attacking midfielder, Lionel Messi.

Also on the list are Liverpool's Spanish ace Fernando Torres - expected to cost £70m - and fellow compatriot Cesc Fabregas. The Arsenal midfielder would set City back in the region of £60m.

Dr Al Fahim also reiterated one of his main objectives, and that is to publicise the United Arab Emirates, especially Abu Dhabi.



'Our main objective is to publicise Abu Dhabi as a capital for sports, education and culture in the Middle East, in addition to giving the UAE people and residents the opportunity to train and interact with players from Manchester,' he told the worlds media.

Youuve won the lottery lads, enjoy it. Just remember where you came from and be humble about it unlike Chelsea who were always a massive club apparentley.

I hope this statement sees some distance from the owners. Our current young squad have been working hard and are really coming together as a team.

All I can say is this will be another nail in the coffin of the English Game. Truthfully I would like the Prem to float off and separate from the rest of the league ladder now. Enjoy it you Blues and as Hudds Yiddo says above. Please remember your roots and what the club was.... yes, you are now truely MASSIVE.

I'd be quite happy to see the squad build up slowly over several seasons instead of being shoved together over one January. Let's get ourselves a good left-back and maybe let Schmeichel go (since he doesn't seem to want to stay as second GK) to be replaced by a more experienced face lest Joe Hart be injured or need a break, for this season. Then we can worry about which positions are underperforming comparatively in a year's time, and bring in some higher-calibre faces when we have a year's reputation with Abu Dhabi behind us to go on.

Us City fans have been thru so much in the past three decades, greyhound, that no matter what happens from this day forward, we'll never forget where we have come from. It's truly satisfying though that we have the Rags rattled as hell!

LOL.U know there is always a distance between dreaming and reality.Money is always the opprtunity of success not the gurantee of success.AC Milan's Brazilian playmaker Kaka and Barcelona's Argentinean attacking midfielder, Lionel Messi.Fernando Torres - expected to cost £70m - and fellow compatriot Cesc Fabregas. The Arsenal midfielder would set City back in the region of £60m.LOL HONESTLY DO U THINK THEY WILL JOIN U ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY???LOL JUST DREAM ON.Neither their clubs need money nor the players will play in UEFA cup.I think u all with ur owner r running too much after capturing ROBINHO.He onle came bcoz he was in trouble & he has no other option.None of the players u mentioned desire their wish to leave & as i said no one will fancy playing in UEFA CUP.Better get some tropphies & make some Base before dreaming.U still r 3-4 yeras away for being an attractive project.And how ur owner think only he can bid??He actually doesn;t know anything.The fact CHELSEA didn't p[ay 4 million doesn't mean they can't compete with u.Its laughable.If u bid 150 they can bid 200 real is also there.No matter how rich ur owner is transfers r in millions figure which obviously make Chelsea,Real even Manchester ,Inter ,Bayern all compitable.ENJOYYYYYYYYY THE NEW TAGS: SUGAR DADDY,SUGAR MONEY,DESTROIER OF FOOTBALL,DUBAI CLUB BLA BLA BLA
