Manchester City And Mancini Struggling To Attract Big Name Signings!

manchester-city

All Manchester City fans were expecting a busy summer at Eastlands and while they have brought in £75 million pounds worth of talent, the players that have arrived will not spark fear into Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

City have added David Silva, Yaya Toure, Jerome Boateng and most recently left back Aleksander Kolarov to their already impressive squad but it is not the statement of intent many including myself were expecting. City may have more money than any of their rivals but the fact remains that until they qualify for the Champions League or mount a serious title push players will still prefer to move to other clubs around Europe. The players City have brought will ultimately add depth to their squad but for the money spent if I was Manchester City fan I wouldn’t be able to feel anything other than slightly short changed .

When Roman Abramovich first came to Chelsea and they begun their spending spree the players they brought in were of the highest level which ultimately aided them in their two Premier League title successes. Manchester City are still a long way of achieving anything like what Chelsea did and until they make two or three world class signings that is how it will remain. Manchester United and Chelsea who have both been reasonably quiet in the transfer market this summer will still go into the season  as title favourites and Mancini and his coaching staff will have a hard task on the training ground to try and stop this from being a reality come the end of the season. How do you think Manchester City will fair this season?
