Man City expect just one more transfer spend

Manchester City are poised to spend just once more this summer to bring in expected arrival Eliaquim Mangala, according to the Express.

The club have already sealed deals for ‘keeper Willy Caballero and midfielder Fernando, while Bacary Sanga joined on a free transfer, and are anticipating the rumoured £32m signing of defender Mangala to signal the end of Pellegrini’s transfer outlay.

And City’s chief executive Ferran Soriano has reiterated the position of the club, believing they had sealed their primary targets.

Soriano said: “We knew the positions we wanted to reinforce in the team.

“We have a new right back, a new holding midfielder and we will have a new central defender and that’s it.

“We don’t need to sign new players for the sake of it.”

The club has seen a large amount of players leave, albeit most of them youngsters on loan, but notably first team squad members Gareth Barry, Jolean Lescott and Costel Pantilimon all on frees as they look to freshen up their squad ahead of a title defence this season.

Financial Fair Play rules mean City will not be able to spend huge amounts as they have done in previous years – the club has been on a £1 billion spending spree since the takeover of Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan.

They also have to contend with the £50m fine they received for breaching these rules and exceeding the loss limit of £37.2m between 2011 and 2013.
