Manchester City are to be handed a sizeable transfer war chest this summer, and a large portion of it will be going on just two players, if reports in Saturday’s edition of The Sun are anything to go by.
Manchester City News and Goals
With Manuel Pellegrini safe in the job for now, he will set about fixing his midfield by laying out a stunning £100m on Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling and Juventus star Paul Pogba.
The red top’s back page claims that £60m has been set aside for France international, Pogba, while a further £40m is earmarked for the wanataway England international.
City have already had one £30m bid for Sterling knocked back this week, but reports are now suggesting that they are ready to return with an improved offer in order to turn the screw on Liverpool and force them to sell.
A £60m fee for Pogba, should it be successful, would surpass the fee Manchester United paid for Angel Di Maria last summer, to turn him into the UK’s most expensive footballer.
