Manchester City is trying to copy Chelsea’s model, who managed to dominate Premier League after only two years from club takeover by Abramovic. And the first move was Robinho, which they manage to steal from Real Madrid in front of Chelsea. The board promised at that time that it was only the beginning and the real transfers will be done this year.

There shortlist includes players from the best clubs in Europe but until now only Wayne Bridge from Chelsea was signed. The transfer amount has not been made public but it was probably around € 20 million.

There are also reports that there were offers, all rejected, for Buffon and Trezeguet from Juventus, Yaya Toure from Barcelona, Santa Cruz from Blackburn and lately for Zarate from Lazio.

Probably players like Buffon, Trezeguet or Toure, which are playing every year in Champions League, are difficult targets but for the rest the temptation is big.

But every man has a price, and there are players that would choose more money to the detriment of glory like it was the case for Robinho.

It remains to be seen which will be the next targets for Manchester City. The transfer window is just at the beginning and they have all the time to strengthen their team.
