Every transfer window since Manchester City have had major money, it is hijacked by their expressive spending. I was expecting more of the same, but as it was quiet throughout, and with Balotelli leaving, I personally expected a late ‘Robinho-esque’ move.
Manchester City didn’t make a move. Despite being seven points behind local rivals Manchester United.
Does this show that Roberto Mancini has faith in his squad’s ability?
Or does it show that Mancini is being told to curb the spending?
If so, perhaps Roberto may be allowed to worry for his own future come the summer.
Champions League – Failed to pass group-stage.
League – Currently seven points clear of regaining their title.
