Since Sheikh Mansour bought Manchester City back in 2009, his extreme wealth has enabled the club to sign some of the world’s best players.
However, over the past six years, the Blues have established themselves as one of the superpowers in world football and are now recognised across the globe, not just as a football club, but as a brand and as a force to be reckoned with.
With the allure of Champions League football and competing on multiple fronts, as well as the potentially high wages that are associated with it, it is inevitable that City will be linked to the best of the best in terms of players.
As with most clubs, rumours are often bounded around months before the transfer window is even officially open. Now into December, the rumours are being published even thicker and faster.
So in this article, we will be selecting FIVE players who City would benefit from having in their squad and justifying my decisions.
Of course, every club in the world would love to have Lionel Messi amongst their squad – and even though the Argentine has been linked with an Etihad switch on multiple occasions over the past couple of years, we will be discussing more realistic transfer targets.
