Manchester City fans have massive smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the latest gossip coming from the Sun, who seem to think their manager will have a blank cheque this summer.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger combo at the bar, this is a far cry from the stories around a couple of months ago, with the City manager fighting for his job, but now it seems that the board have placed their trust – and cash – in him for the next 12 months at least.
We think City will have a host of top targets in mind, and want to replace the outgoing Yaya Toure first and foremost, and Paul Pogba will undoubtedly be their top pick to do that.
City fans. Do you think that Pellegrini is the man to spend all that cash? Will you still comply with FFP? Let us know your thoughts below.
