Manchester City are ready to spend big this summer.
Chairman of the club Khaldoon Al-Mubarak has promised that the club will be back after their Champions League defeat to Chelsea last weekend, and that it would be a mistake for City to erst on their laurels after winning the Premier League.
And he dropped a broad hint as to where they might be strengthening referencing the departed Sergio Agüero, saying that he would be a hard act to follow but “I am confident that we will find the right player to fill those shoes”.
Khaldoon also stressed that the emphasis would be on quality not quantity, which has been taken as the clearest sign yet that the club are prepared to table a record bid to sign Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane, who has made no secret of his desire to leave North London this summer to move somewhere he can win silverware on a regular basis.
