Vote: Can Man City break into the Big Four next season?
Will the deep pocketed side upset the natural order of things?
With spending power more than equal to the personal fortunes of The Sultan of Brunei, Simon Cowell and Harry Redknapp combined, Manchester City should be a frightening prospect for their Premiership rivals. The first flex of their financial muscles this summer has seen Gareth ‘I demand Champions League football’ Barry join their ranks, and we’re promised plenty more action on the transfer front.
After the Kaka debacle, of course, the world of football collectively pointed and laughed at the nouveau riche outfit like they were a cat playing playing a keyboard. However, Arsene Wenger believes a sea change may be on the horizon, provided the Citizens are able to attract the globally renowned stars that have so far eluded them:
“If Manchester City have a successful period in the buying, financial market, then they could climb to the top four.”
