Manchester City: A Desperate Buyer with Loads of Money

(This entry was originally posted on Thursday, January 22nd, 2009)

When most English clubs are taking guard against the current global credit crunch, Manchester City seems to be walking in the opposite road. Following its Arab takeover last Summer, Manchester City has suddenly become rich and found a bucket of money to sign star players like they did by signing Brazilian striker Robinho in Summer transfer window. However, City’s performances so far this season has not been anywhere close to their expectation. In fact, City is just four points above the relegation zone in premier league point table.

Manchester City has recently missed out on signing AC Milan star Kaka, even after launching a record breaking bid for the striker. Now, Thierry Henry has become City’s latest target to run for. The former Arsenal legend is currently playing for Barcelona, but the striker is yet to find his Arsenal form back at Barcelona. However, City is believed not to rush for Henry this season; Henry is reportedly a target of Manchester City next year. Reports also suggest that Barcelona might value the French international at 10 million pounds ($13.9 million) and City would have to spend 100,000 per week for the player.

There are also reports out in the media that City is also interested in Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and rival Manchester United’s Carlos Tevez who is yet to receive a contract extension from United. Manchester City also tried to sing the players like Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, French international Lassana Diarra, Barcelona’s Yaya Toure, and David Villa and David Silva from Valencia, but ended up without any success.
