Football: Big-spending Manchester City eye yet more signings, says manager Pellegrini
HONG KONG (AFP) - Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini on Friday hinted that more big-money signings were to come, as he underlined the need to get a fast start to the new season.
City have been the biggest spenders in the Premier League over the summer, splurging 83 million pounds (S$160.3 million) on new players.
They have brought in strikers Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla and Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina, as well as Spanish midfielder Jesus Navas and Brazil midfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The deposed Premier League champions, who last month installed Pellegrini to replace the sacked Roberto Mancini, were this week linked with a move for no-nonsense Real Madrid defender Pepe, 30.
