Manuel Pellegrini: Manchester City boss eyeing further signings

City have been among the most active Premier League clubs in the transfer market this summer after missing out on the title last season and losing to Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup Final.

Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic have all been signed by City since Pellegrini replaced Roberto Mancini as coach at the Etihad Stadium.

However, despite having already spent over £80million on new signings, Pellegrini is not ruling out further additions before the transfer window closes.

"The club has spent money on important players, like Stevan and Negredo," said Pellegrini.

"But we must remind you that last year there was Balotelli and Tevez, so we had to replace two very good players with another two very good players.

"So, we have the month of July and some days of August to finish the squad completely. It's not absolutely complete, but it's very near to being complete."

Pellegrini has been linked with a £20million offer for Pepe, but the City boss does not want to talk about specific transfer targets.

He added at a press conference in Hong Kong where City are competing in the Barclays Asia Trophy: "I don't speak about rumours. I think today we have the players we need here.

"I just said that we will see what happens in this month and during August.

"I'm not talking about specific names because it's not better for us, so I don't talk about Pepe or any other names."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
