with the money they throwing around, i wouldn't be surprised they pay 120 million <or whatever is his buy out clause> for Ronaldo with wages of 500k a week.

You have to understand, City cannot afford it anymore. Sure enough their owners can, but the financial rules mean City can no longer splurge 150 million pounds every single summer if they want to meet the rules and not face sanctions.

They will surely buy a couple more players, but only if they have managed to offload a bunch of players that were on loan to reduce their wage bill.

Is it not obvious enough when they apparently pulled out of the Hazard transfer early because of his wage and agent demands? Previously they would simply have just agreed.

The days of them blowing money like that willy nilly are over, at least for now.

How about playing Adam Johnson more? He's one of the most explosive wingers in the prem and spends most of the time on the bench.
