Mancini: Manchester City need to spend big this summer to keep up with United

The Italian has urged his club to splash the clash in the transfer window if they are to remain competitive in the Premier League and keep up with their title rivals

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has urged his side to spend big if they want to pose a serious challenge in the Premier League title race next year.

The reigning champions are currently 15 points behind league leaders Manchester United ahead of Monday's derby and the Italian has stressed that money must be spent if things are to be different next year.

Mancini told The Mirror: "I don’t know how much money we can spend in the summer, but in the past United spent a lot of money to buy important players and now they don’t need to spend £100 million every year.

With the best defense in the league (stats don't lie) we only need to shore up the midfield and strike force. We could maybe get a new LB as Kolorovs not good enough but other than that we should go for more attacking players as are inability to score is what has cost us this season. Not our ability to hold off goals.
