Manchester City is yet to announce themselves in this year's summer transfer window and mistakes from previous summers are echoing around The Etihad. The club has been criticized over the last few seasons, leaving some transfers far too late and being forced into signing the likes of Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair in the closing stages of the window.
In his post-season interview City owner Khaldoon Al Mubarak said the former champions will spend big this summer, yet the only arrival so far is 18 year-old Enes Unal from Bursaspor for a reported £3.5m.
Mubarak said 'you will see us in the market, bringing in high quality individuals that fit within what we are aspiring to coming in this summer. 'I can assure you this squad will be stronger and more competitive. I am both confident and excited about what's coming next year'.
City's pursuit of Fabian Delph was brought to an abrupt end, as seems to be the same for Juventus's Paul Pogba. The Frenchman is one of the hottest properties this summer, but City and Barcelona look to have baulked at the £71m asking price for the talented midfielder.
Pellegrini still looks to be the front-runners for Raheem Sterling, however again they look to be apprehensive after Liverpool slapped a £50m price-tag on the youngster.
Naturally there are still two months of the transfer window left, but with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal strengthening in one or two positions City need to act fast before everyone who is available gets snapped up.
