Manchester City Football Club was purchased in September of 2008 by the Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment, a private equity company owned by United Arab Emirates royal family member Sheik Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Since that time, Man City have splashed out hundreds of millions in the transfer market in an effort to establish themselves as a powerhouse in the English Premier League — just this summer alone, the Blues bankrolled over 130.0 million English pounds in transfer fees paid out for only six players.

As for the total sum spent for the 34 players currently comprising Manchester City’s senior squad, the information compiled by this blog estimates that figure to be 353.035 million English pounds, if one adds in the value of Aston Villa’s new midfielder Stephen Ireland.

—————————————————————————————————————————

NOTE — there is some dispute as to the actual transfer fee, initially reported to be 47.0 million English pounds, paid by Manchester City to cross-town rival for Argentina World Cup striker CARLOS TEVEZ; both the Eastlands club and Media Sports Investments, the third-party agent owning the rights of Tevez, later claimed that figure to be too high.

The transfer fee listed above for England World Cup midfielder JOHN MILNER does not include consideration of Ireland international midfielder STEPHEN IRELAND, who was sent to Aston Villa in a partial player exchange as part of the transfer agreement; Ireland has been valued at 8.73 million English pounds.
