Manchester City – Total Roster Cost


================================================================
Argentina World Cup striker SERGIO “Kun” AGUERO, the 23-year-old who is only the latest in a long line of high-priced attackers to have arrived at the Eastlands club, is off to a fast start for MANCHESTER CITY having scored eight goals in his first six Premier League contests after transferring this summer from Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid for a fee no less than 38.0 million English pounds.
================================================================

Money continues to be something less than a problem for MANCHESTER CITY, backed a company controlled by United Arab Emirates royal family member SHEIK MANSOUR BIN ZAYED AL NAYHAN, even if trophies are not yet in abundance at the Eastlands.

By the blog’s calculations listed here, this year’s Manchester City squad under the tutelage of veteran Italian trainer ROBERTO MANCINI was put together at a total, eye-popping cost of very nearly 370.0 million English pounds (including player exchanges, see Notes) :

—————————————————————-

NOTE — there is some dispute as to the actual transfer fee, intially reported to be 47.0 million English pounds, paid by Manchester City to cross-town rival Manchester United 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 JAMES MILNER does not include consideration for Ireland international midfielder STEPHEN IRELAND, who was sent to FC Aston Villa in a partial player exchange as part of the transfer agreement; Ireland was valued at 8.73 million English pounds.
