The owner of Manchester City are willing to bankroll another mega-spending spree at the Club this summer after making it clear he is in full support of Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola’s performance this season, his first in charge has come under increasing questioning.
He will have a trophyless campaign for the first time in his managerial career, and the Citizens are still sweating over automatic Champions League qualification.
According to sources close to the club’s summer recruitment drive, Guardiola will try to sign as many as eight players.
Having spent more than £150million after taking over last summer and can expect a similar budget this year from Sheikh Mansour.
City are after two new full backs and Pep’s targets — Kyle Walker of Tottenham and Valencia’s Jose Gaya — could cost more than £40m. Hector Bellerin is another defender City are looking at.
