More reason why Sheikh Mansour will regret choosing Manchester City not Newcastle
Mansoor bin Zayed bin Sultan bin Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, or Sheikh Mansour for short, must still surely regret the day he chose Manchester City and not Newcastle United. Strong rumours at the time of his purchase of Manchester City and since then, have reported that he had also looked at a number of other Premier League clubs including Newcastle United and Everton.

After jetting into Brazil to watch the World Cup opening match, Leonardo DiCaprio decided to hit the beach, pointing his luxury yacht toward the famous turquoise waters off Buzios. DiCaprio, 39, has been spotted shopping, strolling on the beach and soaking up the sun around the resort town made famous by French actress Brigitte Bardot when she vacationed there in the 1960s. The "Wolf of Wall Street" star traveled to Brazil on a private jet Wednesday with 21 friends and is staying on a 482-foot (147-meter) yacht that belongs to Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the owner of the Manchester City Football Club. The yacht, the Topaz, is the fifth-largest in the world and sports three pools, a gym, a jacuzzi, two helipads and a movie theater. Its value is estimated at $400 million. They sailed to Sao Paulo for Thursday's opening match between Brazil and Croatia, where DiCaprio sported a scarf with the Brazilian flag. After Brazil's 3-1 victory, the group headed back north to Buzios, a picturesque ...

Joe Hart believes Premier League champions Manchester City have now established themselves as one of English football's superpowers. Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008 heralded a new era at the club, with global stars such as Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and David Silva being brought to the Etihad Stadium. And City's haul of two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup in the last three years is evidence for Hart that they are now among the country's footballing elite.
Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City's recent success is just the start of a golden era and says there is a 'heart and soul' at the club which a lot of people overlook. City have spent heavily on new players since the takeover by Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan's Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, and have been rewarded with a string of trophies. The club's wealth has been a focus for critics but Kompany insists there is a much broader vision than short-term success at the Etihad Stadium and has highlighted just how they are building for the future. He told the Daily Telegraph: "I will say it loud and clear: at Manchester City, it is all about what you choose to look at. If you look at the money spent on players you will only ever see that side of City. "If you look at the bigger plan, which is investment in the community, facilities and youth teams, you realise there is heart and soul in this club. That is the reason why I am not shy to say this is a great club. The future is bright for Manchester Ci ...
Bacary Sagna will almost double his wages after agreeing to join Manchester City in a deal worth at least £120,000‑a‑week. City are on the verge of announcing the free transfer after Arsenal failed to persuade him to extend his seven-year stay. The Gunners offered to improve Sagna’s £70,000- a-week contract but their package fell short of the offer from City. Turkish champions Fenerbahce did match City’s bid but the 31‑year-old has decided to become the latest Arsenal player to move from the Emirates to the Etihad since the Manchester club were taken over by billionaire Sheikh Mansour in 2008. Emmanuel Adebayor was the first and he has been followed by Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri.

UEFA meets over FFP penalties UEFA will meet on Thursday to discuss and approve penalties for less than 20 European Football Clubs who have been found to have breached financial fair play rules. Two clubs thought to be involved but not yet officially confirmed by UEFA are Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. The investigatory chamber of UEFA (CFCB) will meet over the next two days in Nyon, Switzerland, and approve settlement offers and penalties agreed with Football Clubs they have found guilty of excessive overspending. UEFA and the clubs have to agree to the penalties. If no agreement is made, then the outstanding cases are referred to a higher body within UEFA - the adjudicatory chamber. Settlement offers will not be rubber-stamped by the investigatory chamber until next week and until then, the clubs are not expected to be publicly named. Manchester City are believed to be one of the clubs involved and could face sanctions for huge overspending under the ownership of Sheikh Mansour. The club and U ...
(Interesting piece in today's The Telegraph to put a stop to capitalism in footie. Give it a read): Manchester CiTY may face heavy fine or curbs on their ability to field players for breaking Uefa's Financial Fair Play rules: Manchester City were facing a huge Financial Fair Play sanction on Monday night as Uefa prepared to rule that the spending spree that transformed them into a superpower of the game breached its much-vaunted cost-control regulations. Telegraph Sport has learnt that City, whose billionaire owner, Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has bankrolled the most successful period in the club’s history, will this week be found guilty of failing to comply with FFP rules – barring an improbable 11th-hour reprieve. Paris St-Germain are also poised to be punished by Uefa’s Club Financial Control Body, which was created to police “greed, reckless spending and financial insanity” in European football and will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday to make its first decisions on which clubs will be ...
Rodgers happy with Liverpool’s path By SAPA London - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has no complaints about the way in which the Reds have reached the top of the Premier League table ahead of Sunday's showdown with big-spending Manchester City. City, bankrolled by Sheikh Mansour, won the Premier League in 2012 with a star-studded side many of whom are still at Eastlands. While Liverpool are not exactly paupers, being backed by US-based owner John W Henry and his Fenway Sports Group, the fact is they have spent considerably less on transfers than City, their opponents at Anfield this weekend. Yet, under Rodgers's guidance, the team have risen from seventh in the table at the end of last season to two points clear at the top ahead of this latest round of fixtures. There is no doubt Liverpool's approach off the field, and their attacking style on it, has made them the 'neutrals' favourites to win the title. However, Rodgers was at pains Friday not to criticise the way City, four points adrift in third p ...
Sturridge: I'd still be on City's bench Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has admitted in an interview with the Daily Mirror he would likely still be warming the bench for Manchester City if he hadn't made the decision to leave the club in 2009. Having come through the ranks at City, Sturridge joined Chelsea on a free transfer after a frustrating three years in the first-team set-up. He made just five league starts at City, with his chances limited due to the big-money signings brought in following Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008. "I would not have got to where I am today if I had stayed," said Sturridge, who has shone for Liverpool this season with 23 goals to his name as Brendan Rodgers' Premier League leaders look to move one step closer to a first title since 1990 with victory over City on Sunday. "It was difficult for me at Manchester City as a young player aged 18 or 19, with all the money they have. "Realistically, you look back and they only have Micah Richards from the academy playing for the ...

The Short Situation A few people have been asking questions of Ellis Short, blaming him for our current plight. So, I thought I'd help out with a handy guide to what we can do about the Short situation. 1). The Sheikh Mansour / Khaldoon al Mubarak option The background: Everyone knows that Sheikh Mansour is the richest man in football. The multi-billionaire Abu Dhabi man has bankrolled Manchester City into the next stratosphere of Football Clubs, so if we can get him in charge of our club, we’d be laughing. This, however, could prove slightly tricky, what with him already owning a Football Club and, well, having no interest in Sunderland whatsoever. The plan: We somehow build a time machine – I hear that DeLorean makes a cracking car that can be easily fashioned into one – so we can simply fly back before the Abu Dhabi men have spoken to City, persuade Khaldoon to talk his pal into buying us instead, before flying back to the future where we’ll suddenly be the richest club of all them all. Pros: W ...
STAT ATTACK.,... If Manchester City do not win the Premier League this season they will be crowned the greatest cash-rich flops of all time. Since taking ownership of Manchester City in 2008 Sheikh Mansour has spent over one billion pounds in an attempt to make his team the best in the world. Six years on they aren't even close.
Manchester City have made some stunning progress as a club ever since their financial takeover by Sheikh Mansour, on the pitch and off it. In terms of reaching out to their fans via social media, the club is second to none in terms of providing fans a detailed insight of how the club operates on every level. The weekly ‘Inside City’ feature details the team’s training, the clubs charity work and social calendar events. It is this fly on the wall stuff that really brings the fans closer to their club. The cutting edge academy and training complex has been documented on a regular basis keeping everyone in the loop, no matter where they reside on the planet. The clubs expansion overseas with the New York City franchise and woman’s team have shown that the club really are investing in all the right areas, ensuring they are rooted for a long time to come in every possible aspect. All of this information can be accessed via the social outpourings that come from the club, a comprehensive and continuous f ...

They're underachievers! Jose sticks the boot into City before clash of the Big spenders Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Manchester City have underachieved, particularly in Europe, since the start of one of the most extravagant spending sprees football will ever see. City won a first Premier League title in 44 years in 2012, but have yet to make a firm impact on the Champions League, in which they face the might of Barcelona later this month in the first knockout round. Mourinho was manager early in the Roman Abramovich revolution, guiding Chelsea to a first championship in 50 years, something they successfully defended, while also winning the League Cup twice and the FA Cup in a period bankrolled by the billionaire Russian oligarch. The early trophy return following Abramovich's outlandish spending compares favourably with Sheikh Mansour's outlay under Roberto Mancini, who is now in charge of a Galatasaray team Chelsea face in Europe this month. 'They won one title, won a couple of cups,' said Mourinh ...

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta is relishing the thought of playing against Argentine team-mate Lionel Messi in the Uefa Champions League. City drew Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League allowing Zabaleta and compatriots Sergio Aguero and Martin Demichelis to face Messi for a place in the quarter-finals of Europe's elite competition in the New Year. The 28-year-old told the City's official website: "I played against Lionel for Espanyol against Barcelona and I recall in my second season at City when we played in the Nou Camp in the Joan Gamper Trophy against Barcelona and we won 1-0 with a goal from Martin Petrov so I think we're about level at the moment! "When we were in Barcelona we were very close friends because we were living in the same city and we had known each other for a number of years. "I was just starting out at Espanyol and Lionel was at Barca and when I signed for City, I think two days later the news broke that Sheikh Mansour had bought the club and Lionel always recalls ...

Cole back for Blues Ashley Cole is available again as Chelsea take on Barclays Premier League title rivals Manchester City on Sunday. The England left-back has been absent with a rib problem, but is expected to slot straight into the side in place of Cesar Azpilicueta, the right-back who played on the left in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Schalke. Midfielder Marco Van Ginkel, who is out long-term with a knee injury, is the only injury absentee. Jose Mourinho is well aware his side face a significant test of their title ambitions but the Blues boss is relaxed about the outcome of the Stamford Bridge clash. The contest is one of the most eagerly awaited of the season so far, pitting squads lavishly assembled by Roman Abramovich and Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Mansour, one of the few men in the world with more disposable cash than the Russian oligarch. Chelsea are a point better off than City after eight games and enter the contest on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run which has included 14 goals in their l ...

About 30 years ago,I had the,"pleasure" of playing football against the majority of players that won The FA Youth Cup for Manchester City! A few years later,lots of them went onto play for Manchester City and,thus,do what every blue dreamed of doing! Paul Lake was amongst those players and,it was on my 23d birthday that his career was,effectively, ended! Lakey was badly treated by our club and the then chairman,Peter Swales and it's safe to say that,if Sheikh Mansour would have been in charge,Lakey would have fulfilled his potential! This isn't me having a go at Peter Swales,as,he loved the club! A succession of owners came and went,but,only Sheikh Mansour employed him! Now he is flying the nest and going to work for The Premier League! Good luck Lakey,as,you'll be hard pressed to find a more humble and decent man! MCFC:BLUE BLOOD!!
Mark Hughes and Stoke - A match made in heaven? Will Mark Hughes revive his personal fortunes at Stoke City? When Mark Hughes received his marching orders from QPR back in November a lot of people wondered where he would go next. He has certainly had his fair share of decent positions from managing his home country to taking the helm at a series of Premier League clubs. I for one thought his next step would be down into the Championship or below, similar to Steve Bruce's path. However after growing pressure from Stoke City fans, who want a bit more flair and beauty at the Brittania, Tony Pulis departed the club and left behind what could well be the perfect hotseat for Hughes. If you look at his recent record it is easy to think that Hughes is not a good manager, he was replaced by Mancini at Manchester City after only two wins in a run of 11 games, he walked away from Fulham after it appeared that his relationship with club owner Al Fayed broke down and then he was sacked by QPR in the middle of a season ...
Man City MOVE IMMINENT AS NAVAS CONFIRMS SEVILLA EXIT On the move: Navas is expected to sign for Manchester City. Jesus Navas’ proposed move to Manchester City appears to be edging closer after Sevilla coach Unai Emery admitted the forward is likely to leave this summer. Navas is being pursued by City, with recent reports suggesting that incoming manager Manuel Pellegrini wants the 27-year-old to become the first signing of his tenure. Backed by the wealth of Abu Dhabi royal Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Pellegrini will be tasked with reclaiming the Premier League title they surrendered to fierce rivals Manchester United. And the Chilean coach will be supported in the transfer market as he looks to recruit fresh faces in an attempt to boost City’s title hopes, as well as improve their chances of Champions League success. Navas is high on the list of targets and Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Saturday that City officials have arrived in Seville to discuss a deal that will see the Spain inter ...

Wage info: Manchester City £202m (up from £174m) - 87% of turnover Loss - £99m City's wage bill is £40m higher than that of neighbours United despite having £90m less income - this backing from Sheikh Mansour won them the Premier League last season (just). However they are confident of complying with FFP next season. Chelsea £173m (down from £190m) - 66% Loss - £4m Losses fell significantly from £78m in the year before as Chelsea cut back on wages and sold some fringe players, bringing them closer to the FFP regulations. However the amount loaned from owner Roman Abramovich increased by £79m to a staggering total of £896m over nine years, although the club itself is protected from this. Manchester United £162m (up from £153m) - 51% Loss - £5m United's proportion of wages paid to income is one of the lowest in the top flight, a result of their huge £320m turnover, but they remain £420m in debt to owners the Glazer family - with £50m added on in interest last year. They also paid a £10m di ...
Manchester City look set to embark on a major overhaul of their squad when the summer transfer window opens, as owner Sheikh Mansour targets regaining the Premier League title and a vastly improved performance in the Champions League. Much of the speculation has focused on which stars the big-spending Citizens want to sign, with Napoli’s £50 million-rated Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and Cagliari defender Davide Astori said to top their shopping list. However, UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations and the Premier League’s squad size restrictions mean there are likely to be more exits than arrivals at the Etihad Stadium over the close season. With Mancini now gone, the in coming manager will have to agree to off-load much of his squad. Ex-Arsenal centre-back Kolo Toure, third-choice goalkeeper Richard Wright and forgotten men Wayne Bridge and Roque Santa Cruz will definitely be wearing different football kits next season, but they won’t be the only ones. At least one of City’s big-name stri ...
So the MLS has announced that the next expansion team will be a (third) New York based team, co-owned by the New York Yankees and Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who also bought Manchester City before going all FIFA-manager-mode on that team and signing several of the world's most overrated players for ludicrously high sums.

Roberto Mancini sacked by Manchester City owner - Sheikh Mansour
According to reports Manchester United and Manchester City are in contact with Real Madrid for Angel Di Maria.

Despite also attracting interest from PSG, Di Maria is thought to favour a move to the Premier League.

MANCINI... RIGHT OR WRONG? Roberto Mancini says if Manchester City axe him then EVERY Premier League manager should get the boot. But the under-pressure Italian says that one FA Cup, a Prem title and Community Shield in three years should make him just as safe as his cross-town rival. That is despite being 12 points adrift of Alex Ferguson’s United and going out of the Champions League at the group stage. Mancini, whose men host Leeds in the FA Cup fifth round tomorrow, said: “We started our project here three years ago. “In that time we’re always at the top fighting for the title. “We won three trophies, we’ve the chance to win more this year. “All the people who talk about this do not understand football. “Because if City should sack me, the other 19 teams in the league should be without a boss.” Despite the team’s recent woes, Mancini says he still gets on well with chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak. He said: “I speak with Khaldoon every week. He is like me. When we lose, he’s upset. ...
ARE WE TURNING INTO CITY FANS? . 'Healthy rivalry is always a good thing, unless your name’s Carlos' We all love footballing rivalry it’s what makes the beautiful game, or even the peoples game all that much more meaningful and passionate. Last season was arguably the hardest most Reds have had to endure, which sounds insane considering United finished second by a whisker in the Premier League. Walking round Manchester, or even living here, during the Summer was an exercise in humility as City fans seemed to appear from everywhere constantly reminding us of THAT Ageuro goal, THAT performance at the Etihad and THAT 1-6 result. Manchester City have always been local rivals to United although more often than not the two football sides have been fighting different battles. Although one of my earliest football memories was coming to terms with the 5-1 loss at Maine Road for much of my time supporting the Reds, City have been nothing more than a bit of an afterthought. I know most Blues will be foaming at . ...
Roberto Mancini has come out against the Premier League's new Financial Fair Play rules, declaring that wealthy owners should be allowed to bankroll their clubs. Sheikh Mansour: Worth £20 billion Manchester City, who have a net spend of £179 million under Mancini, were one of six top-flight clubs to vote against the regulations to control spending, which will take effect from next season. Clubs will be limited to losses of £105m over a three-year period and those with a wage bill of £52m or over will only be allowed to increase it by £4m per year, plus any extra money earned from commercial and match-day revenue. Points deductions could be applied to those who over-spend. And Mancini said: "I do not agree with this rule. If I am a rich man, I want to spend all my money on my team." [espn.com]
Barclays misled shareholders and the public about one of the biggest investments in the bank's history, a BBC Panorama investigation has found. The bank announced in 2008 that Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour had agreed to invest more than £3bn. But the BBC found that the money, which helped Barclays avoid a bailout by British taxpayers, actually came from the Abu Dhabi government. Barclays said the mistake in its accounts was "a drafting error".
Manchester City's Sheikh Mansour will have to employ the white brief-case tactic employed by Real Madrid and Barcelona if he wants to have a chance of retaining the EPL title!
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board will be delighted today, following yesterday’s vote by the Premier League clubs to impose sanctions against clubs that break new financial restrictions. The vote was very close, but 13 out of 19 voted in favour of the proposals, with Reading abstaining, which was just enough for the two thirds majority. There were two aspects to the proposal. The first is to do with wages. It is not a wage cap exactly, more of a cap on increases for the biggest spenders. From next season, any club whose annual wages are over £52 million will only be able to increase their wages by £4 million the next season. There are currently seven clubs that this will affect. The second part is aimed at stopping clubs operating with huge losses. There will be a restriction, based on a three year rolling system that clubs cannot overspend by over £105 million. The system is designed to allow owners to invest in clubs, but not in one big rush like Sheikh Mansour has done with Manchester City. The ...
Premier League CLUBS REACH AGREEMENT ON COST CONTROL MEASURES = The English Premier League will introduce financial control measures ahead of the competition’s new cycle of broadcast rights, with the threat of points deductions for clubs that do not comply with the new rules. The new regulations include a sustainability clause that will require clubs to work towards break-even while allowing a degree of owner investment going in as equity. A short-term cost control protocol was also agreed, which would limit the amount clubs could raise their player costs by above an agreed floor from centrally distributed revenue. The League’s 20 member clubs have been debating the makeup of the rules since May 2012, but on Thursday the regulations narrowly gained the two-thirds majority needed to be approved. Six clubs – Manchester City, Fulham, West Bromwich Albion, Southampton, Swansea City and Aston Villa – reportedly voted against any restrictions, while Reading is believed to have abstained from the vote.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge feels he never got a proper chance to prove himself at Manchester City after their new-found wealth brought a major change in transfer policy. However, the 23-year-old harbours no hard feelings towards his former club and has no regrets about moving to Chelsea, where opportunities were also limited. Sturridge started training with City's first team aged 17 and made his debut in February 2007, only for his season to soon be curtailed by a hip injury. The takeover by former Thailand prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra in the summer of 2007 took the transfer budget up a level as then manager Sven-Goran Eriksson brought in Rolando Bianchi, Valerie Bojinov, Felipe Caicedo and Benjani during the season. When Eriksson was replaced by Mark Hughes the following campaign - and the mega-rich Sheikh Mansour assumed control of the club -Jo, Robinho, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Craig Bellamy were all brought in. Sturridge was named City's young player of the season in May 2009, but by the ...
Manchester City are closing in on Arsenal and Chelsea in football's money league, according to the latest figures from Deloitte. Premier League champions City, who are owned by Abu Dhabi-based Sheikh Mansour, saw revenues rise by 51% last year as they climbed five places to seventh on the list, just behind London duo Arsenal and Chelsea. Real Madrid continue to top the league ahead of Barcelona, while Manchester United stay in third ahead of Bayern Munich despite a small fall in revenue last season. Austin Houlihan, senior manager in the sports business group at Deloitte, said that City's growth - thanks to Champions League income and the huge new deal with Etihad - was a significant change to the European football landscape. "Manchester City's Premier League title-winning season combined with participation in the Uefa Champions League, helped drive 51% revenue growth to £231.1m, the largest absolute and relative growth of any Money League club," Houlihan said. "The club's progress to the top of the Engl ...
President Sandro Rosell has revealed that Manchester City have attempted to recruit Barcelona's staff employees. Some days ago news was that they have planned £200m, £45m & £35m bids respectively for Lionel Messi, Gerrard Pique & Sergio Busquets. Sheikh Mansour no matter if you go home or not, the way you think reflects that you are not drunk, YOU ARE MAD !! Spending millions doesn't make a great team, its years of planning, hard work, loyalty & lots of talent which is the recipe of a great club & for god's sake you are trying to split Barća family ! Lolxx YOU ARE MAD BRO !!
Roberto Mancini insists he has the full backing of Manchester City's owner and chairman as he continues to give more chances to Mario Balotelli. Mario Balotelli and Roberto Mancini: Best of friends? Mancini said he does not regret his reaction in a training-ground clash with the striker, when the City manager was photographed grabbing Balotelli's bib. But he claims he is willing to offer the 22-year-old "another 100 chances" and said Balotelli, who had refused to leave the practice pitch when his manager ordered him off, will not be punished for his latest indiscretion or sold in the January transfer window. The Italian said owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak share his view that Balotelli needs to improve his attitude but deserves another opportunity. Mancini said: "They always support me and the team and I think they are like me in that they hope every day Mario can change - to think only about his job and playing." Mancini had told the Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport earlier in ...

Manchester United-Manchester City Preview LONDON (SE) - Manchester City have the chance to establish their dominance in England's leading football city as they welcome rivals Manchester United to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson famously branded Manchester City 'the noisy neighbours' after the takeover of Sheikh Mansour in 2007, but City have responded by winning the Premier League title for the first time last season - beating their local rivals twice along the way. However, Ferguson strengthened his squad in the summer, bringing in creative midfielder Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund and Premier League top-scorer Robin van Persie from Arsenal. City boss Roberto Mancini is aware the current Premier League leaders enter this match in the stronger position. "They can lose. They have three points more. We have three points less and we can't lose," said Mancini. "We can't change the history. We are here for only two years, playing together, and they are used to pla ...

With City boss Roberto Mancini on thin ice after crashing out of the Champions League, Real Madrid chief Mourinho is waiting in the wings. And even though Mancini has signed a contract through to 2017, City owner Sheikh Mansour might be tempted to sever ties with the Italian if he can get the former Chelsea manager. Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes recently met with City’s new director of football Txiki Begiristain in Portugal. -DX
FACT: Manchester City finished this season's Champions League campaign as the WORST performing English team in the competition's history. Er, Sheikh Mansour, money well spent?!!
Manchester City spent more than any other Premier League side on agents' fees over the past year, with £10.54m going to player's representatives. It is the second 12-month period in a row that City have topped the list, having spent £9.66m between 1 October 2010 and 30 September 2011. Liverpool committed £8.6m to fees, while Queens Park Rangers spent £6.82m. The £77m total spend by clubs between 1 October 2011 and 30 September 2012 is up £5.13m on the previous 12 months. City, who won the Premier League title in 2011-12, have invested heavily to bring in a series of high- profile players since Sheikh Mansour took over the club in September 2008. During the recent accounting period, City signed Jack Rodwell for £12m from Everton and also completed moves for Javi Garcia (£16m from Benfica),Scott Sinclair (£8m from Swansea), Matija Nastasic (£12m from Fiorentina) and Maicon (undisclosed fee from Inter Milan). QPR's total represents a significant rise from their spend of £2.5m in the previous perio ...

As a close advicer to Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, i've adviced him to 'delete' Roberto Mancini from our Etihad 'folder' at the end of the season, failing to progress from the group stage for the second time is not acceptable at all. Even if he wins the EPL trophy again. My close friend & now new Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has included my name to his list of technical staffs. Mr. Roman, come on, get me my blue jersey.! Off i go to the bridge. Drogba has handed me the keys to his house.
Roberto Mancini looked back at the referee and his assistants and shook his head in disgust but the damage was already done. Manchester City are all but out of the Champions League. For the second season running Sheikh Mansour's millions havefailed to propel the current Premier League champions beyond the group stage. Vincent Kompany was a walking embodiment of City's performance in his interview immediately after the final whistle; a mixture of confusionand apparent tiredness. Yet again, Mancini's team struggledto get going until they were kicked harshly into gear when Ajax raced into a two-goal lead. Mancini has said that a lack of experience is hurting City in Europe. When asked if he agreed with his manager's assessment, Kompany muster up only a dazed "I don't know" before reeling off the usual captain's response of learning from each match. It is true that Mario Balotelli should have had a penalty in the final seconds when he was pulled down from behind by Ricardo van Rhijn. It is true thatAleksandar ...

A few years ago when I came to America I though the Arab nation and their leaders were several decades behind the civilization but I never could have imagined that we were hundreds of years behind. Two days ago I came home from work and I was so tired. I was walking to my bed when my brother asked me to see a documentary with him. First I refused because I wanted to sleep but the title caught my attention, “The Men Who Built America.” I decided to spend a few minutes watching it and those few minutes turned in to hours. I was so impressed at how people like John D. Rockefeller, Carnegie, J.P.Morgan, and Ford who lived in the 18th century had the ability to see the bigger picture. I believe each one of these great men had the ability to predict fifty years into the future and see where they wanted to be. Before I went to bed I remembered Sheikh Mansour who spent almost one billion pounds on Manchester City to win the English Premier League, the league that we don’t even own. J.P. Morgan took a risk a ...

Wednesday, 05 September 2012 - Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood, has admitted, they can’t compete with Chelsea and Manchester City in the transfer market. However, Hill-Wood is confident the club will still compete for honours, under the astute management of Arsene Wenger. "At a certain level, we can't compete," the Gunners chair said. "I don't think majority shareholder Stan Kroenke is going to put the sort of dollars in that Roman Abramovich or Sheikh Mansour are putting into Chelsea or Manchester City.
But, despite the Reds' revised transfer policy in this summer's market, they remain the third biggest spenders of all Premier League clubs over the past decade, with £414million going on Liverpool transfer fees, ahead of Tottenham (£368m), Manchester United (£352m), and Arsenal (£214m). Sheikh Mansour's investment in Manchester City over the past few seasons means the Citizens occupy second place having spent close to £590million, while Roman Abramovich's billions give Chelsea first spot with a total bill of £681million, according to research conducted by Deloitte's Sports Business Group.
What is Financial Fair Play and how will Uefa enforce it on Chelsea & Manchester City? Goal.com analyses the new rules that were phased in from last year and could result in top clubs being banned from the Champions League By Wayne Veysey There is a misconception surrounding Financial Fair Play. Many football observers regard the Uefa rules that are revolutionising how football operates akin to a distant parent whose discipline will not be enforced until some far-off date. To an extent, this is true. Sanctions, including the first possible exclusions for clubs from Uefa competition, will not take place until the 2014-15 season. Yet Financial Fair Play (FFP), the hard-won harvest of Michel Platini's Uefa presidency, is very much here and now. The actions of the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and AC Milan in the last two transfer windows have made that clear, although the extravagant recruitment of Chelsea and, particularly, Paris-Saint Germain, this summer requires greater explanation given the desire ...
Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour is willing to secure top targets Daniel Agger and Daniele De Rossi for manager Roberto Mancini.
ome supporters, of course, would welcome the arrival of a sugar daddy of the Sheikh Mansour variety but many simply wish to see the money made from the sale of players, ones Arsenal have usually developed themselves, put back in to the first team squad. Since 2003, when Roman Abramovich took over Chelsea and triggered a new era of foreign ownership and investment, only one current Premier League team - Newcastle United - have a lower net spend than Arsenal, according to the Transfer League website. The Gunners, in fact, have made a profit of £21.3 million on transfers in those nine years. Manchester City, in contrast, have shelled out a mammoth £382.2m net, while even the likes of Fulham, Sunderland and QPR have a net spend of at least £20m. Usmanov, along with his business partner Farhad Moshiri, makes some valid points in his staggering letter, the likes of which is rarely aired publically. He accuses the club's former shareholders of selling their shares for "vast profits" having benefitted from the ...

On the table are Lassana Diarra, Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema and Nuri Sahin. Kaka would also be the subject of discussions, though City owner Sheikh Mansour is unlikely to want the Brazilian after his famous snub two years ago.

So busy is his diary that he was unable to fly over to witness Manchester City being crowned Premier League champions on Sunday in the most thrilling of circumstances.

Rumours surfacing that Sheikh Mansour wants his name engraved on the Premier League trophy instead of Manchester City's
One could be forgiven for thinking that Manchester City have been paying the highest wages than any other Sports team in the world after all the extravagant shopping done by the Premier League champions elect over the last four years. It turns out that Sheikh Mansour hasn’t wasted so much money as the average person (who can only dream of what he could do with £100,000 a week) thought. City are only third in the list of high paying sports teams. The top two teams in this list are predictably, Spain’s top two league sides with the Catalans surprisingly paying a lot more than their eternal rivals, ‘the Galacticos’. FC Barcelona pays an average of £101,160 per week (£5.4 million a year) to each of their players. Real Madrid, incredibly after spending nearly 350 million pounds since Florentino Perez became the president for the second time, doled out only an average of £90, 859 per week (£4.8 million a year). City at their current rate of just over £86,000 a week (£4.5 million a year), will be ...
