City can really hold onto the ball now.
Yaya Toure signed up on a £28m fee from Barca - joins Gareth Barry, Nigel De Jong, Patrick Vieira, and Vincent Kompany in City's growing stable of defensive midfielders.
Remember how it used to be City didn't see a striker they didn't like. There are still eight with Jo, Felipe Caicedo, and Valeri Bojinov out on loan spells. It's a different season and a different player they are going after.
City is swinging from the trees in the transfer market. Jerome Boateng, David Silva, and now Yaya Toure. That is about £70m already in fees.
Edin Dzeko or Mario Balotelli could be the next big name.
