The new owner of Manchester City, Dr Sulaiman Al-Fahim, has intimated that Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment (ADUG) could back a £135million bid for Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo in January.

The agreement of an ADUG takeover deal at Eastlands was announced on Monday and was followed by the shock capture of Real Madrid forward Robinho for a British record fee of £32.5million.

Chief executive of Hydra Properties, Al-Fahim is reportedly 10 times richer than his counterpart at Chelsea, Roman Abramovich, and he has revealed there are plans to bring in a 'minimum 18' players to the club.

"Ronaldo has said he wants to play for the biggest club in the world, so we will see in January if he is serious," Al-Fahim said in The Guardian.

"Real Madrid were estimating his value at $160million (£90m) but for a player like that, to actually get him, will cost a lot more; I would think $240million (£135m). But why not? We are going to be the biggest club in the world, bigger than both Real Madrid and Manchester United."

It is also reported City will look to target the likes of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas as the club aim to build a side capable of achieving success in Europe's most prestigious competition.

Al-Fahim added: "We want a team who can win the UEFA Champions League. We're not just going to spend money on anyone, but if we can get the biggest players in the world, and of course if the manager wants them, then we will get them."

Having money & buying the world's best players in no way guarantees success, Real Madrid's team of "galacticos" struggled to win anything, football is a team game & unless you think of that first before buying players you will fail, too many big personalities in 1 team will cause problems, all these players are egotists & wont be happy if they are not top dog

  • Blackburns Phil Jones has just completed a medical with Manchester United and is expected to sign in a £15million deal.
  • Liverpool have had a £16million bid accepted for Sunderlands Jordan Henderson.
  • Sunderland have made an offer for three Man Utd players, with Wesley Brown and Darren Gibson rumoured to be two of the three players.

Got to say I wonder what Young is worth if Henderson is valued at £16million?

Only means something If Villa make out that they would rather sell before his deal runs out. If we start saying that we dont care if he leaves for nothing next summer then that changes everything in my eyes.
