Next Sunday's Community Shield match between Chelsea F.C. and Manchester City indicated the start of another English Premier League season. What this also indicates is that there is very little time left in the summer transfer window.
Manchester City has been one of the most free spending clubs in the world over the past two or three seasons, and it has paid off with trophies; City has claimed both the FA Cup and League Title in the past two seasons under Mancini.
This summer, however, Manchester City has been very quiet in the transfer market. Selling a few fringe players and somewhat surprisingly not adding any big names to the side.
While it appears as though City may begin the 2012-13 campaign with the same side that earned the Citizens their first title in 44 years, there are still a few deals lingering that Mancini could bite at before the transfer window closes.
