As the madness of the January transfer window begins, there are plenty of rumours in the press that include the big spenders of the past few transfer windows, Manchester City.
Over the past few years, big names like Sergio Aguero, Robinho, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri have been brought into the Etihad Stadium to strengthen the City squad.
However, with the impending start of UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules next season, City will not be able to spend the same amount of money that they have in the past.
Roberto Mancini and company will have to follow the policy they put in place during the summer transfer window by bringing in young, inexpensive players like Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair.
With that same transfer strategy likely in place for January, it is time to state the most ridiculous rumours about Manchester City for the January transfer window.
