Big clubs get linked to big names and that's certainly the case with Manchester City.
Nevermind the definition of big where Manchester City is concerned. Their finances have seen them rise in stature regardless of what many may feel.
City already has an abundance of superstars in their ranks, but rumours continue to link them to more quality players.
With Roberto Mancini reportedly planning a summer clear-out, the Manchester club has been tapped to go after some big names (via the Mirror).
Whether or not these players do end up at the club is another question.
Here are the five biggest names linked to Manchester City this summer.
