"Manchester City gave me a stack of money this high!"

Manchester City announced this past week that after a fallow few weeks, quiet time is over.

Sheikh Mansour is making it rain in the club that is in the Barclays Premier League.

Stevan Jovetic cost City a mere £25.8 million, per Chris Wheeler, Rik Sharma and Simon Jones of the Daily Mail.

Alvaro Negredo set City back at least another £16.4 million (that figure could go higher) according to Jack de Menezes of the Independent.

It is no surprise that City's summer haul of Jovetic, Negredo, Fernandinho and Jesus Navas has set tongues wagging throughout the league.

No less an authority than Petr Cech mouthed off a bit according to the Sun's Rob Beasley: “Money has never won anything. You can spend as much as you want but you must build a team first."

Right, because Roman Abramovich is known for his judicious use of money.

Daily Mail scribe Wheeler recently wrote that City are not even done yet: "City have spent more than £90 million on new signings so far this summer and are still expected go back into the transfer market for a centre-back."

City are telling Cech and those with similar opinions that they can blame it on the rain, 'cause the rain don't mind.

With all these new players coming in, though, might City see some familiar faces to the door in the process?
