Sterling and KDB are more recent purchases, and again we could have had either of them if you look at the money we were spending at the time. If memory serves the sages on here said we didnít need Sterling because we had Januzaj.

The point is not about quality, itís about money. We spent a lot of money, on the wrong players. And are continuing to do so under Mourinho.
Well yes, it is about quality.

How many players did we have close to their ability? Silva and Aguero were signed back in the "no value" era

And yes, you're right, Januzaj was massively misjudged

City's most important players are still those he inherited. Fernandinho, Silva, De Bruyne, Aguerro & Sterling . Pep has signed 13 players & still at least half the starters & the main ones at that were there when he arrived.

Look at the mess Jose inherited. Him moaning about the money is rightly scoffed at when comparing Utd to 18 other teams in the division, but his job isn't to finish 2nd, its to win the league & the team above him had a bigger budget & a far better starting point.

2nd would be a big improvement on last season which was a big improvement on the one before. So next season winning it has to be the target & Mourinho rightly feels that Utd need massive investment to do that. City won't just stagnate, they will add Alexis & probably a few more.
