Pellegrini this season? Hughes/Mancini at City? With a huge budget comes huge expectations.
With regard to Barcelona and Real, both teams can spend huge amounts of money and attract top players. It's a wee bit harder to do that at Real when you've got Barca coming into their own over the past few years.
The problem with City, is the fact that they're not seen as a major club, so it's harder to attract the top players regardless of money. They're not seen as a glamourous club. Hence, why they put in a phenominal transfer fee for Kaka, and he turned them down to go for less to Real.
When it comes down to it, all these arguments about Jose coming to Liverpool are totally pointless, because the top European ring master has joined the top European circus. A match made in hell. Let's hope it all ends Messily.
