Man City Boss Hughes To Identify January Transfer Targets

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has revealed that he is set to outline his plans for the transfer window in January, when the next break in Premier League matches comes in November to new City owner’s the ADUG.

Since the takeover of the ADUG in the summer the Blues have been linked with January moves for a number of world stars, including EURO 2008 Winners Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres (above) at Arsenal and Liverpool respectively. Along with Argentine International Sergio Aguero of Atletico Madrid and FIFA World Player of the Year Kaka at Serie A giants AC Milan also reportedly on the list.

The ADUG have already signalled their intent to make City a force in both the Premiership and Europe, with the British record signing of Brazilian International Robinho from Real Madrid for £32.5million on transfer deadline day to the Eastlands Stadium. With the Arab owner’s expected to splash the cash in January to ensure City’s climb to the top of the European game.

Hughes said: “In the November break, there will be a chance to go over and put our plans and needs to the Abu Dhabi group. We hope we will be able to spend in January.

“We will get better, but we are still a team with obvious frailties and we will work to address them when the transfer window opens again.

“What we need to have is that consistent level of performance and that resoluteness to be able to see games out and take something positive from every game we play. At the moment we are struggling on that point, but we are a young team in terms of experience and development.”
