Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is ready to spend big on a new centre-half in January. The Mirror says City are primed to buy a central defender if skipper Vincent Kompany's injury nightmare continues.
Pellegrini said: "Vincent is a very important player for the team but when we started the season we had a squad which would help us if this happened.
"We have other centre-backs who are playing at the moment but Vincent is always an important player."
