Man City determined not to pay over odds for new signings

Manchester City insist they won't pay over the odds for new signings this summer.

City have not ruled out making a massive bid for a player and maintaining a watching brief on Wolfburg's Edin Dzeko as well as Liverpool pair Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

A City source told the News of the World: "Last summer was an accelerated buying process. As a result, fees were at a premium, especially with players like Santa Cruz and Lescott.

"The club can afford to be a little choosier in terms of negotiation on potential targets. The quality of the squad is strong and the manager believes he only needs a few key additions while also wanting to get value for money for the owners."
