Manchester City's spending will not stop with AC Milan ace Kaka, it has been revealed. The Mail on Sunday says City's Abu Dhabi owners, headed by Sheik Mansour, are hoping to tempt Kaka with the promise that he will be just the first of an incredible roll call of talent who will end up at the City of Manchester Stadium.

That could see City spending vast sums on a hit-list which includes the likes of Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Liverpool's Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, of Chelsea.

Even Manchester United pair Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney are targets, an indication of Sheik Mansour's determination to turn his club into the biggest and most successful club in the world.
