The Daily Express says Manciniâ€™s summer spending plans have been held up while football administration officer Marwood and chief executive Cook have prioritised trying to slash the size of his inflated squad. .
But potential buyers have so far laughed off the insistence of Marwood and Cook that buying clubs will have to cover the playersâ€™ huge wages and pay a sizeable transfer fee.
â€śItâ€™s crazy,â€ť said a source close to City. â€śMarwood and Cook signed these players for stupid amounts of money and they now expect other clubs to do the same when they havenâ€™t been playing.
â€śNone of this is the Roberto Manciniâ€™s fault, but he could be stuck with a load of players he doesnâ€™t want and miss out on some of the players he does.â€ť
