Mancini says Man City MUST spend big to improve his squad

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says he needs to break the bank to improve his squad.

Mancini, who has spent over £200m since succeeding Mark Hughes three seasons ago, says new rules should be introduced instead to stop clubs like his from getting ripped off.

The Italian - whose side travel to Southampton today - is keen to land Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani in the summer, but might have to shell out almost £60m to get his man.

"In football, if you work well, you can find good players without spending maybe £30m on one player," he said.

"But when City move for a player, if his value is £10m, they ask £30m. There should be other rules for this."
