Sheikh Mansour is spending an amazing £915,000 A DAY to take Manchester City to the very top. Since taking over at Manchester City three years ago, the Arab has committed an incredible £1bn to propel them to the top of the league, says the Daily Mail.

That works out to a cost of £915,000 PER DAY since he took control on September 1, 2008.

This has mainly been spent on big signings for manager Roberto Mancini and the eye-watering salaries that inevitably follow.

Mansour has spent £433m on transfers that has resulted in an aggregate wage bill of £360m.

This summer alone, City spent £75million improving their squad with stars such as Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri.
