Man City boss Hughes wants Xabi-style playmaker

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is in the market for a stylish playmaker in January.

The Daily Mail says Hughes has been on the look-out for another playmaker. A huge fan of Xabi Alonso, who eventually left Liverpool for Real Madrid, the City boss would like a player in a similar mould.

Such players will not come cheap and prices automatically go up a notch when City are doing the bidding. But, having found £120m-plus for Hughes to spend in the summer, there is no sign yet of the club's Arab owners tightening their belts.
