Citizens 4/9 to be Premier League’s top summer spenders

| 11.05.2011

MANCHESTER CITY are 4/9 with Ladbrokes to be the top spenders in the next transfer window.

With a Champions League spot secured the bookies expect the club to get the chequebook out and go 7/4 that they sign a player for more than £50 million. It’s 14/1 they win the Champions League, with 4/9 the price they qualify from their group.

They look assured of a top-four finish again next season at 1/3 and it’s 150/1 they meet rivals United in the Champions League final.

FA Cup final opponents Stoke City also have European football in the bag and earn a 33/1 quote for the Europa League.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’d be really surprised if City’s owners didn’t flash the cash this summer. The odds also suggest they will dining at Europe’s top table for some time now as well.”
