City owner eyes 6 buys, wary of fees

THE Abu Dhabi billionaire owner of Manchester City will not pay "crazy money" for players, but may buy up to six players for next season, the club's chairman yesterday.

"I'm frustrated with people assuming we are going to throw crazy money at deals, that we won't understand true values and we can't negotiate or get value for a player," Khaldoon al Mubarak told The National in a rare interview. "We've had numbers thrown at us that are a joke. There are situations where a 10 million pound player will be offered to us for a 'City price' of 20 million pounds," Mubarak said.
