Bottomless wealth makes own problems for Manchester City

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed his interest in Mario Balotelli and James Milner but warned the club will not pay over the odds.

Inter Milan and Aston Villa are both asking around £30 million for their respective stars.

City will break the £100 million barrier for the second successive summer should they secure Balotelli or Milner at the current asking price.

The Eastlands club are the biggest spenders in the Premier League so far this summer, having signed David Silva, Yaya Touré and Jérôme Boateng already in this transfer window.

"When Manchester City want to buy a player, other clubs ask much more than is normal," Mancini said at the official launch press conference of the New York Football Challenge.

"This is not good and it is not right. Until today, it is only City that are moving the market.

"We are interested in good players like Balotelli and Milner but we have time before the market closes in August. We have a lot of different choices."
