The reliable reporter shared that after already signing three players this summer, then it looked like could end up spending somewhere between £95million and £100million.

“They spent £100million last summer, they’ve already signed three players this summer already, their spending looks as if it could go up to £95million or £100million again,” said Magee on Sky Sports News (9:40am, Monday June 17th).

OPINION

It’s hard to imagine spending loads of money on transfers again as they went a bit mad last summer. only need a few top-quality players to be added to Manuel Pellegrini’s squad so they shouldn’t be expected to pay out nearly £100million again on transfer fees. The only way they should be considering spending anywhere near that much is if they sell a few of their first-team players. However it’s hard to know who they could possibly get rid of. Marko Arnautovic seems settled once again at the Stadium after a strong end to his 2018/19 campaign and it’s hard to see him being sold, it’s also hard to see the likes of Issa Diop and chucked out the door as Pellegrini no doubt views them as important. So with that in mind, you feel would no doubt love Magee to be right about how much their club could spend this summer, but that they may also be a bit worried where this transfer kitty is going to come from.
