Manchester City’s thrilling, last-gasp victory in the English Premier League shows money talks – and they have plenty of it.
THE BIG BUCKS
£930 million (R11,6 billion) - spent by Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan to transform Manchester City since he bought the club in 2008.
£266 million (R3,3 billion) - spent by Man City on players in the first three years under Al Nahyan.
£197 million (R2,4 billion) - Manchester City’s losses in the 2010-11 financial year – the biggest in Premiership history.
