"The transfer market is very hard unless the clubs want to go to what I call insane numbers".

But before Mourinho and Co could take off they had to wait for a plane decorated by the sky blue colour of their local rivals and emblazoned with "M-City" on the rear engine to move out of their way. This was understood to be a reference to the financial fair play allegations made against Manchester City in Der Spiegel three weeks ago.
