Despite shelling out £90 million already the Chilean still isn’t happy with his squad.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he will continue to spend this summer as he looks to further strengthen his new squad.
Since taking from Roberto Mancini in June, Pellegrini has already splashed out almost £90 million to bring Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic to the Etihad Stadium after City missed out on the Premier League title and FA Cup last season.
Having seen Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez depart the club in 2013, the 59-year-old made fortifying his attack a priority but isn’t ruling out making further additions ahead of the new campaign despite having been one of the most active top-flight teams in the transfer window.
“The club has spent money on important players like Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo,” the former Malaga boss told the Daily Mail.
“But you must remember that last year we had [Mario] Balotelli and [Carlos] Tevez. We replaced two very good players with another two very good players.
“We have the rest of July and the whole of August to finish the squad completely. It’s not absolutely complete but very near.”
Pellegrini has also been linked with a £20m swoop for Real Madrid defender Pepe but refused to be drawn into discussions while on the club’s pre-season tour of the Far East.
