This season hasn’t been a memorable or impressive one for Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City as they were knocked out of Champions League in the Round of 16 after losing against Barcelona and couldn’t keep up with Chelsea in the race of the Premier League.

Manchester City has spent over £350 million in signing their players since 2010.

2 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup, 1 Football League Cup and 1 FA Community Shield are all of the pieces of silverware that Manchester City has sealed after having spent that astronomically high amount of money a few years ago.
