Supporters back club transfer policy

The majority of supporters back the club’s summer transfer policy of budgeting £30m plus the proceeds of outbound sales.

With over one thousand Claret and Hugh readers voting in yesterday’s poll over 44% said the strategy of spending £30m plus the proceeds of out outbound was the right thing to do. With the sale of Fernandes and Perez yesterday this transfer fund has increased to over £40m and is set to surpass £50m following the sale of Javier Hernandez and Reece Oxford.

A further 31% of readers said whatever keeps Manuel Pellegrini happy.

Nearly 14% said holding on to our best players would be enough while 10% want us to splash out £100m or more

Less than 1% opted for a bunch of freebies and cheap deals.
