MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he could sign more players before the start of the Premier League season.
City, which finished second behind Manchester United last season, has already signed Jesus Navas, Fernandinho, Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo. Pellegrini says "the club has spent money on important players, like Stevan and Negredo. But we must remind you there was (Mario) Balotelli and (Carlos) Tevez here last year, so we had to replace two very good players with another two very good players."
The coach adds that City has "the whole month of July and some days of August to finish completely the squad. It's not absolutely complete but it's very near to being complete."
