Some top players in European football have left their clubs in order to play for Manchester City or rather watch them play.

You simply can't deny that Manchester City have some incredible talents at their discretion but do they buy players because they need them or because they can?

There is not a team in the Premier League that does not strengthen their team during the transfer window but most of these player actually make it out on to the pitch - not just sat watching from the bench like they do at the Etihad.

In 2012 Manchester City bought Scott Sinclair from Swansea for a fee of £6.2m. He went on to appear 11 times before leaving for West Brom.

Sinclair had impressed a number of clubs in the Premier League whilst at Swansea, He managed 28 goals in 82 appearances, which then provoked the Citizens to make a move for the winger.

Sinclair saw this as a perfect opportunity to win titles and play more European football, however, this vision would soon be blinded watching the European football from the bench and hardly being able to make an appearance with three starts.

This soon led to Sinclair wanted a move away from the club. A loan offer from West Brom was accepted and he must now try to salvage his career.

Further on and players still have not learnt with Stevan Jovetić soon to find himself with his spot on the bench. 

Jovetić moved from Italian club Fiorentina in a deal worth around £22 million after his 35 goals and impressing a number of clubs but has failed to make any impact on the blue half of Manchester.

With only one Premier League start to his name, it is clear to see that Jovetić has not made the best move trying to fight amongst Sergio Agüero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Džeko.

It seems most likely that the reason why most players make the move to the Etihad is a huge wage package but it is not only Manchester City that are up to this.

French giants PSG and AS Monaco are also big spenders who have no qualms offering the big wage packages.

With this in mind, it seems players now look for who offers the most money and not how successful the club will be winning titles and winning games.

This is one of the ways football has changed and become more modern as there is a lot more money than there used to be.
