Manchester City are just one club in the Premier League who like splashing the cash; and they certainly did that this summer.
City made a five signings, bringing in Jesus Navas, Stevan Jovetic, Alvaro Negredo, Martin Demichelis and Fernandinho, spending over £100million for their famous five in the process.
Today we focus on Stevan Jovetic in particular; personally, I don't feel he was needed at Manchester City.
The Citizens paid £22million for the Montenegrin, a massive sum, the same amount as they paid for Alvaro Negredo who has been spectacular. Although Jovetic hasn't.
Now in writing this I'm not slagging him off, I know he hasn't played a lot because of injury, and I'm not saying he is a bad player at all.
I am saying that Manchester City didn't actually need to buy Stevan Jovetic, they already had Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and obviously they would have Alvaro Negredo, who has performed a lot better than Jovetic.
Carlos Tevez might have also put off his move to Italian giants Juventus, but this cannot be said for certain. John Guidetti, a youngster, also could have made a few starts for the Citizens if he hadn't have left for Stoke on loan.
During this campaign Negredo and Aguero have formed a formidable partnership, with Edin Dzeko in and out. Stevan Jovetic does not get a look in. I know that Pellegrini couldn't be sure, but was it not just a panic buy more than anything?
If you know you already have three capable strikers, if not four then I see no reason why you'd need to buy another one who would not be reassured of first-team football.
We don't question Manuel Pellegrini a lot, but his logics here make me scratch my head vividly in confusion.
It's a shame really, where Jovetic was he was playing regularly and made quite a striker, but since his move his reputation hasn't particularly blossomed.
All I can think is money, could wages have been the factor which brought him to the Etihad, when really he knew what he would have to compete with.
