Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak says the club will sign 'a couple' of players this summer as the club plan an assault on the Barclays Premier League title and Champions League.

The Eastlands club have shelled out millions in pursuit of qualification to Europe's premier club competition, and were expected to again play a big part in the transfer market this summer.

But Mubarak says the club will be more restrained in the market this time around.

"What you will see this year is strengthening the squad in areas that we feel require more depth. We don't need quantity, as today we have quality. We just need a couple of players," he said.


City capped a memorable season by beating Stoke City in the FA Cup final, and then in the league, to put them in pole position to finish third in the Barclays Premier League above Arsenal. And this is a season that is a credit to the entire club, according to the chairman.

"It is an incredible feeling. I'm absolutely delighted for everyone involved in the club. The team, the players, coaches and the fans of course. I feel strongly a winning mentality is coming into the team.

"We have an incredible squad with so many talented individuals and a lot of heart in that squad. We have an incredible foundation for incredible years ahead."
