Manchester City claim there has been brisk business in Seasoncard sales in the wake of Thaksin Shinawatra´s £81.6million bid for the club.

Prior to the news, more than 22,000 Seasoncards had already been sold ahead of the new Barclays Premier League campaign, but City expect those numbers to swell considerably ahead of what could be an exciting era.

Chief executive Alistair Mackintosh told the club´s official website: "We were initially delighted with the number of early renewals we received from Seasoncard holders, along with the new applicants. But with a new manager and new players to come in before the start of the season, we look forward to more supporters becoming City Seasoncard holders."
