Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been told that his summer spending spree will end following the acquisition of France international Eliaquim Mangala from Porto.

Chief executive Ferran Soriano has stated the all business will be concluded once a central defender has been signed, with Mangala that player. A deal is expected to be announced imminently.

“We don’t plan season by season, we plan in cycles. We knew one year ago the positions we wanted to reinforce in the team and we did it,” Soriano said.

“We have a new right back, a new holding midfielder and we will have a new central defender and that’s it. We don’t need to sign new players for the sake of it.”

Arsene Wenger has identified the new campaign as a “big season” for Jack Wilshere as the young midfielder looks to kickstart his career by remaining injury free for as long as possible.

The Arsenal manager has described Wilshere as being in the “best shape” he has ever seen him during pre-season, and is hopeful this will be a springboard to success.
