UEFA's decision to lift Manchester City's restrictions on transfer spending could see the club splash serious cash to sign Paul Pogba and Raheem Sterling, reports The Independent.
Last season, City played with 21 players in their Champions League squad, four fewer than usually permitted.
Their transfer spending was capped at £49 million as a punishment for their breach of FFP rules. Lastly, the club's wages were required to remain under that of the 2013-1024 season.
City still have to meet targets set for 2016 in regards to this agreement with UEFA, but have now had their transfer ban lifted. In light of the lifting of the ban, City are now free to make large transfers.
Raheem Sterling and the highly sought after Paul Pogba are both on City's transfer wish list.
The Citizens have already seen two offers for Sterling rejected by Liverpool and are gearing up to make a third one of £50 million. That is more than any club has ever paid for an English player.
They are also in a better position to compete with Barcelona and Juventus for Paul Pogba and could very well make the largest offer yet for the star man.
Wolfsburg star Kevin de Bruyne and Aston Villa's Fabian Delph are also on City's transfer list.
