10 Most Expensive Man City Signings Since Mansour Takeover

With Erling Haaland's reportedly imminent arrival at Manchester City, here are the Premier League club's 10 most expensive signings since Sheikh Mansour took over.

Click through the gallery above to see the most expensive signings in City's history since the Abu Dhabi Group bought the club in 2008, according to Transfermarkt!

According to reports, the Norwegian's arrival at the Etihad Stadium is a "done deal", with the player said to have already agreed personal terms with the Citizens.

The reigning EPL champions are understood to be set to trigger the forward's €75 million (R1.2 billion) release clause in his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Should the deal be completed, that transfer fee would make the Leeds-born striker the Manchester club's third-most expensive signing since the Abu Dhabi Group took a majority stake in the blue half of Manchester.

Above him would be another player City brought in from the German top flight in Kevin De Bruyne. Having signed from Wolfsburg for €76 million (R1.3 billion), the Belgian has been integral to the club's recent success, having helped them capture three league titles in his seven-year stay to date.

A man who joined the Citizens during the same transfer window as De Bruyne is Raheem Sterling, who became, at the time, the most expensive English player in history when City paid Liverpool €63.7 million (R1 billion) for his services.

Sterling has scored 130 goals in his time under both Manuel Pellegrini and Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, firmly establishing himself as one of the greats to play in the Premier League.

Jack Grealish is now the holder of the mantle of England's most expensive player ever, though, after Guardiola procured his services for a record €117.50 million (R2 billion).

Since his arrival in Manchester at the beginning of the 2021/22 season, however, the Birmingham native has failed to assert himself in the City starting XI on a consistent basis, only managing to find the back of the net five times and providing four assists in all competitions this season.

Here are the 10 expected frontrunners for the 2022 Ballon d'Or award:
