The signing that triggered it all and let the world know Manchester City meant business. Mere moments after the 2008 takeover, Brazilian forward Robinho was in the door from Madrid and he initially impressed. However, the performances soon dipped and, after a brief loan to Santos, he was shipped off to AC Milan two years after he had arrived.

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker moved to Manchester City on Friday in a £50million transfer.

The 27-year-old England international is the latest in a long line of big money deals to be completed by City since the 2008 takeover by Sheikh Mansour’s Abu Dhabi United Group.

But, as is often touted, money doesn’t always buy you success no matter how much clubs splash the cash in the hope they will find the players to take them to the next level.

So how have Manchester City’s big-money signings fared during their time at the club?
