£243mil Kaka

Recession? No way! The wealthy Arab who owns Manchester City is willing to pay £243 million to buy footballer Kaka from AC Milan.

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes insisted the Brazilian is worth every penny.

Kaka insist he will not be motivated purely by money. He will want to see how how a move to Manchester will fit into his lifestyle and also find something that will challenge him. Kaka is excited by the vision of helping City become one of the world's top clubs.

Manchester City had earlier bought another Brazilian Robinho for £32.5 million.

Abu Dhabi United Group owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan bought his stakes in Manchester City from former Thai PM Thaksin Shinawatra.

The new chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak was quoted to have said: "We are not going to do crazy stuff, but it makes sense for us to build a dynasty. The Arab owners are prepared to spent £200 million to buy players.

Roman Abramovich of Chelsea is now considered a small investors in English Premier League.

Lets hope Sheikh Mansour will bring his money to Malaysia and buy our Malaysian football Tiger teams and also invest some of his wealth in South Johor Iskandariah and Kencana.
