Hughes Threatens To Quit City

Manchester City could start their Premier League campaign without a manager, as the relationship between Mark Hughes and owner Thaksin Shinawatra continues to tauten...

Hughes made it clear when he arrived at Eastlands earlier in the summer that he would not be bullied into compromising his playing squad by the Thaksin or anyone else at the club.

But that is exactly the situation the Welshman currently faces, as City have supposedly attempted to sell Vedran Corluka and Stephen Ireland without the manager's consent.

Indeed, Corluka's agent revealed recently that the Croatian defender underwent a medical and agreed personal terms with Tottenham Hotpsur at the weekend, while Ireland has long been on the radar of Sunderland boss Roy Keane.

Combined with the fact that Hughes has been given nowhere near as much spending money as expected, the 44-year-old is crying foul over broken promises and could quit the club following a bust-up with director Paul Aldridge.

The Citizens are already in crisis mode over the Thaksin's future at the club, as the former Prime Minister of Thailand has had his assets frozen amid corruption allegations in his homeland.

And Hughes' departure would only add more woe to what is fast becoming a catastrophic summer for the Sky Blues.

"This is not the dream package sold to Mark," a City source told The Sun.

"The club is falling apart and nobody knows how much longer Shinawatra will hang around.

"It feels as though we’re in meltdown and all Mark is trying to do is hang on to everything for the sake of the club.

"But if it carries on — and players are sold without his consent — he won’t stand any more. He’ll just walk."
