Harry Redknapp is fearful Manchester City's rise is an inexorable one, with the Tottenham chief claiming he knows the club have already lined up mind blowing signings.
Redknapp's Spurs are likely to miss out on the fourth Champions League qualification place to City and he feels that will enable the Manchester club to press ahead with their plans for domestic and European domination.
City have spent big bringing in the likes of Carlos Tevez, Yaya Toure and David Silva - but were unable to lure even bigger names on account of not being in the Champions League. But with that set to change, Redknapp fears a huge spending spree.
"I know people in the right positions there (at City) have said, 'well, the one thing we couldn't offer was Champions League football'," Redknapp said. "But they tell me they've got one or two players signed already who'll blow your brains out.
"They aren't going to stop until they win the championship and even then the Champions League, are they?
"The man from Abu Dhabi has got so much money. They're going to spend another £200 million probably this summer."
