Manchester City are set to move into their new £200million training facility the Mirror reports.

The paper has published quotes from City’s head of infrastructure development and corporate responsibility, Pete Bradshaw, who confirmed the move would take place in the coming weeks.

“Last year we had one of the worst summers we have had with a lot of rain and that put everything back three months,” Bradshaw said.

“We hoped to catch that up. We haven’t managed to do that, so we will take the international break in October to move the first team, the half-term break to move the academy and the rest of the staff will move a fortnight after that.”

The state-of-the-art training complex covers 80-acres and will soon be home to Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.

In other news, Talk Sport has revealed where City are in relation to Manchester United in terms of revenue.

United have made headlines by revealing an annual revenue of £433.2million for last season, and City have been placed in sixth in Talk Sport's list, which revealed the club had a revenue of €316.2m, although that was for the 2012/2013 season.
