Hughes not giving up on John Terry

Mark Hughes has told reporters that he still hopes to sign John Terry in the near future, even though City have had a bid for Terry turned down.
But Hughes still thinks it will happen. Hughes said

"He's obviously the type of player and the calibre of player we need if we're going to progress and compete at the top level," he told BBC Sportsweek. There may be a point that we concede (defeat), but I don't think we're at that point as yet."

Hughes has already spent 80 million pounds on players so far this summer, and has said that he hasn't finished yet. He's already signed Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz, Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor, and more will follow the green brick road to Eastlands.
One former Manchester United player who has moved from the red to the blue side of the city this summer is Tevez, but Hughes said the United connection was not relevant to his decision to sign the Argentine striker.

"What I saw was an outstanding football player that could become available at the end of a loan spell with a competing club," said Hughes, himself a United striker.
"We're all absolutely delighted that he chose to join us. It's a big move for him, what with his connection to Manchester United, but he understands what we're trying to do and he's really excited by the prospect.

With the arrival of all these players, like most new players at their new clubs, are they going to think they are special and disregard the other players, or is Hughes going to lay down the law and tell everyone that he looks at the whole of his squad as equal. If he doesn't, this spending spree could backfire.
