Man City prove that.
They do. But there is a case for saying we are the exception that proves the rule. I think I'm right in saying that over the years Kieron Dyer, Andy Carroll and Andre Ayew have all had the distinction of being our record signing at the time of their arrival. So has Javier Hernandez, but I'll excuse him because of his record elsewhere.
I think in fairness to Dyer he did have a serious injury (leg broken in two places) only 10 days after making his debut for us.
