They say in Manchester that "we do things differently here," and that maxim certainly applies to how the city's two football clubs have acted in the transfer market this summer. While Manchester City have dug deep and largely paid over the odds for players to get deals done, Manchester United have played a game of patience, attempting to chip away at a selling club's resolve in order to pay what they believe to be market value for their transfer targets.

Some might argue that Romelu Lukaku, whose...
