Raul was linked with a move to City in the Spanish media earlier today.
“We keep on getting linked with players and that’s going to happen every week,” Hughes told Sky Sports News.
“I think maybe if you work back to where the story originated, I would suggest it’s come from Spain, it’s not come from England.”
“We are looking to bring players that will obviously complement the good players we already have,” added Hughes.
“We have significant areas of the team that we want to strengthen and we will do that with the best players we are able to acquire
“If the right player isn’t available we don’t want to go for second best.
“We will look at what’s there and if we have to wait a little bit longer then so be it.
“It is about making sure that when we do go into the market we get the right quality and the right type of player.
“We are looking at all aspects of anyone we obviously covet.
“We obviously look at injury records, the guys as individuals and as personalities and actually do more groundwork leading into hoping to sign these players than has possibly happened in the past. As a consequence we will make less mistakes in the future.”
