Were rumored to get Javi Martinez from Bayern.

I don't know about this, his a beast of a player, capable of playing CB and DM but his also injury prone. After that ACL back in 2014, he hasn't been the same in terms of games his played. Although we did also sign Gundogan, who's very similar in that case. Top player but injury prone.

If we get him for a decent price, I don't mind considering we missed out on our first two targets at CB. Pep moved him from DM to CB when Pep took over Bayern.
i liked him..i hope he come
I wouldn't go for Alves. He is old and you guys are rebuilding for the future.
His not going to be our first choice if that's your thinking. We let go of 3 players that can play at RB, so 2 are coming in. Our first choice RB, could be Walker idk and Dani Alves as back up.
i don't think Alves will settle for "back up" plus Pep likes him more than Walker for an obvious reason that he worked with him
Lol nope. If he is coming to city he will play as primary. Pep wants two primaries to compete instead of having an understudy model. Even at 34 yrs it is hard to find someone better than dani.

Similarly Bertrand would be considered a starter to compete with mendy. I think we will get all four and Sanchez. This season is going to be massive :D
+1
Yeah I don't think he'll leave Juve just to be a backup. He'll at least be a starter in his 1st year unless he underperforms
@Tomi, I never said he won't use him, of course he will use Dani considering the amount of rotations Pep makes but if we do sign Kyle Walker, I doubt Walker will be on the bench for many games over a 34 year old Dani Alves who as good as he is, has declined and the speed of the PL might be tough to adjust to at his age. Kyle Walker would be the n1 no doubt.

As for Sanchez, I don't see why we need him tbh. Pep is already trying hard to get G. Jesus and Aguero in the starting XI, where is Sanchez going to play with Sane and Sterling wanting game time? Unless we sell a big name, I don't see how Sanchez can get into our team.
+1
Don't make the same mistake Barca did and underestimate Dani's capability as a 34 year old. The man can play football and I'd bet a lot of money that his age would not stop him from tearing the PL a new one and making Walker earn that starting spot. I think there are Juve fans who would also back me up on that. I'd be happy for Dani if he got to play under Pep again. Him and Sane would be deadly down the right...
@Moe and Glory - kinda agree with both. Dani might not play all the games, but there sure will be fierce competition between the two RBs, and that is exactly what Pep will want. City will benefit from two really good RBs competing. Can't go wrong with either of them.

Dani has a good 1-2 years in him until we find another good RB. Otherwise we promote from our academy in North London :P
^ It will be a fierce battle, Walker is a tank with speed but Dani has pace and is a much better crosser of the ball.
Tomi- You dint explain why do you think you need Sanchez and how will you accommodate him in this team?

---------------Aguero/Jesus---------------

Sane-----------KDB/Sliva----------B Sliva
We won't sign him, not needed.
This video has pretty much been the highlight of the summer for me in terms of football. Poor De Bruyne lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOQHEjiex2c
Anyone watching Bernardo Silva for Portugal against Russia. Brilliant player!
Benjamin Mendy deals looks to be done. Could be announced at the end of the week.
I told you - we are going to end up with Mendy, Bertrand, Walker and Alves
Lol!

Alves, Mendy and Walker seemed like its only a matter of time before its announced. Bertrand idk about but at this point, I'm sure his coming as well.

Have heard nothing about a CB which is worrying. Stones, Otamendi and Kolarov is not going to win us anything.
Would take Dani Alves in a heart beat. Would be an awesome back up to have, his still in great condition and brings so much experience.
back-up? He is a starter at Juve and not sure why he would come here if he is going to be back-up.
$$
@Bazinga, his not a long term Juve starter and Juve knows that, they will replace him very soon. Were offering 5mil for his services, they will most likely take it.
Yup its on BBC as well...looks like it will happen and he will be good temp. solution who will make city attack fu*in scary.
the guy is 34 so we cleared up our full backs because they were all over 30 and replace them with another thats already 34? doesn't make sense to me
Well unless the club wants to drop another 40mil on another FB (crazy) we have to settle. His most likely a back-up until we sign someone else or Maffeo proves himself in la liga next season. Also, lets be honest, even at 34 years old Alves offers more than Sagna and Zabaleta do combined.
But Danny plays like an experienced 28 yr old. I'd take him anyday. His crossing is accurate... with jesus gone now think of how many more goal scoring chances will happen lol
City definitely need another RB though. Dani Alves won't be able to play every game and he's certainly a defensive liability since he pushes up too much. But a very good deal and I'm excited for him.
His not going to be the starting RB, its most likely Kyle Walker with Dani Alves playing as a back-up.
Looks like Hudderfield is going to sign Mooy for 10mil. No surprise, I liked him a lot but they need him more and we need to start selling and making some money back. I hope we can at least get:

Mangala: 18mil
Hart: 15mil
Nasri: 15mil
Fabian Delph: 12mil
Fernando: 10mil
Iheanacho: 20mil
Enes Unal: 12mil

We should not cut prices on our players when some of them are still quality, especially to smaller PL teams considering they earn a lot of money from tv deals.
Hart is not even going for £12 million. I think this is what will happen:

Mangala: 10 mil
Hart: 10 mil
Nasri: 10 mil
Delph: 8 mil
Fernando: 8 mil
Iheanacho: 15 mil
Unal: 12 mil (already done)

So we are looking at an outlay of 73 mill instead of your predicted 102 :P but obviously i am hoping you are closer to the final number lol
i agree with Tomikato, there is no way you will get 15 mil for Hart. He was never a good goalie, it was more a matter of City always having top quality defenders so that kind of kept Hart safe but as soon as he moved to Torino he was exposed. The only game he came handy was the champions league game against Dortmund but even in that game most of the saves he made were shots from long range so it made him look good. No wonder Liverpool pulled out of deal for Hart. So you will be lucky to get 10 mil for him at the moment even teams like crystal palace newcastle etc have better keepers than Hart i think he recently said it himself nobody is interested in him.
Well add 10mil with Aaron Mooy and I forgot about Bony, I'd say 10-12 mil at least. 93-95mil with those two added on. The club is target 100mil in returns for player sales.
What happened to Iheanacho? I genuinely he was the real deal when he got chances but then Jesus arrived and Aguero got pushed out marginalizing Iheanacho even more... The guy is still young and decent young strikers are hard to come by. 15-20 mil would be a disaster if that is all you guys can get for him.
@kiran - there is going to be a buyback clause in Iheanacho's sale - I hope he comes back after getting regular football
That's not even true AgueroCity, hart did a wonderful job on loan at birminham and won the city and england role for his great shot-stopping ability. City haven't had a consistent and good back line in years, thats why you keep buying expensive CBs just about every summer. Otamendi, Mangala, Stones, and we linked with bailly and VVD.

Hart's problem has been his concentration, without much action it seems his brain leaks out his ears and he makes mistakes.,

specifically, he fell out with pep because pep requires a ball playing GK to kick start the offense from the back. Hart isnt so good at distribution.

Pep collecting Silva's?

Good replacement for NILito?
Nolito was replaced by Sane 6 months ago. Also, we are looking to promote our academy player from north London to play on the left wing.

No more Silvas lol
Does anyone think - maybe Pep will play Stones at RB? Ever occurred? He may be less of a defensive liability there lol and his ball playing skills will count for more. Not sure if he can bomb up and down like a powerhouse that is Walker.
His going through a tough patch, his not going to learn much about defensive under Pep. I do feel for him. Although he would not cut it at RB, he doesn't have the speed to bomb up for 90 minutes. Although if we had someone who can teach him how to defend, he would make an excellent CDM. His tall, good strength and his very good on the ball. Some of his best highlights have come from him dribbling from defense and pushing the ball on the counter. That's his strength, for CB he can actually dribble.
Anybody watched Stones against France today? Can't believe Everton milked 47m for him. I doubt Pep can risk playing him in European games where opponents will rip him apart.
+3
I worry for his future at City. As much as I want him to prove people wrong. Stones getting injured and Kompany coming back saved our season. Idk, I want him to succeed but at the same time, if he can't do well this season. Bench him and sell him off. Either way, we knew he wasn't worth the money before we signed him, no surprise at all.
so one bad game for England makes him the worst defender ever?
Aguerocity - I'm sure you can find handful of bad games for city as well. Anyways he is still young and can improve.

Right now he reminds me of Luiz during 2014 world-cup.
+1
He is 23 guys. How about you folks look at Mike Smalling, Phil Jones, Gary Cahill and others. Are they better than him? Cahill yes - but he is 31.

Give him another year or two. No defender is a beast at 23. Not Varane, not Zouma, not anyone else. You guys are expecting too much out of Stones.
CBs peak later. It's more about experience, positioning, understanding, and less about athleticism.

Not many of the top CBs are young. Give him time.
Don't get me wrong, I want him to succeed but its not going to be easy for him. If we get another starting CB this summer, his going to have to fight really hard.
