So we sold Luiz to Villa for 19mil euros and Delph to Everton for 11mil euros...we have recouped almost half of that 62mil Rodri transfer, good business as usual.
Not bad at all.

Linked with Dani Alves right now. Honestly, he can kiss my a**, I really dislike him as he acted like he was too good to join City and made some snide remarks about the club.
+1
Yeah plus he is what 35? 36? we don't need him.

I am ok with Mendy, Zinchenko on the left and Walker, Danillo on the right. This team made 198 points from 2 seasons. We don't really need anyone else. Maguire is going to United for 90mil pounds it sounds like, we have Fernandinho that can play as a CB if need be.
Lool Everton love buying players past their best
Why do you need Dani Alves? You already have Mendy, Zinchenko and Angelino right?

11m for Delph is a good deal for all parties. He is 29 and have got some 2-3 good years left. He might not be world class but he can help Everton.
We don't have a RB back-up. Danilo is decent but Pep hardly uses him. Pep doesn't seem to trust him much and considering Pep rotates the squad often, Danilo is usually left out. Were lucky Walker is almost always fit and ready but he needs to be rested more often.

Also, I have a feeling City will sign Dani Alves. Cancelo is going to cost 50mil+ and Dani still has something left in the tank but more importantly his a free agent.
Alves is still quality thou and has worked under Pep where he was one of the best
^ But still I'd rather get someone younger that look's promising instead of going for a quick patch in Alves, it's better to solve problems permanently than going for a quick fix that's not good enough to last.
We buy Mahrez for £60 mil pounds and the La Liga president throws a fit about our "overspending" and inflation of the transfer market

This summer:
Hazard to Real - £100+
Felix to Athletico - £100+
Griezmann to Barca - £100+

Not so loud now Mr president.
+1
Lol yeah cause Mahrez is the most expensive transfer in EPL.
La Liga president and his board are the true definition of hypocrites. Wish someone from the City board made a statement about this.
Snachez- huh?? No he is NOT and secondly, yes, completely agree with SilvaMaeatro- The La Liga president and his board are a bunch of crooks who need to shut the f**k up. They have no right to talk about overspending when they themselves shell out 100M plus for players on a regular basis
While I don't agree with La Liga president, Silvamaestro is pointing out one of the cheap transfers in EPL while pointing out all the expensive ones in La Liga.
He's posting out the most expensive transfer Man City had ever made when Mr. Tebas started running his mouth.
+1
He might be angry at money PL clubs are getting. La Liga should focus on distributing TV revenue fairly and which will help other clubs to grow and make the league competitive.
+1
I was looking at the upcoming Liverpool fixtures and I saw us playing in the Community Shield and was like what, why is Liverpool playing? Then I remembered you guys won both spots lol, bastards.
Forgot about that lol!

Should be fun.
+1
£256 for a ticket... 👀 See you all there
That is nuts! With air fare it would probably be closer to 1,256 pounds so I think I'll skip this one
Becouse Wembley is literally thirty minutes away on train, I'm going to go with my cousin.. Ticket prices are more expensive then champions league matches 😂
+1
So you guys beat barca to signing of some 16year old from wba

Expect some moaning coming from Mr. Tebas' (La Liga president) mouth very soon.
Lol nope. Not today.

"Barcelona sign England Under-16 striker Louie Barry from West Brom"
Wtffff how did you guys Rob him like that
Apparently we announced it before all the papers were signed and West Brom are pissed now lol 🤦‍♂️
+1
Lmaoo
Barry's contract expired in June. He is a free agent. Transfer will go on. West Brom cannot do anything about it. Apparently West Brom wants more money as compensation for training him.
+1
I feel like we do some of the most smooth transfers in football as club period now. We narrow down our targets getting rid of the overpriced ones and others, we choose our target, we get our target.
+1
I heard transfer plans and the list of players considered are done way a head of time. In the CDM, De Jong was probably on the list but once we saw he was headed to Barca, the club moved for Rodri. I mean how many people even watched or heard of Rodri before City was linked with him?
Agree with Moe66, chairman Khaldoon said we identify our targets 2 or 3 seasons before we go after them
Many La Liga fans have heard of Rodri but he is one of those type of players where if you don't follow the league you won't know him. I really wanted him to replace Busi so De Jong could play further up. You guys have a gem in your hands.
Sanchez, Jorginho, Fred?
+1
@SA, Yeah that's what I was trying to point out. Most fans outside of Spain don't know Rodri at all. I saw Rodri play a few time for Atleti but didn't know enough about him. Glad to hear that his highly rated.

Yaldho, Your point?

One of them wanted more money, the other choose another manager over Pep and not even sure what happened to Fred. Thought he was joining City but I think Utd placed a bigger bid. In all honestly tho, we dodged 3 bullets.
+1
@Yaldho If you watched Sanchez play at the Copa America, its safe to say the problem is not Sanchez, the problem is Man United. Sanchez in this City team will easily score 20+ every season. Considering FFP we couldn't afford to pay him 500K per week + 70K per game.

As far as Jorginho is concerned watch this clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfyjSzysoH0

If Aguero or Salah was on the end of those balls Jorginho would have been the player with most assists in the league, its not his fault that he had crappy forwards playing in front of him.

As far as Fred goes, we were interested but we never made a bid for him because he doesn't fit Pep's system. His passes are awful, he can't even pass to a player next to him thats literally 10 feet away, I seen him misplace those simple passes time and time again.
My point being its not as smooth as he made it sound. Thats all.

@Footballiscity - you keep going on about how you did not want Fred, well.

Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov has confirmed just how serious City were about signing the 25-year-old at the start of the year.

“You know that we had negotiations with Manchester City this winter, and there was an official offer - a very big figure,” he said. “They offered us around 50 million euros for Fred.

"because he doesn't fit Pep's system" is not the reason you guys didnt get him.
+2
@Yaldho Fred himself wanted City over United, he said it himself on numerous occasions. Maybe after scouting him more closely, the City scouts realized he won't really fit Pep's system. There is a reason why City decided against signing him at the very last minute. It could also have been the FFP issue. Its no secret that he misplaces simple passes and then throws his hands up in agony.

"My point being its not as smooth as he made it sound" I think he said "now" he's talking in the present and recent times. Obviously we had our hit and miss transfers such as Bony, Mangala in the past but since Pep took over all our signings have been spot on. In fact we got Sane for 40mil euros and today Bayern is asking him for 80mil pounds and we are refusing to sell him. All the players that were purchased under Pep's hierarchy have had their prices go up.
+2
I think all or most of Citys transfers have been hits but like every club City wont get all their targets. There are too many big players in the market now for everything to be smooth. Not trying down play the transfer success you guys have had.

Regarding Fred, City made a bid because Pep wanted him but they did not want to offer more because City though they could find better value else where. I thinks its that simple. Its nothing to do with him not fitting Peps style or because he misplace passes.
+3
Wow this thread sure took off unexpectedly.
+1
So apparently Rodri chose us over BAYERN MUNICH! it shows how far we have come as a club when players prefer City over giants like Bayern Munich.

Rodri was the top player with most successful tackles in La Liga last year and also with the highest percentage of accurate passes in Atletico Madrid. Perfect fit for Pep's system.
+2
I'm more impressed with his English. His English blew me away.
He chose pep, and tbh there is a clear progression route at City with fernandinho aging
yeah, he chose pep lol.
LOL

"Maybe City have changed the story. I think City in the last five, six years have changed the story of football, not just in Manchester but in all England," he said.

“I look for the challenge on the sporting front. That’s why I moved here. I love the city, I love Manchester. It’s becoming more Blue and the way they win lots of things, that says this team is growing. That’s why I came here.”

Pep is just the icing on the cake. Pep wasn't here 5 or 6 years ago. He came to the blue side of Manchester for obvious reasons.

Obviously he will not say something like "I came to City not because of Pep" That would be asking for trouble. Every player mentions the coach of any team they are moving to.
For me it's a dream playing with these players becouse I saw them when i was a kid and now I have a chance to play with them, so for me that's great

- okay, no disrespect to that claim but did he really watch the likes of Stephen Ireland etc instead of xavi and iniesta growing up in Spain.

+2
^Hahaha he said that? I gave you the like btw, I found that funny, because when I was watching Stephen Ireland, nobody gave a hoot about City.
+1
@Sergio he is talking about Aguero, Silva, Toure, Kompany, Fernandinho who were playing for City when he was a 12 year old kid. So it makes sense.
I actually can't believe that

.. God I feel old
+1
We've been linked with Nathan Ake of Bournemouth. Would be interesting as he would come much cheaper than Magurie at 40mil and his far more versatile. His played CDM, LB and now CB.
I'd welcome him, I can bet Pep will mold him into even a better player.
I want us to have 4 CBs for the upcoming season. Hope we can keep Otamendi as well. I know Fernandinho can cover in that position but Pep will still play Fernandinho in the holding position as Rodri will need time to adjust.
Maguire has a much higher ceiling, but both over priced due to s**t market
I think Utd will go all out on Maguire. Won't be surprised if we don't land him. I doubt we will match what Leceister are asking for as we already have Laporte, Stones and Otamendi.

If not Ake, young CBs like Nikola Milenkovic from Fiorentina would be a nice addition, calm on the ball and stands at 6'5. Or Southampton's Jan Bednarek, a no nonsense kind of CB that is strong in the air, literally wins every header and his tackling and marking is so good for a young player.
+1
Rodri in the bag, he's only 22 years old. I love this new structure the club has implemented. Doesn't have to be a HUGE STAR but a very good young player with a lot of potential for a decent price.
welcome to the moon
^Blue moon if you please sir.
Finally we got our CDM!
^Yessssssss!!! And he speaks better english than Kane ;)
So Angelino is back from PSV. Happy to see him back and I do hope we keep him around. He was in the Eredivise Team of the Season for the 18/19 season. His provides a lot going forward and ability to get crosses into the box is really good. Would need to work on his positioning and defensive game in the PL but I think Pep can really improve him.

Zinchenko and Angelino in the LB position next season would be great because Mendy is almost never around.
Angelino just signed a new contract so he should be around for a while. I agree about Mendy, the guy is never around, fortunately he's only on 70K per week not some astronomical 350K or 500K per week.

One thing that amazes me is how Pep is keeping all the players happy. Most of the young players would want to play regularly and would be leaving due to lack of playing time. But you have B.Silva, Sane, Sterling and Mahrez fighting over 2 spots. Aguero and Jesus for striker. I am not sure how many minutes they have got last season but its really good player management when you have quality backups and keeping players happy.
+4
^very true.
@Nvj, Pep rotates players around a lot. That's why. Not to mention the potential to stay and work with Pep is something a lot guys would love to do along with the opportunity to compete for the PL title and UCl.
I agree Moe. However for few players like Sane, playing regularly at club level is more important to get into national team as there are lots of German players fighting for his position. He has already missed a world cup. As of now if kdb is fit, I think B.Silva and Sterling will be preferred over Sane and Mahrez.
