Barca better pay over the odds for Cesc, they just got close to 30 million for Yaya and he isnt even in the first team, 50 million or fuck off. But knowing Wenger he will let him leave for less than his worth.

So in the last week Man City have bought David Silva and Yaya Toure. And who have Chelsea bought? Oh yeah, Benayoun  :fpalm:
An empty shell seems so easy to crack.
Got all these questions.
Don't know who I could even ask.
So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream.

Once again I'm not impressed by 'Citehs" signings these players obviously have questionable mentalities. They could and should be playing champions league football next season, but have moved for money, just Like Robinho.
I hope, I do not wait.

Yep, that's why Man City won't be able to build a proper team. Especially as basically the whole first 11 seems to get replaced every year or so now.

Manchester City are preparing to make another controversial summer swoop on Everton with a bid for Mikel Arteta.

City boss Roberto Mancini, who is hoping to take his spending close to the £100million barrier with a £25million offer for Aston Villa’s James Milner this week, will follow that up by asking Everton to name their price for Arteta.

The Merseysiders, who lost a battle to keep Joleon Lescott out of City’s clutches last year when the England defender moved to Eastlands in a £24million deal after a bitter war of words between the two clubs, are already braced for a City bid.

Boss David Moyes does not want to lose the gifted Spanish midfielder.

But last year he blamed his side’s poor start to the season on Lescott’s protracted departure.

Moyes rates Arteta as an even more important player – so it will take a City bid in excess of £25million to take the former Real Sociedad and Rangers playmaker away from Goodison.
I hope, I do not wait.

Manchester City have made Yaya Toure the Premier League's first £200,000-a-week player according to reports.

The £24m signing from Barcelona starts life at Eastlands on £185,000-a-week but has engineered a rise to £221,000-a-week from next April, when the government's new 50% tax rise comes into force.

Toure will take home £5.75million a year after tax.

It is an incredible deal for a player who made just 13 starts for Barca last season.

That's disgusting. He's not even that good. £15million player at most.

Toure is average. Where does he fit in the City team? They already have Barry, De Jong, Kompany & Viera.

Obviously Mancini doesn't fancy a couple of them, only Viera has been his Signing. then again Kompany can play Centre Half, and Barry is versatile too.

Didnt Viera only have a 1 year deal but they gave him another year at the end of the season?

Kompany can play centre half but they a load of them already, cant see Barry playing anywhere else but DM. De Jong must be on the way out the door but knowing City they could just keep the lot. Mancini could be gone after 5 games if they dont start well.

not sure about Viera, but Kompany & Lescott were competing for a place alongside Toure last season.
