I think he would be a good buy in terms of bringing out more from Pogba by allowing him to play more freely upfront

I like Matic - he does his job and is a good player but 35-45m? you'd be hoping for someone with the same ability and a lot younger for that imo

Then again the market has went nuts

Yep, any decent player is going for over 30mil nowadays

Proven EPL player and winner isnt actually that bad if you look at it - He has a few years left and the money will be quickly recouped in other ways. If he brings out the best in others, then thats another win

i would take Walker and Mendy.

The point is their signings are about the same quality of players we've signed so far or are we linked with. It's not like we're going after Messi and they are going after Crouch which is easier to sign.

It's Ed who's fornicate around trying to save every penny even tho Jose is practically begging for at least 1 or 2 new signings as soon as possible

City have let go a lot of players. Mainly fullbacks. Zabaletta Korolov, clichy and Sagna

While on paper the signings may be as good is not better than the players theyre replacing, their is going to be at least one flop out of the 3 imo. All 4 of the players let go were long standing players who were the cornerstone of City's defence. It's the same as us losing Evra, Rafael, Fabio and Gary Neville in one go and expecting 3 new signings to come in to replace them straight away.

Walker seriously? Normally I am glad when he is playing against us, just waiting for him to switch off and give something away, and normally he duly obliges.

I wouldn't take Walker. Spurs have done City over there. Also, Stones is a liability, I still can't quite believe they paid that for him.

They're still heavily reliant on Kompany, so if he's out, they will struggle. If I were taking any City defender, it would be him.

Ancelotti said Renato Sanches could be leaving this summer. I was very impressed with him playing for Portugal....

People are calling him a flop at Bayern. The lad is 19 and hasn't had a chance at all. I hate comparisons to former players so much but I see so much seedorf in him. I'd snap him up quickly. Get him in on loan initially to take the pressure of a big fee off him for a season if we can. I love his energy in the middle. Him Herrera and pogba could be quite a midfield three

If their new lads don't adapt incredibly quickly then they will really struggle. I think that's why they signed walker. He knows the league and can be a steady eddy for a few months. They've just paid well over the odds

My problem with Sanches is that I also see a bit of Anderson in him.

Anderson was a bit of a gamble. I liked him for the first few seasons. More than most. He just drifted off. Sanches would still be a gamble. Any young player is a gamble if they haven't done it consistently at the highest level.

You're forgetting Mangala too. Just a cool £42m for him!

Saw a list on Sky of the 10 most expensive transfer fees for defenders of all time - City had FIVE of them!

35mil for a proven premier league player is ok, just not sure Chelsea is willing to sell.

I think they are still sore from the Lukaku incident. They might sell but will drag it out and irritate Mou (and try and stall his integration into the team during preseaon) for as long as they can

Not really, if he is good enough he'll play. Competition is good.

Yep..with CL and the league, we will need a good squad. Martial will hopefully learn that he is still young and needs to learn and improve and accept that he may not be a starter right now but will have the opportunity to become one
