personally im much more exited about balbuena
Could be they're sounding out Newcastle in case Balbuena has a work permit issue.
He only has 7 caps for Paraguay since 2015.
Given they're outside the top 30, and Balbuena is unlikely to automatically qualify, he'd need to have played 75% of Paraguay's games over a fixed period.

Depending on how Pellegrini sees things we might still look short, or lacking PL experience, at CB.
Starting Diop and Balbuena would be a risk. Reid's injuries make him unreliable, Rice will probably play as a holding DM, that just leaves Ogbonna.

Hard to imagine we'd sign two wingers for £60m and two centre-backs for £50m. Or are we City, are we City, are we City in disguise? Are we City in disguise? ;)
I see what you're saying but...Yeah...No. No we're not. City have just spent £60M on a player who'll struggle to get in the matchday squad let alone the starting XI! :lol: There's free spending and then there's Manchester City's idea of free spending! :lol:

I hate it when people don't know the difference between "your" and "you're". There so stupid.

With the Reid injury (maybe 9 months) and the lack of work permit so far for Balbuana (sp) i think that another CB is a certainty.
Mawson must be back in the frame now, i can't see the Geordies selling Lascelles.

I believe he is inbound to West Ham as we speak.
Monday is announcement day according to C&H,and the deal will probably end up at around the £50m mark with fees and guaranteed add ons.COYI

With 5 players signed already with the potential for at least 2 more I would tentatively say that it has been(subject to how quickly they fit in and/or find their respective feet in the Premiership).

That being the case, do we have finally give some credit to the board? :o :i am genuinely amused:
Yes. I think this is successful. But the best acquisition has been Pellegrini and Husillos.

Investing nearly 100 million in the team.
Bringing in quality
Adding some pace to the side
Looking at younger players rather than has beens.
Buying early (by our standards)

They just need to sell a bit of the deadwood at the club and hopefully we can have a good season. I think the team may need a month or so to gel before we see the best of them.
I hope it is only dead wood that is sold because atm we are free spending,imagine Newcastle had said yeah with the Anderson deal on top that would have been £75m for just those 2,with Fabs,Diop and Andy Yarmolenko costing around £45-50m and still he has said he may want 1-2 more,I pray Arnie's not "already" sold,or any of our best players and there is no punch line.COYI

With the Lascelles deal a none starter we are now making a £20million move for Lyon enforcer Marcelo , I know nothing at all about this player but after the usual investigations he looks a good player .
