Bernado Silva, Ederson, Mendy and many more names have been associated with Manchester City in recent weeks. With Silva and Ederson already confirmed, many more names are set to be stamped on the first team of the Citizens sooner than later.
After undergoing an underwhelming season, the recent wave of talents being directed towards the famed noisy neighbours portrays determined statement of intent on getting back to the level they were when Roberto Mancini led them to their first Premier League trophy 5 years ago.
Of course it is an open secret that PepGuardiola’s being at the helm of affairs is playing a big factor in this monstrous spending spree they seem set to carry on throughout the coming transfer window. When you have a coach like the Spaniard in charge of your club granting his signing wishes is hardly a big deal.
The Citizens were one of the very first heavy weight clubs to make a statements signings. First was Bernando Silva from Monaco and then Ederson, fresh from guarding the white line behind the sticks of Benfica to the Portuguese championship rising above Das Bost powered Sporting Lisbon.
Although they underperformed on the European scene, the 23-year old’s individual performance was enough to convince the scouts that the young Brazilian was worth investing in.
The Citizens’ underachievement last term was not far from the obvious holes that were never well plugged throughout the course of the campaign. The most notable of all was watching Bravo put up a disgraceful show in goal till Pep was forced to replace him with 35-year old veteran.
From the look of the tone being set by TxikiBegeristain and his men however, City looks true and well on their part to successfully strengthening their squad for next season
