    City's £38m Bonucci bid rejected

    Stupid City going after Bonucci when they have recently spent billions on Mangala and Otamendi + they have Kompany. They need a left back.

    No they need a centre back or even two. They were supposed to get Laporte and stones but Laporte shocked us all by re-signing. Kompany injury is serious and recurring, as I said it is same type of injury that ended Hargreaves career, and otamendi just doesn't cut the mustard and should be sold back to Spain. Mangala showed signs of improvement last season but he still can't be leading the line.

    Gurardiola is bad at signing defenders ... but Toure might be converted to a CB ;-)

    That's a good point, some of those guys were expensive too.

    Guardiola builds his back line by moving the defenders to midfield and the midfielders to defence.

    Pique and Caceres were bought by Txiki.

    Thats a good point, i think its due the specific role the CB play in Guardiola's gamemodel, he might never been good signing CB so far but he has improved to the limits players lije Pique, Abidal, Puyol, Boateng, Kimmich and Alaba.

    I mean, its not the same defending deep and as a block than defending big open spaces and being related with the build up, there are only few players capable to do this.

    I disagree with Calumn about Otamendi, he has a lot of qualities to pkay that way (great anticipator, good long passer, quite fast, agressive...) i think Pep will improve him.

    He didn't buy Kirchoff, that's a classic Bayern front office move of snapping up all decently promising young German players and hoping they adapt. Kimmich would be the same thing, although he's the only one who has actually succeeded in the last 20 years.

    Kimmich is a Guardiola signing, he went to RB Leipzig pitch to watch him play against Weigl team.

    Maybe but that doesn't make him his signing. You being a Barcelona should know this.

    Yeah, lets talk about how De Bruyne is going to become one of the top players in the world. A central midfield player. Sterling to fulfil his potential and if Sane signs that is a very tasty attack.

    Sterling is the kind of player he will try to turn into a false 9
