Darn good question alphieblues. Personally I think........
Tudor
alphieblues, It does not matter If the President wants , The negotiations with Joe began a year ago & I remember the negotiations with Ali Ben Arabia lasted three years, it was before KK took the post of coach & The negotiations ended with him and had been signed in the period KK was the coach.

I don't really think this is a good time for City to be spending 18 mil of a player, what if the new manager doesn't rate him?

Its a risk we must take, before a club like Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal get him! Can't go waiting! Do you think United would of said "Hey lets wait a bit to sign Ronaldo"?
mcfcthriller
ha don't get carried away mcfcthriller - I have never heard of Jo or seen him so can't so much, but it isn't wise to throw around ronaldo's name in the same sentence when he's some guy playing in the russian league - that said he could be a fantastic signing, but 18mil!?!? those russians love their money, they could care less about there club.
los_angeles_villan
I've not seen or heard a lot of him. But what I have seen or heard is very good. He should be a good signing but is way over-priced at 18 mil!
Aamir
ah here we go again man city are going to be signing everyone as usual all these rumors jus keep going 1st it was ronaldinho and eto and deco etc will they ever just tell us that we have signed someone and sven is still the manager
dunne deal
But this one is true, yes I can bring Ronaldo's name into this - he started not in the premier league and he was over priced. It's a risk you take because as I said and (i'm not getting carried away) that we need to act quickly to beat your Chelsea's, United's and your Arsenal's! 30 Mil for Rooney? - waste of money!
