Welcome To Manchester, Jo!
Finally, City have got weaving with the cheque book and it's João Alves de Assis Silva who has joined The Blues from CSKA Moscow...
The Faroe Islands is about to be visited by a potential Brazilian international star. Anyone who kept tabs on European football last season will be aware of Jo.
There's no doubt that the lad is big, strong and makes his presence felt. Boy, have City been missing that momentum. Let's hope this is it for the alledged 19 million quid outlay. Had Valeri Bojinov been fit and rampaging this year then Svennis's bacon could well have been saved. However, that's a bad episode in our history that we have to bury.
Now Mark Hughes has the opportunity to pair Bojinov or the likes of Danny Sturridge, Benjani or even Rolando Bianchi with the Brazilian. A mouthwatering prospect. Here's hoping the former rag striker can get the best out of the forwards he decides to keep.
Meanwhile, Vital MCFC understands that Geovanni, Mpenza, Dickov and Sun have have all been either released or not kept on and Isaksson has gone to PSV.
The seismic two weeks we expected is well under way.
