Manchester City Move In On Villa!



David Villa`s £52 million pound transfer to Manchester City, appeared to gather pace last night when the News Of The World revealed that the Spanish forward`s agent is flying out to Manchester to hold talks.

Villa would be set to receive the same wage as Robinho. This is around the £160,000 a week. This deal could be possible because of Valencia`s current financial crisis. This may only be a media story, but I have the feeling there is some truth in the situation.

£20 Million pound move for Ribery

According to the daily star, Manchester City are ready to launch a bid for the French international. This is surely just the media trying to link us with whatever player they haven`t already said.

However I wouldn`t say no.

City ready to let Jo go.

It has been reported that Mark Hughes is ready to cut ties with the lanky Brazilian for a fee around £15 million. I really don`t understand this at all. The bloke has not been given a fair chance, when he played we scored goals, even if it was not his boot the ball was touching before finding the net.

I found it funny when Ched Evans was brought on at Fulham instead of him. Mark I`m losing all my hope in you.

There's no doubt the lad is a top drawer player, but we need a reality check. The deepest winter isn't the best time to be blooding mega stars and there'll be a big element of gamble involved if we go down that road. I say go for Prem experience for whatever price it takes because our league position by NY's eve could mean we are not in a position to take risks.

Honest question : Do you REALLY think you can attract these players being talked so frequently about by just money??
ForeverUnited
No ForeverUnited, I certainly don't. If you asked Robinho he wouldn't agree with that either. I think this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Have you forgotten how much your club spent on Ferdinand, Rooney, Forlan, Veron, Hargreaves, Berbatov etc? If you believe they came for the exquisite joy of cheering up Taggart, then how come they cost so much?
Sindbad
Sindbad - We're Manchester United, we have amassed a LOT of trophies throughtout the years, known all over the world, one of the biggest clubs in the world and according to Forbes, the richest. You have the rishcest OWNER does NOT make you the richest club btw. THAT's why we have attracted those players. How many years has it been since you last won a trophy? Robinho had no choice, he couldnt stay at Madrid and the money offered was good. And those players came for the opportunity to WIN trophies. Simple as...
ForeverUnited
Typical, ForeverUnited; If you are such a great club (I ask again) how come you have to spend so much money to attract top players? Manchester City are as you say, NOT the richest club, just have a rich owner. I ask again -- how come you need a massive squad, have to spend like Chelsea to get anyone decent to play for you -- and have massive debts? Your house is built on sand, and it is shifting...
Sindbad
You take out Rio, Berba and Rooney, the value of our squad is NOWHERE near Chelsea's. We spend if we DESPERATELY need a player we feel can make us better no matter the price. We have massive debts, yes, but what everyone seems to be forgetting is that we're paying off these debts quite comfortably. Manchester United is also the most valuable sports brand in the world, so we will never run of out sponsors. We'll continue to win trophies, make more money, and win some more trophies! Good luck with your 'project' btw
ForeverUnited
