City Transfer Urgency Gathering Pace
Google language translator
I've gone on record as saying there'll be no quick fix this month as we face up to the glaring facts of winning only one of our last nine league and cup games.
But immediate impact signings are clearly now required as an obviously deeply divided squad which I suggest is carrying some saboteurs, could well surrender again at Portsmouth.
Mark Hughes has obviously decided he cannot risk continuing in this shambolic state and the newswires are alive tonight with the breaking news that West Ham United's combative midfielder Scott Parker is in advanced talks with the club over a reported £12 million deal.
Once that signing goes through then Blackburn Rovers Roque Santa Cruz is next in line for Eastlands. That transfer will take £18 million and the dreadful Tal Ben Haim to realise. Arsenal defender Kolo Toure is also closing in on the radar. Moves for The Hammers' Craig Bellamy or Pompey's Jermaine Defoe cannot be ruled out.
As debated in our buzzing forums, Hughes looks to have settled upon convincing Blues Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak that he needs to bring in the likes of Wayne Bridge, Parker and RSC, players very familiar with the increasingly physical Premier League to help dig City out of the merde.
Meanwhile, we can only speculate that attempts to secure the signatures of the international superstars that Robinho has called for will be pursued as the icing on a more combative cake.
Of other Premier League experienced players linked with City, Shay Given is a signing many of us would favour and a move for Michael Owen over Craig Bellamy would always be the preferred option.
Abroad, the robust Dutch veteran Mark Van Bommel has issued something of a 'come and get me' statement at Bayern and his attacking young team mate Lukas Podolski is up for grabs at €10 million.
One things for sure, some of the players who have shamed the shirt at Middlesboro, Brighton and at home to Forest may never get the chance to do so again.
