The Brothers About To Move Into Manchester?

Google language translator



According to reports in various papers and radio stations, the Brothers of the Ivory Coast are set to bring a new nationality to Manchester City.

Ian Wright told TalkSport radio station that he heard through the "grapevine" that Toure could make his move to Eastlands today. I`m assuming he means Kolo, with his Arsenal connections, which makes his words even more reliable because he will know what`s going on inside Arsenal.

I would hope Toure can see that moving to Manchester City would not necessarily a step down but more a challenge and I would open my arms and welcome him to the club quite confidently. This would be the second signing that has stemmed from a "top 4" club for Mark Hughes.

Elsewhere Yaya Toure has also been linked with a move to Eastland`s and a close source to the deal told The Sun:

"There is an offer for Yaya but the club will do what is necessary to convince the player to stay,'

Two great signings if you believe what you hear. Mark Hughes has been promised one "marquee signing", is Yaya in that category? He is a quality player and if City could get him I`m sure he would turn into one of the best signings ever to grace the earth on City premises.

What ever the stories, I have a good feeling that one if not both will come to City.

wouldnt look too much into it if ian wright said it to be honest. he's still trying to find his was to his made up place "negativeland" would love it soooo much though if this was true....not sure if yaya is a marque signing though but he would be an excellent addition to the team and would play with kompany excellently i feel. Kolo is undoubtedly a class act aswell....hmmm heres hoping

How can anyone doubt a man who presents Gladiators?.... I hope this is true, it would be great news for City and would mean we have formed the main spine of the team with the exception of a new GK. While our attaking options are secondary as we have no problem there at the moment, we need cover on the wings and a prolific striker to educate the youngsters.

I for one would be well pleased if we got both of them.......two really good players who would add the missing strength to the team......But if Ireland went....MH would lose the backing of everyone......myself included.......you certainly DO NOT let go of your best player (of the season so far).......
