City Working On New Transfer Targets

City Working On New Transfer Targets

Google language translator


Manchester City executive chairman Garry Cook hopes to bring in at least two more players before the transfer deadline.

As of Wednesday 21 January 2009, the club has captured Wayne Bridge, (Chelsea) Craig Bellamy (West Ham) and Nigel de Jong (Hamburg) in deals just short of £40million, nevertheless Cook doesn't want to stop there.

'We had very clear plans going into this transfer window and we are ticking the boxes as we go,' Cook told the club's official website.

'There are a couple of others that we are still working on. As yet, there is nothing more to report - but overall we have had a good transfer window.'

Prior to the January transfer window opening City were purported to be wanting at least five new faces. With three already signed up I wonder who the others will be?

We need a centre back, goal keeper and a superstar in any position, hopefully winger as we have no cover for Robinho or SWP.

Agree eightsin, I was looking for a wide man but there are precious few on the market and a goalkeeper is essential. The barcodes want a reported £15m for Given, thats because we have reportedly paid that for Bellendamy and is no better than Given and thats what the clubs are after as pointed out by Barry Silkman on ssn.I just think we should pay it. The squad needs strengthening. I disagree about going after another superstar in this window. I see the Italians are shoring up the walls, by saying all this confusion is down to City.It is alright Cook saying that they were not getting into the mud slinging, but the Italians are doing that and some is sticking because we just sit there are take it. We should defend ourselves because the British press are beliveing what the Italians are saying and because we don't counter punch they take it is true.
