Do City Need An Experienced Keeper?
Google language translator
City has been heavily linked with several goalkeepers in recent weeks but the question is, do we really need another keeper?
With Joe Hart and Kasper Schmeichel coming through and showing their vast potential, would it benefit City to sign another goalkeeper while sending Joe and Kasper down the pecking order?
Some people would argue that we definitely need a new shot-stopper, perhaps in an effort to pass on their experience to our young goalies, but surely experience comes from playing matches, and signing another goalkeeper would heavily decrease Hart's playtime and possibly shut the door on Schmeichel's future City career.
Although there are always two sides to a story, and many others believe that for a young keeper to really show their potential they need an already experienced keeper to act as a mentor and nurture their talent.
If Manchester City is to sign another keeper (though they will have to look fast as time is running out, what with Kinnear keen to hold on to his star man Shay Given, and other City target Carlo Cudicini signing for Tottenham earlier today, plus a supposed big money bid being rejected for Iker Casillias), there isn't too much to choose from.
So who should Manchester City approach? Maybe an increased bid for Given would make Kinnear re-think his decision, or perhaps a record bid for Italian shot-stopper Buffon might do the trick.
Who know, but with only seven days left until the transfer window closes; Mark Hughes and his team had better get their skates on.
