Manchester City Capture First Summer Signing

Manchester City Capture First Summer Signing

Manchester City have wrapped up the signing of German international Jerome Boateng from Hamburg SV.

The 21-year-old defender had announced the move last week, but has now officially put pen to paper, signing a five-year contract.

City boss Roberto Mancini spoke of his delight at capturing the versatile youngster, stating on the clubs offical website: 'This is a very good signing for Manchester City and I am pleased to bring Jerome to the club.

'He is a young player who is already of a very high quality, but I think he can continue to improve at City.

'It's good for Jerome to have agreed terms ahead of the World Cup, so he can now concentrate on playing for Germany.

'And I will be very interested to see how he gets on in the tournament, before welcoming him back to meet his team-mates in pre-season.'


The 6ft 3in defender will join the club at the beginning of July.

Sensible signing. It's these kinds of signings that will enable you to grow into contenders. Too bad you didn't use the same judgement and restraint when you signed Lescott and Santa Cruz, spending well above their value. Oh well. One step closer to top four next season, right?

£10.5 mil is a steal imo.

Teddy: To be honest, if Lescott could stay healthy and display the form he was in before his injury (better than Terry and Ferdinand) he would be worth in the region of what we paid for him.

I suspect that Mancini will not behave like a kid in a sweet shop. He is quite focussed on the type of players he wants and will persevere to get them. The play-making midfielder is still a priority and I think we can expect some movement there soon enough.

arthur7171, finishing third won't be a disaster and i for one will be quite pleased with it but i'm certain the management will be aiming higher than that.
