How cheeky are these clubs who think they can get our players on the cheap on season-long loans with City paying part of their wages? Tottenham, Liverpool, Villa, Fulham, Marseille - if you want these footballers then pay up both to City in terms of transfer fees and the player in terms of wages.
Why on earth would City want to loan Bellers to Spurs? You know what you get with Craig - 100% all the time, no shirking, no cheating and goals. If you want him, Harry, then cough up my son.
Similarly if RSC fancies the Cote D'Azur, St Tropez, Juan-les-Pins and all (not forgetting how close is Monaco), then its cheque book time for Marseille.
We have paid sometimes heavily for these players (not only the 2 mentioned above) and have paid them perhaps too well. It is down to your powers of persuasion to convince them that less money in a lesser club is the way forward. Spurs and Marseille might be able to offer Champions League football this year, however temporarily, but they are not Manchester City. We had to persuade them to buy into the vision, so it's over to you.
If players are not up for the fight to get into the 25-man squad then they are effectively telling the Club they no longer want the wages they command at Eastlands and want to try their luck elsewhere. With that comes the inability of the club they join not being able to pay them what they get paid now. The modest fees being suggested by City take that into account.
The latest comments surround Dzeko or Balotelli? For me Dzeko every time. He is established, scores goals and is a robust footballer in the mould of our one-time hero Uwe Rosler. Balotelli as I've said once before strikes me as a problem waiting to happen. I would like to be proved wrong but his CV doesn't look good to me.
