Milner Makes It A Magnificent Six For Mancio

Milner Makes It A Magnificent Six For Mancio



Back in form Aston Villa midfielder James Milner will arrive in Manchester this afternoon to undergo a medical and become Roberto Mancini's sixth summer signing...

The Citizens and The Villans have finally agreed the deal which will bring 'Milnergate' to a close with MCFC Academy graduate Stephen Ireland heading to Birmingham as part of a player swap deal. Villa should bank around £16 million on top of last year's £12 million for Milner's England colleague Gareth Barry.

24 year old Milner follows the youth focused player signing policy that Mancio and City's hierarchy have pursued this summer with vigour.

Fellow new Blues Jerome Boateng, Mario Balotelli, YaYa Toure, Aleksander Kolarov, David Silva are a potent mix of internationals with plenty of miles to go on the clock.

Welcome to Manchester City, James and all at VMC wish Stevie well at The Villa.

Milner should be heading to Romania with the already named 23 man squad.

Your getting a great player but stop stealing our stars!! If you try stealing someone else from us again in the way you do your 'business' then Villa will take legal action, no doubt about it!

The change is probably what Ireland needs, Fear.

Players will soon realize what a disgrace Man City are in the way they treat the players, (Ireland and Bellamy) at the end of the day there will be many good players not getting a game and unrest will follow, which leads to poor team spirit, all that will happen with them is players comming and players going no team building Good luck to JM but i think the Villa got the best deal

What Randy Lerner spoke about two or three days ago mate, you asked about Milner, we said he's not for sale at any price, you made a bid, we rejected and told you again to leave it. But still you come back and make another bid, we reject it and again say he's not for sale. Then you come back again with another bid, it's ridiculous! You don't respect any rules the FA have set, you don't respect the views of other clubs. Your just Man City who want everyones top players and if they're not for sale then you just keep raising the bid over and over and over again until you offer way way above stupid money. Your club is absolutely pathetic. When you do win a trophy then the name 'Manchester City FC' won't represent your hard work and that you deserve it, all it will say is that Man City have this trophy because of the owner who took your club over. I can't wait (along with the rest of the county apart from the blue side of Manchester) to see your club flop when your owner gets bored and leaves you. But good luck Jimmy, top bloke!
