You guys often boast of Mancini's brilliance with defenders so surely this is a good signing, well minus the wages he's being given. How many natural LB's have you got? A very slow Kolarov who can't handle any average winger with the tiniest bit of speed, don't get me wrong he's a decent LB it's just a major flaw in his game.

He won't be on those wages and there's no way on Earth we would pay £19M for a player on his last year of a contract. Those days are gone... Rumour has it it's £7M and it provides competition at LB. As for TheFamousNo7, you can count of two, maybe three fingers the number of decent left backs that can handle pace in the PL...

£110,000 a week doubt it very much it’s just Newspaper rumors every player we sign seem to be on £110,000 a week according to the media.

£19m!? Since when? I also thought it was £7m, have I missed something? Clichy is a decent leftback but nothing more. He's average going forward and average at defending. But he does have good pace, something Kolarov lacks. Hopefully the competition will cause both to progress and they can then be deployed in different games that suit their playing styles, for example, when playing against pacey wingers use Clichy.

Most newspapers I've read said not 110k, but 90k. And the price is 7m, not 19m. :D

No way are we paying £19m for Clichy - for Nasri maybe, but not Clichy!

£19m for Clichy AND Nasri, I would have thought...

Is this satire of the media quoting ridiculous figures for City targets or a genuine story?
