Manchester City's Jack Rodwell joins a squad boasting exceptional talent in all departments. His shrewd capture fits the bill for the signings made on Sheikh Mansour's watch...
21 year old Rodwell himself revealed to citytv that negotiations with The Blues had been quietly taking place over the past fortnight, typifying the way the club hierarchy tends to stealth bomber it's transfer business whilst Roberto Mancini fields the hacks questions. Furthermore, Rodwell's arrival serves as a reminder that talk of City's signings since Roberto Mancini was appointed manager being reckless is nonsense.
Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and Football Administration Officer Brian Marwood have overseen a policy that has seen the bulk of players signed in the early to mid twenties age bracket with plenty of seasons ahead of them. The aim is to construct a young, trophy hungry squad capable of dominating English football for years to come. Events at Villa Park yesterday proved the City juggernaut is well on track.
Rodwell, with plenty of Premier League experience joins England internationals Micah Richards, Joe Hart, Adam Johnson, James Milner, Joleon Lescott and Gareth Barry in East Manchester. He won't be short of familiar faces. The midfielder goes straight into the buzzing City squad for the league opener against Southampton.
In the meantime, fed up of the bitterness rife on sites like the MUEN?
