Manchester City have completed a sixth summer signing and the fifth on deadline day in the shape of the much coveted and versatile Javi Garcia from Benfica...
Renowned for his physical presence, tough tackling, passing range and ability to play as an attacking or holding midfielder or even as a centre half, the Spaniard who made his international debut this year has been monitored by Europe's elite clubs repeatedly. He's now City's man for £15.8 million on a 4 year deal and The Blues midfield is very much strengthened. The 25 year old's signing represents the icing on a terrific deadline day cake for the City hierarchy. Some shrewd business has been done.
Welcome to Manchester, Javi!
Javi Garcia, O Gladiador
...And as City's summer transfer business concludes, a message to the anti-City brigade hacks in The Street of Shame: Please can we get back to the City ruining football stories now and forget about all the snubs and the doomed because they failed to sign anyone headlines? Thanks.
