MCFC Monday Round Up

MCFC Monday Round Up

A goalkeeper is now believed to be the number one priority for Sven after it was confirmed that Andreas Isaksson had fractured his thumb and will miss the first month of the season.

The tabloids are never slow to jump on the bandwagon and have City linked with Scott Carson, Carlo Cudicini and Marco Amelia.

Carson, however, is overvalued at £9 million and Cudicini is unlikely to be released by Chelsea whilst doubts remain over Cech's fitness.

That makes Livorno's Amelia the most likely choice of the three but don't be surprised if Sven surprises the tabloids again and purchases somebody no-one has linked City to.

Saturday's game against Valencia meanwhile was a worthwhile excercise with several of the new lads getting a run out.

The team looked rusty at times, that is only to be expected, but there were obvious glimpses of potential and the signs were that City will threaten a lot more than they did last season.

City are also reported to be on the verge of naming Palermo's Australian midfielder Mark Bresciano as their ninth signing of the summer.

Bresciano will cost City somewhere in the region of £3 million and will provide further competition for midfield places.

Other newspaper reports have City strongly linked with Benfica's Fernandes; as with all those others that have been linked over the summer I'll wait with baited breath on this one.

sw6cfc, thanks for that, DD, please do not worry about Izaksson, He is only in his early 20's and will get better all the time, he is cuirrently Sweden's number 1 and I am sure he will be with City for a long time yet. The papers seem to think it is between Carson, Cuduchini and Amelia, so my guess is that it is somene completely different, but who knows with Svennis until the player has signed.

Tom, if this is the case, where is your source, It would appear that as of writing this comment, the offical mcfc.co.uk site does not confirm your scoop.

Lots of serious rumours regarding Bresciano but obviously his official transfer registration has not as yet been lodged with the Premier League.

AlphieB's the nearest you get to a rumour from Svennis is 'Yes he's a good player' Loves to keep it tight, otherwise it ups the price, I think he is more concerned with getting a goalie rather than another midefielder, does anyone know apart from SWP good right wingers?
