There's a lot of strong talk about a few now. Hopefully some real action soon. Be nice to get it all sorted for when pre season starts.

I am guessing they will want to get any new signings in next week and the following week, if possible. I expect three new players coming in, and maybe more going out.

Same as every summer, I'm beginning to lose patience.

I hope City stand firm on their offer for Maguire. Leicester are ripping the arse out of it.

And Utd are spending frenetically yet again offering £70m as a starter for him. Not as good as VanDijk so paying the same or more is hugely inflationary and over the odds. Not that it matters as it is all just like using Monopoly money for clubs these days. Unless it’s City spending the money (not Utd, not Liverpool, not Chelsea, not Spurs, not Arsenal, not Real Madrid, not Bayern Munich, etc) when it allows the press and media to continue their ‘dirty oil money’, ‘ruining football’, inflating prices’, ‘spending dodgy sponsorship money’ coordinated slur campaign.

Ye reports saying that city will match the rags offer but Leicester want atleast £75m. Also suggests that we will go in for Ake for around £40m if we don't get Harry.

Fun and games!

Not that fussed about a centre half if we keep Ota.

Not sure about that Gav. At the mo we have Laporte, Ota, Stones and the signing of the decade, Mangala.

Should go all in.  He'd probably be a starter at CB for the next 7 years.

Also, Ota is 31 and been linked to go back to Spain so we could do with a couple of CB's.

We need him regardless of cost. Oti is near the door and Stones has lost his form

Didn't realise Ota was that old but we have Garcia and Sandler who are both promising prospects. One of them can be fourth centre back this season with the other going out on loan. No need for another centre back unless Ota does leave. Think we need to persevere with Stones. He's had good and bad spells. Hopefully now he can start to be more consistent.

Hmm not sure Gav, with the amount of games we play at such high standard and energy.

If we're looking at centre-backs, what happened to Tosin? I thought he might make it if he stayed at City and Pep got to work on him...

Don't think he had a great season at WBA.

If we buy another decent "1st-team-ready" CB now, then there's hardly the chance Tosin could come back after another season on loan and make an impact.

So, just not quite good enough? Given the standard City now play at, I suppose it's not really surprising when it turns out like that. What's more surprising is that anyone ever comes through.

Players that come through to our first team have to be top class. Pep has quickly seen that in Foden. He has also indicated faith in Garcia. With Sandler going out on loan then I expect Garcia to be No. 4 and play most domestic cup games. If we buy Maguire then one of the other senior centre halves has to go in my opinion. Ota has already indicated he doesn't want another season like last when he was bit part really after a great season before.
