Kane and Grealish still both heavily linked. Can’t say I was impressed with either during the euros. Kane in particular looked leggy.

Be interesting to see if we sign anyone of any note this window. Traditionally after we’ve won the title we’ve recruited poorly.

Seen Griezman and even Ronaldo quotes for coming in. For me Rodri isnt all that and resigning Dinho was a must. Signing a Dinho clone should be a priority.

They just said on Chris Evans' breakfast show on Virgin Radio that Kane has signed. 400k per week.

Nothing on Sky Sports though

Surprised it has not been billed as £160Bn.

The press is full of bullshit and we seldom ever find out the true cost or contract terms and conditions. From Spurs point of view the price has to be super-hyped to provide cover for selling their star player to an opponent. For all we know £60m cold be performance linked for phased payment, e.g. City winning CL could spark a payment, or Harry scoring 30 goals in a season could spark a payment. Who knows, and quite frankly I don't think City fans should particularly care and just leave finance to the club executives.

I couldn't care less how much a player costs or what salary they are on.

I just really don't think he fits our style of play at all.

I can remember City were 56 million in debt and we had to sell SWP to balance the books

How times have changed

A lot of hot air and nothing concrete so far. It is not looking good on transfers this summer. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't sign anyone now.

We will definitely sign players and sell players but it’s a game of cat and mouse for now.

Patience needed until near the close of this transfer window I reckon.

All photos of grealish in the new kit have been removed from the Villa website
