I mean you shouldn't question the Grealish signing at all. Absolutely wonderful footballer, much better than all of Cities current options. KDB has just turned 30 so its very wise to sign Jack now. They're also fairly likely to shift Mahrez/Bernardo or maybe even Sterling. It means instead of City signing 3 players in that position for £120M down the line they've signed one excellent one for, albeit, a very high fee.

Are city really sure about sterling and B.Silva leaving? Because apart from top 6 English clubs everyone else broke.

There's no two ways about it though. City, Chelsea and United are all gonna be on around £100-120M spent with 3 and a half weeks of the window to go.

Dangerous situation to be in. I think all 3 will spend even further. We needed to spend over them this summer to even stand a chance.

Talent not being spread out is bad for football. Some of Sterling, Foden, Silva, Mahrez, Grealish are barely going to play instead of being the star player elsewhere.

Having so much talent just rotting away on the bench(this is not just City) is such a waste for the sport.. Should be more incentive to be the main man on a lesser team over a part time player at a big club.

We aren't getting anywhere near the league or European champions unless we sign an Mbappe, Neymar or Kane and none are possible.

Our targets are European football not the title. We could spend 300m and not trouble City.

Yeah, that's a lot of money for someone whos going to hang on the ball and collect fouls I don't really get it.

Can he become the efficient disciplined minimalist winger that these top teams crave? He's so much of a maverick and free spirit at Villa I really do wonder.

It’s buying someone their rivals can’t get. He’ll play 50 or 60 minutes every other game. This is what’s killing football right here. He should be playing every week.

At some point the PL has to get involved from an entertainment standpoint. Do they want to see all the best players in the league fighting for minutes one one team while the rest of the league gets worse and worse?

The PL as a product is getting worse every time this happens. There needs to be tighter squad restrictions and a salary cap. Super League will be raising its head again in no time if this happens.

They can't sustain it. Sane left, Laporte and at least one of their forwards will.

City could have sterling Foden Mahrez and B.Silva all on bench 2 of them are surely leaving they are too good to play 30 min a game. Not sure who can afford them this is the ridiculous thing

Yeah Mahrez because he’s wrong side of 30. He’s spent his prime years being rotated by Pep.

Only way I can see it is if you bring a salary cap in you can maybe bring in max contracts. Let a Grealish or Mahrez earn double what they can at a bigger club by giving each team one big contract.

Spanish clubs desperately needed that. They should have asked city owner for spare 2B it's nothing for him

Yep, some sort of salary cap is very much required.

If not that, then some sort of proper deterrents for going over a certain wage bill.

I always said to make city and Chelsea stop destroying the league with thier suger daddy is to introduce salary cap but of course PL don't have balls to do that.

How much city salary cap if they get Grealish and Kane surely will be over 500m

Can't we get City and Chelsea to **** off and join the Super League?

I assume Halaand/Raiola straight up refused Chelsea enquiries and made it clear there not an option, Chelsea have moved on to option 2 and at a massive fee which could have been topped up for Halaand.

Not convinced Dortmund would refuse to sell if a club went over that 120mil+ range.

Funniest thing, is how the pundits will be raving about Pep again and how he is SUCH an amazing manager!!

Always totally gloss over the fact that it is harder to not win the league than win it for the clubs he has managed and with the squads and financial clout at his disposal.

feels like this is a dig at the idea of Grealish joining Arsenal

Funny how people keep calling bald fraud Pep great. A tree could manage city to win titles but nah Pep inspires a bunch of nobodies to win things apparently. Luckiest manager in the history of football

Arsenal Quotes

When you start supporting a football club, you don’t support it because of the trophies, or a player, or history, you support it because you found yourself somewhere there; found a place where you belong.
