Can't expect experienced players to come in and accept being bench fodder. Pep gets away with it because they want to work with him, he rotates a lot and City is in every competition deep.
A kid rotating a kid. Get some experience in. Look at city. CBs in their prime. We already have 2 very young cbs. Don’t need a 3rd one
Any CB we bring has to be as good as Saliba/Gabriel or can be as good in a year and 2. Experience or not does not matter. Martinelli benches Trossard and Saka would bench any RW we get. Its the talent/quality that matters.
Any CB we get in 25yo+ range, if he is willing to be benched behind Saliba he is anyway not worth it. Currently I think no CB which we can realistically get can bench Saliba. Also getting player is not sure shot that they would work in new system team. Look at all the expensive signings ManUtd made.
When competing with city getting good players does not help. You need great or potentially great players.
