    I don't know about Gibson, but I really rate Callum Chambers. I suggested him as a central defensive target

    Neither he nor Evans are superior to Mangala. If we are willing to spend £30m+ on a home grown player it may as well be Bertrand. There's an argument that we need another full back just as much as a centre half. If a loan is the only option for Mangala, I think we should keep him as our fourth centre back.

    I think he's decent as well Marv. I'd have him over Evans.

    We have spent £210 million on new players (players which are badly needed) and we still need another CB (maybe another one as well), another LB, another CM, another AM another winger (other than Sanchez), Sanchez himself and maybe even another striker as well. Considering the kind of talent we are looking for, you are not going to be able to avoid spending £90 million or less filling all those positions (or even some of them), not these days anyway.

    depends. if we stick with 3 at the back he has a really good chance of being a first teamer imo.

    Why? 4th choice in a side that plays 3-5-2 is still quite a lot of game time with injuries and suspensions.

    The problem with signing left-field players is that you would be gambling your season on the basis that they may or may not turn out to be the real deal, a gamble which City has too often lost and has paid the price for it. Thus while I am not against signing such players as potential first team players (so long as they are able to prove themselves elsewhere before formally becoming part of the Man City first team), I feel we would be more able to reach the goals the club has set by buying proven (WC) players to play in our first team.

    Likewise these days, even (unproven) players with potential seem to cost an absolute fortune these days, so you would not be saving a great deal of money by going down this road to fill in the gaps in our first team.
