You’re recommending that we should abandon our ethics and try to renege on our contractual commitments by behaving like twats and forcing players out at the threat of deliberately sabotaging their development.
IMO you should think things through because if we started acting like you suggest (like bad / bloody awful employers) then we’d soon get a reputation for it and we wouldn’t be able to attract the best young players to our academy.
We make great money out of the academy, it supports the rest of our operations and we need it to be successful but you’d have us act like fools and kill the golden goose as an act of spiteful pique.
I think it will be better if we keep our dignity by sticking honestly to our principles because acting like twats is not a good way forward and not very ‘City’.
There isn't much point attracting them if they fuck off at the first chance they get. If a player(Garcia) has made his intentions clear then why should City basically develop him for another team?
If Barca want him and he wants to go, they can pony up. It is not for City to work on Garcia's/Barcelona's time table
As for Tosin, he might want to leave as well which would be very dissapointing. If our academy can't find a young centre-back who is willing to be 4th choice then we might as well forget about the idea and just use it as it's own profit centre. Which, it probably is anyway but with Tosin being local, I'd like to have thought we could sell him the idea of being reserve for a year and seeing how it goes
