Not in my lifetime.
What game is there to play along with? He’s now hinted it’s Haaland. People think we’d be all over Kane and then trying to sign Ronaldo if we have Haaland wrapped up in Jan? Or the other alternative, that we fully completed a deal for Haaland in the 2 days since missing out on Ronaldo? As I said, to play along, there has to be a game. What’s the game when it’s clear nonsense? There has to be something that is believable about it.
I hear what you say. i don’t know the guy’s history but he’s made a big call and will get a kicking if it it goes tits up. Personally, I take all these big tips with a big pinch of salt and doubt if any so-called ITK has a track record that stands up to scrutiny.

That said, it’s the claims, counter-claims and gossip that keep the transfer window entertaining.

breaking into heaven.....
let's analyze @93.20blue's history.

Rodri - Said done on july 1 or 2nd - deal was announced on the 3rd - accurate.
Koulibaly (2019) - Said city are not interested.
Cancelo - At first, said won't happen UNLESS city sell danilo first - which was the case.
Cancelo 2 - On august 2nd, said cancelo was having his medical on august 6th. Cancelo was announced august 7th. accurate.
Angelino - Said on july 3rd that he's currently at the etihad signing the contract. he was announced july 3rd. accurate.
Sane (2019) - Said he was staying. He did in fact stay that season, though he was injured in the community shield 3 days before that post. Accurate
Laporte injury (2019) - Said he was out for 4 to 5 months. He ended up being out for 4 months. accurate.
Sancho (2020) - Said he's off to chelsea. inaccurate, but not city related.
Aouar & Almada - Said two players whose names start with A will be joining in the summer, after prodding it was clear he meant Ake and Aouar. one happened, didn't happen. Inaccurate.
Pep & CAS court - Said pep will sign a new contract after we'll win the upcoming cas court. Semi accurate - we won the cas court and pep renewed - but he renewed in november.
Dias & Koulibaly - Said on JUNE 24th (!!!) that city are going to spend big on a CB but he thinks dias is first choice. massively and impressively accurate as no one even mentioned dias at this point.
Ake & torres - Said on july 27th that they will both sign next week - and they both did. accurate.
Koulibaly 2 - Said on july 27th napoli are playing hardball and he expects us to go for someone else. accurate.
Aouar - Said on july 27th he was informed this is done but is being kept quiet. Inaccurate.
Harry kane - Said in summer of 2020 that we're working on a deal for kane. Several journalists in the year since have confirmed we were working on kane but diverted our attention to messi, so I denote this as accurate.
Koulibaly 3 - Said he was informed koulibaly was done, but is being delayed because of messi. inaccurate
Kounde - Says the club moved away from koulibaly and expects the kounde deal to happen, otamendi to be gone. inaccurate with regards to kounde, but didn't say it was done.
Grealish - "Keep your eye on grealish" in september 2020. who knows if we were actually in for him back then! but i will still denote this as accurate :)
Grealish 2 - Says fee agreed at 82m + add ons in july 16th. Perhaps that was the case, we won't know. i'll denote this as somewhat accurate.
Kane - Said kane deal was off on august 23rd. Kane confirms he was staying on august 25th. Accurate.
Ronaldo - Said on friday morning united are hijacking the deal. Extremely and impressively accurate.

That's all I got. To me, this seems very accurate overall, with a few blips that can mostly be attributed to the everchanging nature of football transfers, that can be on and off in the blink of an eye. I see no reason to doubt him for the most part.
Fuck me do you work for the old bill?
But in all honesty that's pretty impressive what you've highlighted there and he is more accurate than not.
I'm off to get my Haaland tattoo.

He was out by a week on Grealish's arrival date, but another seemingly reliable ITK on reddit made the exact same mistake so it's possible there were late shenanigans from the Villa end to mess that one up.
