Are we? Does it? Is there even a transfer there to speak of, let alone be protracted?Clearly city are still a bit annoyed with Napoli and this relatively protracted transfer reflects that.
He's given away two penalties in 183 Serie A appearances. Van Dijk has given away three penalties in 157 Premier League appearances. Doesn't sound like it's an issue.If the stats about his defending on Sly are true I'm not that impressed. Short video clips of a few tackles doesn't prove that he's the answer to our problems. Looks a bit clumsy and has a penalty in him by the looks of him.
No disrespect to Mendy but in games vs. stout competition I'll trade what Mendy gives up defensively for whatever deficits Ake has moving forward.Aké is a better defender than Mendy, but most likely he wouldn’t offer what Mendy offers going forward, crossing ability etc.
But playing our strongest and most reliable defenders, that line-up would stop most teams.
