    Have there been any links at all? Whether or not he leaves this week, he's free in the summer. I figured there would be some noise.

    That's probably why there is no noise, as they know he is free in the summer.

    He won & so did we! It turned out to be a brilliant decision for him & City in the end. He played a decent amount of games in multiple competitions including an Old Trafford away win, deservedly won 2 winners medals, won over quite a lot of City fans with some strong performances & earned a loan move to a decent Everton side but was unfortunately injured in his second game. It was also brilliant for City because had he accepted the transfer to Crystal Palace we would have paid £25+ million for Johnny Evans & wouldn't have signed Laporte in January & he could have potentially ended up elsewhere. I'm extremely thankful Mangala chose to stay.

    Pay him off and let him go.

    In terms of fee versus performance output + on sale value (basically nothing atm), surely one of the worst purchases in our history.

    You win some and you lose some - this has been an epic loss.

    True but every club has them - we haven’t had many others.

    Not the last 4 or 5 years, but Jo, Crocky Santa Cruz, Adebayor, Rodwell and Bianchi, represent about £100m pissed away for near feck all return!

    Feel a bit sorry for him, which sound a strange thing to say when talking about a multi millionaire. In his interview he seemed like a decent bloke and there were good performances along the way. I`m sure he wanted to be a hero here but sometimes its not meant to be.

    It’s hardly hampered Zinchenko though. Pep seems ok with him refusing to leave.
