    Aguero, Yaya & Silva etc moved to City because of the project sold to them, underpinned by wages matched only by the very best. The convincer to the dream was the top end wages. Do you honestly think Yaya & Aguero came here simply for the dough? Not even the mega wages on offer could convince Kaka, but City had no choice back then other than to pay top dollar for fees & wages.

    I saw a stat the other day saying we'd spent £1.5bn gross, in transfer fees since 2008. What wasn't mentioned was how far behind the starting line City were at the time in comparison to Europe's best, & that we had Hughes as our manager, when trying to attract football's best talent to move us from being perennial strugglers, to becoming serial winners with Guardiola as our manager.

    As it stands, our record player purchase is over 3 times less than the world record, & ManUre, Chelsea & the Dippers have paid out more for their record buys than we have. A bit of perspective is required here.

    Guess he'll sign for counseling on how to survive that hard life in Paris with 500k per week. Poor boy.

    Far from being done according to Di Marzio and his associates.
    Could easily end up in the same way than with de Jong if Barcelona decides to gazump once again the deal.

    Still, would be a good story :


    Offer is supposed to be 5 year deal, 10 M net + 5 M bonus (3 for Ligue 1 win + 2 for CL semi final).

    Yeah, i put the supposed wage package (15 M bonus included) in an edit of my post.

    Dunno what exactly will happen it this goes through but it was rumoured Thiago Silva and/or Kimpembe could be let go to recoup transfer fee and salary space.

    At least, if he joins PSG, he will make the unanimity against his choice. Hilarious to see how all supporters from all the world supporting even rival teams are moaning. They would prefer to see him at their rivals instead of seeing him being wasted at PSG. Hahaha.

    Football fans. Going mental when someone say something bad and wrong about their club, but all too happy to belittle other clubs and saying bad and wrong things about them.

    Only allure with PSG is money under Qataris, no one has those sort of limitless finances - always down to choice between money and sporting project

    Plus, pizza boy always gets the exorbitant agent fee he seeks - only desperate clubs make that deal with the devil

    That's it! Had enough of this Tripe.
    I've read he's going away to think, but wants playing time before going to somewhere like Barca.

    The only place where he'll guarantee the money and the game time will be at United.

    Everywhere else is a competition for places.

    No Champions League at OT though, could rule them out.

    A transfer to PSG would come with a huge salary increase, guaranteed playing time in a relatively low pressure environment, and a shot at a champions league title all while leaving the door open to move to another "elite" club in a few years time. Oh, and you get to live in Paris. Why is anyone confused why a 19 year old kid would find PSG appealing?
