    I do feel like we could have used one more talented and speedy attacking player... One injury and we're bound to the likes of Young and Depay filling in on the wing.

    Can't believe we're letting City buy all the good players like Sane and Gundogan whilst we're stuck with a 43 year old on £750,000 a week, a player who has only had 3 good seasons at Juventus and is costing us £160m on £340,000 per week and someone who only directly contributed to 26 goals last season in the Bundesliga. Clearly shows City are the bigger team.

    Never seen him play. Seems highly rated though.

    Wonder if he'll have sane impact as Sterling.

    I really hope your commentators won't actually pronounce his name like 'sane'.

    He was impressive (for his age) whenever I watched him in the CL but haven't seen enough of him to form a proper opinion. I really hope he benches Sterling though.

    Sterling was already going to the bench mate. This is just to assure he gets sold within 2 years.

    As someone who knows the Bundesliga well, do you rate him? How far he can go in your opinion?

    I'm hoping he's more Sterling than Coman/Martial.

    They should have signed Mane and Kane too.

    I've only seen him play those 10 mins at the Euros.

    Does he Dab?

    He's played 61 minutes in the Champions League. You must be talking about the EL.

    Oh, I rate him, his potential is immense, but this move is way too soon for him. The lad has basically one season as starter under his belt and his form curve looked more like a roller coaster than a clear line or curve. IMO this move has great potential to backfire for him quite badly.

    No don't think I am, didn't he have a cameo against Real where he changed the game and hit the post? Was mainly talking about that, probably phrased it a bit wrong :lol: If not it'll probably be the EL yes.

    Wait, so his name isn't pronounced like the word "sane"?

    Bloody foreigners, coming over here, confusing our commentators.

    Thanks for the response. At first Guardiola will probably use Nolito and Sterling on the wings regularly whilst Sane will have time to settle and push for one of the starting spots.

    Like i said before, I feel that this move comes way to early.
    One season as a starter (well I think he started like 20 times and came off the bench 10 times) for Schalke really isn't much at all and now - with that price tag - it'll be expected of him to have an immediate impact on a better and far more stacked team. Massive talent but we'll see. I love him tho, hope he does well.

    I'm pissed he's going to such a colourless team of mercenaries. kudos to city, it's a potentially brilliant transfer.

    It depends, could come in and tear it apart. I preidct he will adapt quickly and cement a place in the City starting eleven during the season. He has immense potential, Pep will love him.

    Looks nothing special from what I have seen and at a cost of £37m!

    Sad times ahead for football if that is the going rate for an average player nowadays

    He's only 20 years old... Can you really call him 'average'?

    He's a top talent, no doubt about it, whether he fufills that potential is a completely different issue. Many a player who has been touted as the dogs bollocks only to be forgotten in a few years through City. (Jack Rodwell)

    I know. Only that english 'nay'-sound is not very close to the original french pronunciation of 'né'.

    Rodwell was promising but injury prone at Everton.
    We needed talented English players at a reasonable cost due to FFP regulations so we took a chance on Rodwell who spent 2 seasons with us but was never fit so we sold him on for the same fee as we spent.
    Yeah we really ruined his career.

    For the money they are paying can't really say he looks anywhere near the price. Is he really better or can be better than what they already have?

    It really isn't. He was a player who was touted to be a future great and he did go through City, only to be forgotten. Don't see how you got City being the reason anywhere from that statement.
