You imagine the pressure he’d be under by rival fans/press if he came here with that price tag? We’ve already seen it with Pogba.
At City he’ll get away with loads of indifferent performances because no one cares really. Fake club.
So daft to want to leave when it's clear we are in the best position in years to push on and signing his international teammate. Can't he see that? Surely he could sign a new deal with a decent buyout incase he still wants to leave in a year or two? Just seems horrible timing on his part really.
