Be up to near on £50m in sales if it goes through. If we manage to offload a couple of others we may get close to £90/100m. Be a low net spend compared to our rivals. Now, about that pesky FFP........

It makes it more likely, not sure about definate. We have two top strikers and a whole host of 'good' options at striker/false nine already. Maybe he can bring Bellerin with him if he comes though.

Agree. Nacho had a hard time getting into the team anyway, so seems difficult to see selling him means we are in for Alexis.

Yet, it does give us more cash to spend, and yes, another potential striker spot, but Alexis will likely feature on the left anyway, and Nacho is also being sold because we have Jesus, who is a better player at this point, and looks like more likely to be even better.

I don't think Alexis is coming, if he does, until near the end of close season.

With Delph and Nacho seemingly on their way out.

I think Walker was lined up weeks ago for one. Never know though, with Levy.

Walker and Bertrand.

We don't have to fill it anyway, we could go with a squad of 19 senior players supplemented by youth.

Tis true. All the fuss about that in years past. And i don't think we ever use more than about 20 + kids

It's 17 + 4 + 4, plus youth who meet the criteria for the B List. Jesus would take up a full place, from what I understand.

In our 4 + 4, we have Stones and Sterling so far, so we've got 6 places going unfilled (four of which are reserved for players who spent at least 3 years with us between the ages of 15 and 21).

Yeah that's what seems like the plan.

I'm also pretty sure Nacho is not considered any kind of HG player that helps with the right number of HG players. It's more like he doesn't take a space for someone else. I think he's on the "B" Under 21 list, for England aka doesn't have to be registered. Or am I wrong?

He went on the "B" (under 21/don't have to be registered) list for the CL squad in January (as I recall) so we were able to register Jesus and not have to worry about unregistering Nacho, and/or Yaya or whoever had to be left out. That all blew up to bits anyway when Gundogan was out for the season and then Jesus got injured days before we played Monaco in February, because otherwise I believe someone (seemed like Yaya early in the season) would have been left out of the squad list for the CL knockout phase.

Nacho qualifies for the U21 B List for the time being, but after this season he won't qualify for that. I think, on paper at least, he's been with us long enough to qualify as club trained once he turns 21, but then there's the issue with his work permits, etc., which might negatively impact on his eligibility...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... z4lu1UzwEv


So much for Bony wanting to stay at City and fight for his place. ;)


Well he might want to, but they probably told him to fuck off.

Meanwhile I see Ruben Sobrino is off (was he ever here?)

:http://www.mcfcwatch.com/2017/07/06/manchester-city-continue-shrewd-sales-with-spanish-attacker-to-join-alaves-for-1-75m/

Manchester City will break the £20million mark in sales of players not even close to the first team by selling 25-year-old Spanish forward Rubén Sobrino to Deportivo Alavés.

Alavés have decided to use their option to buy the former Real Madrid academy player for €2million (£1.75million) after a one-year loan spell during which he scored 3 goals in 16 appearances.

Sobrino’s expected sale to Alavés is another sign of City’s maturation as a selling club following years of struggling to sell players for profit and often having to subsidise deals. Enes Ünal joined Villarreal for £12million earlier this summer and Aaron Mooy made his loan move to Huddersfield permanent in a deal that could rise to £10million.

Sobrino will move for a smaller fee of around £1.75million, but one that represents a profit on the £200,000 that City invested to sign him from Ponferradina in 2015. He was initially loaned to partner club Girona to help their push for promotion to La Liga in 2015-16, but after that failed he moved up a league by joining Alavés.

Bigger challenges await City in offloading players in this transfer window, with the likes of Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala, Fernando, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony up for sale, but tougher to sell because of their high salaries.

Nice to see us raising a bit of loose change. Makes a change from what has gone on in the past. But the last paragraph will be a true test for the boys in the ivory tower. If we get £75m for that group we will have done well.

Another few quid in the kitty. We have been awarded up to £1.75m at a tribunal for Tyrese Campbell, who is Kevin Campbell's son and who left us to join Stoke last year. It's £750k up front and £100k when he plays 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 games and a further £500k if he ever wins an International cap
