They would never accept that, £40mil plus Bravo .... maybe

Send whinger an edited DVD of bravos penalty saving exploits and try and force a deal. :idea:

On Harry Maguire.
I have a suspicion that Pep's secret plan is to 'coach-up' players for the England team - including this year's World Cup.
Without many people realising he has worked miracles with 4 such players so far.
If this is correct then Harry Maguire it is then!

We have to cut Maguire some slack , he has impressed since going to Leicester . to be fair to him.

However , although i thought he‘s had a good few games , recently Salah at scousepool turned him easily twice to score their goals. So he needs to work on it.

Well they say Pep sees things others don't. Maguire looks a bit of a Dunney to me. I'd be truly shocked

European Paper Talk: Man City manager Pep Guardiola wants Giorgio Chiellini or Samuel Umtiti

Pep Guardiola will not give up on trying to tempt Giorgio Chiellini to the Etihad. The Juventus defender is seen as an alternative to Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti, who is also a Manchester City transfer target. (Tuttosport)

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/ ... uel-umtiti


I could see how Chiellini would be an attractive proposition - heck I was hoping Mancini would have signed him all those years ago now - as he's a hard man, can play a bit and can slot in at centre back or left back.

However, he's 33 now and, if we did sign him, how many years in the PL would we get out of him ??

All round, it's a great shame as he's a great defender.

Dani Alves said Pep wanted him at City

I know there is a lot of paper Bollox but I believe Pep's interest In Alves was genuine. Reportedly he was furious he went to PSG.

Interesting to read some so against Maguire.

Why so much vitriol towards him?

He's a Pep-like defender and I've wondered if we'd end up hearing a story of us interested in him.

Could end up having the entire England back line, which wouldn't be the worst thing for England either.

I think he would look like a bull in a China shop at City. Even more special than Mangala.

City defenders having to play international games with the dross in front of them (Sterling apart), is the kind of thing you wouldn't even wish on your worst enemy Prez. ;) ;)

That doesn’t mean he’s a good player though mate. Just get Mee in and let’s stop all this ridiculous talk of Maguire or Evans!

Please please let the reports that we're in for Evans for 30m be complete rubbish.
He is not anywhere near good enough.
Can't think of a more displeasing underwhelming signing.

Pep has to see something if these rumors are actually true.

his record with signings since coming to City has been great, barring Nolito.
