Am I right in thinking that Angelino, Rodri, and Cancelo are our last 3 transfers? One is already off, one is completely out of favor for whatever reason, and the other looks completely out of place in the league and this side. Yes, it's the first season for both Cancelo and Rodri so it's likely way too early to make any conclusions on the pair right now but it doesn't look good. Whats going on with player recruitment recently?

Someone like Wilf Ndidi at Leicester wouldve been a way better buy than Rodri—and cheaper.

Cheaper is arguable but we do seem to go and risk take with players outside of the prem at a high cost

Who was our last import from the premier league? Walker?

And yet Rodri could end up winning the treble and Ndidi nothing. There is alot less pressure playing for Leicester than City. Its always a gamble buying new players however you look at it

If Sanè is only on £90k compared to the others, no wonder he’s off!

Negotiations seized so nothing will change there and also I cannot believe Sergio isn't our top earner !

There's plenty of inequity on that list.

Jack Harrison, who's out on loan at Leeds, earns 160% of Phil's wages.

Not to mention players like Stones, Mendy and Bravo:

The biggest disgrace is Otter doesn’t earn as much as much as KDB.

Ndidi definitely wouldve been cheaper last summer than Rodri

But he hasn’t taken it though has he

Plus I reckon these figures won’t be truly accurate. Wouldn’t surprise me if they included bonuses and image rights
