Still got around 30 starts in all.

In terms of playing time he had roughly as much as Henderson had for us this season.

10th in terms of minutes played for city. Joint 6th on 'Rating'. Sterling and Silva ahead on both counts.

So 3rd best winger in the squad, but they guy is a beast and would be welcome in any squad.

Not in the sense of being a fringe player or a stand in.

Plays more than enough that they'd need to adequately replace him or they'd be weaker for it.

Yeah, he's not really kicked on.

Destined to become an "unfulfilled potential" type if he's not careful.

Weird eh.

He always looks really good when he plays, but there must be something. Attitude maybe (he was binned by the Germans last WC).

He’d be amazing in our system.

He’s supposed to be trouble and wasn’t picked in the Germany squad for the World Cup due to him being a potential disruption

23 years old, over 200 appearances and 50+ goals.
Played in 31 (majority starts) PL games in the most overloaded squad in football.
As many minutes last season as Liverpool’s captain.
2 league titles, plus 3 cups.

23 years old.

Yeah, needs to get his skates on.

No need for that.

City have got their dependable starters. Sterling, Aguero, Fernandinho, Silva etc etc.

Sane ain't one of them. He looked like he would get to that point a year ago but he's dropped off. He didn't make the world cup either.

If City wanted to keep him, there's no way they'd let him go.

I'm not one to argue with the likes of Klopp nor Pep.

So yeah.

Personally I don't think that's the case sure they could force him to stay against his will but that doesn't benefit anyone. If he's not a regular starter and wants to leave for more game time and they are going to get good money for him and he's not going to a rival club, I think those are acceptable terms whether they really want to sell or not.

Sane is an outstanding talent. You would say it 100% weakens them but i think we all know that they are going to sign a few more worldies in this window.

He's an explosive talent but is he a 90 minute player?

I'm not sure. There's certainly something not quite right and I wouldn't want us to spend £80m on him.

Jesus asking to leave now apparently. Less of a loss than Sane but was still dependable when he played.

They could easily get £120-140m for Sane & Jesus and then get more quality in. That's the annoying thing about it.

They could but there's only so much bench time a quality player can take.

How much do Bayern pay for players? I have in my head that the most they pay is £30-40m so will they pay £60m+ for Sane?

Think Bayern are bit more desperate these days and they look like they mean business this window with the signings they have already made.

They are already committed to:

Lucas Hernandez €75m
Benjamin Pavard €40m

Linked to:

Sane €80m
Werner €50m
Pepe €60m

They’ll only get one of those 3 and they may get Werner to wait until he is on a Boseman next summer. Havertz on their list for next summer also.

AP Sources: Man City asks court to block UEFA case

Manchester City has launched a legal challenge to block UEFA’s pursuit of a Champions League ban for violating soccer’s spending regulations, The Associated Press has learned.

The Premier League champions have asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport to throw out the case that has been passed by UEFA’s investigators to its judges, people with knowledge of the case told the AP. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the details of the ongoing investigation are confidential.

City is challenging UEFA’s right to send the Financial Fair Play case from the investigatory to adjudicatory chamber for a sanction to be imposed, the people said. The Abu Dhabi-owned club is claiming there is no case to answer, challenging the legitimacy and haste of the investigation.


City declined to comment when asked about taking the case to CAS but had previously said the referral to the judicial branch “ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City.”

The UEFA investigation was sparked by leaks of City’s internal correspondence and documents to German outlet Der Spiegel.

The leaks implied City deceived UEFA for several years, including by hiding that revenue from potentially overvalued commercial deals came from the club’s owners in Abu Dhabi to curb losses and comply with UEFA regulations that limit spending on transfers and wages. City hasn’t disputed the authenticity of the documents.

A separate person with knowledge of the case said City has provided conflicting answers to some questions to investigators before the case was sent to the UEFA chief judge Jose Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues of Portugal, who also sits at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

UEFA rules limiting cash injections from wealthy owners requires potentially overvalued sponsor deals linked to those owners to be made at a fair market rate.

The chief investigator in the case was Yves Leterme, a former prime minister of Belgium.

I don't understand how CAS can get involved now. UEFA have the right to set their own rules, and they haven't made a ruling yet, surely they have to make a ruling first the if City don't like it they can appeal to UEFA and then to CAS?

I dunno.......claim any punishment, such as a ban, could not only potentially cause loss of earnings for the club, associated organisations, sponsors, but also directly impact the players' worth, livelihood and potential earnings in the future etc

That's the kind of shit that could be twisted about and taken into account.
All because they (more than likely) essentially violated the rules set by a private sporting group for their private sporting competition.

Fuck em out for good if you ask me, and then the FA should be obligated to review City's parameters for meeting their own guidelines.
