Yaya TourÃ has signed a one-year deal at Manchester City. The whose contract expired this month, began the season under a shadow following the manager omitted him fro m Cityâs Champions League squad. That sparked a rift with the midfielderâs agent Dimitri Seluk, who claimed TourÃ© was humiliated, which resulted in the manager insisting the Ivorian wouldn’t be included in just about any team until he apologised. Once the Premier League sign off the transfer of the goalkeeper from Benfica Ederson will become a City player. Edersonâs impending arrival means Joe Hartâs future in the club is almost certainly over. Hart spent on loan at Torino as well as the England goalkeeper is waiting to see what offers he receives before deciding where to play next season. The Manchester City chairman, Khaldoon al-Mubarak, has said Pep Guardiola will promote Phil Foden Jadon Sancho and Brahim DÃaz to the first team, following the manager questioned whether youth players face enough competition to develop in England. Mubarak said: In a normal circumstance ending the season with no trophy would be a very disappointing season but itâs not, it really isnât. The FA Cup or the League Cup is a disappointment while I’d say not winning the league and not being within close range of winning the title is a disappointment, not winning.
Sancho and the forwards DÃaz, who are the midfielder Foden and each were key members. TourÃ© returned to the side and smoothed things over to play an instrumental role in the 2nd half of the season.He’s one of our most experienced and popular players and we couldnât be happier that he’s staying with us as we embark on what all of US hope will be a very exciting season. This isn’t the ambition, not at all. Thereâs nothing to celebrate. And if not winning it, to go as close to winning the league as possible. We’re team now. And then to go in the Champions League. The season has been a disappointment but we’re going in a direction that’s positive, should you look at it from a different lens. TourÃ© has won six trophies, including an FA Cup and two Premier League titles, together with the club since joining from Barcelona. City have not produced a first- choice -team player in although the defender Tosin Adarabioyo did make three appearances under Guardiola last season since Micah Richards. Mubarak is clear the club are about to do naming Sancho DÃaz and Foden as three players. The chairman said: What makes it special this year is that we’ve four or three players we can believe have a great possibility of making it to the first team. You look at Phil Foden you look at Brahim DÃaz, you look at Sancho, just to name a few, these are players which are extremely talented. These are players who’ve a great possibility of making it to the first team.
Unlike any other league in the world you’ve eight or seven teams that are teams and top level neither match is easy and where you can play any team in this league home or away, neither match is a given three points. Pep has introduced a new way of playing for us, an exciting way however a way which requires a set of players and that requires work. If the Argentinian would remain at City asked, Mubarak said: Absolutely. There’s never been any doubt about that. Iâve read a lot about the speculation on this and itâs ridiculous. Sergio AgÃ¼ero is one of the best players on earth. And we’re a team that aspires to win in having Sergio AgÃ¼ero as part of the squad is an absolute must in every competition we compete. And it’s never been in doubt. Iâm delighted.
When I was coming here I was trying to be part of something special at this club, of a new story. I’m very lucky to be part of a great club with great players around me that are helping me to achieve my targets. City are hopeful of securing Benficaâs Ederson for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper. The Brazilian is in Manchester to take his medical in the club and though there are some third-party issues to address these aren’t expected to be an obstacle. Bravo endured a near-disastrous season using a series. And these are players that in the event you ask he’ll tell you, Pep today they can and will be first-team players at Manchester City. Pep spends lots of time. And that’s one of the great attributes that Iâve always loved in Pep and Iâve seen it in action. Iâve actually attended a few academy games this year where I’ve sat with him and seen how he knows every player, by name, he follows them, at multiple age groups. Because that’s that which we’re trying to build in terms of an ethos in this club and that’s great. AgÃ¼ero was dropped for the win at West Ham and Jesus preferred. Who joined for in January, was injured playing at Bournemouth soon AgÃ¼ero was reinstated. I want to win trophies, that’s very important to me. I want to enjoy it at this age and remaining here is a massive thing.
