Report: Manchester City Closing in on Dani Alves Signing

The Brazilian full-back may be on his way out of Turin with Manchester in his sights. Manchester City look to continue their summer spending spree by adding heavily at the full-back spot. With the departures of Gaël Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta plus the expected loan of Pablo Maffeo, the only full-back in the squad at this point is Aleksandar Kolarov, who has played more centrally in defense under Pep Guardiola. City supporters have heard the names since the season ended: Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker seem to be the top targets for Guardiola, but Ryan Bertrand from...

Yaya Touré's contract extension more than just honoring a Manchester City legend

Yaya still has football left, and Pep Guardiola wants him around You probably know by now that Yaya Touré has signed a new one-year contract and will remain a Manchester City player next season. The Ivorian was the only player with an expiring deal this summer to be offered an extension, and that's a big statement from Pep Guardiola. Pablo Zabaleta is a club legend, Willy Caballero has done a solid job as a backup keeper, and Jesús Navas enjoyed a rebirth as a full-back. Any of those three had good reasons to stick around, but the truth is they just aren't good enough to be part of the...

Manchester City confirm John Stones new kit number for next season

Taking Zaba's shirt! A post shared by Manchester City (@mancity) on May 30, 2017 at 12:48pm PDT The summer rebuild continues at Manchester City, and that means even the numbers are changing. For instance, we already know that Bernardo Silva will take the number 20 shirt next season, and now we've learned that John Stones will wear Pablo Zabaleta's #5 shirt from now on. Stones was signed last summer and wore number 24 throughout the season, but he was #5 in his Everton days and that's clearly his favorite shirt. That is Zabaleta's number, though, so you'd better wear it proudly,...

Independent: Manchester City “confident” of signing Tottenham’s Kyle Walker

Maybe start composing that tearful farewell tweet. The rumors linking Kyle Walker with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur are not letting up. Despite Walker traveling with Spurs to Hong Kong for their post-season friendly match today (and starting the match!), most observers are expecting that Walker will leave Spurs this summer for another club. That club looks more and more likely to be Manchester City. Today, City dumped Pablo Zabaleta off to West Ham on a free transfer and signed Monaco AMF Bernardo Silva for €60m, and now the Independent say that City are “confident” that the...
