Had to laugh when i saw this LOL

MANCHESTER CITY are preparing an astonishing £90 million deal to take defender Gerard Pique from Barcelona.

City gaffer Roberto Mancini has made the former Manchester United man his top target, and has asked his club to lavish £50m on the transfer with an extra £8m-a-year wages over five seasons.

Mancini has spoken to City midfielder Yaya Toure, who knows Pique well from their time together at the Nou Camp, and has been encouraged to make a move.

The World Cup-winning defender’s agent knows of City’s interest and Barcelona are aware a bid is being prepared.

But City face a tough battle. Pique, 23, is happy in Barcelona and said: “I have heard the rumour but my head is in Barca – and it’s not just a question of money.”

Pique's fairly improved, a few years ago Fergie gave him away for 6 million believing Johnny Evans would turn out a better player LOL

So will wenger sell fabregas to barca cos he thinks wilshere is the better player?

There was a lot more to that deal- who says Pique would be as good in a team that doesnt regularly have 70-80% possesion- pique could sit down in his own half and have a cup of tea in most games ffs
It took City 44 years to win the league and 10 months to lose it

dont see the relevance, but he probably will go next summer
i'd be pretty certain Wilshere will be a better player than Evans mind you

Neither pique nor johnny evans cost us anything

Made 6 million on pique who never settled properly in manchester

Who is to say pique would have the same impact in the premier league anyway- totally different type of football to la liga

Evans is 22- very few of the top centre backs around at the moment are below the age of 25- Evans will be a top defender in a few years time- the experiences of big games in the last season or two will all stand to him

Yaya Toure?
 
He was out of favour with Barca when he left. Buschets was preferred as their defensive midfielder. I think Touré played a game or two at centre half in his final season due to injuries and suspensions.
