Man City have had an active enough transfer window so far, and a whole host of other names are being linked with moves to the Etihad ahead of the new Premier League season.
Pep Guardiola acted quickly to bring in a new goalkeeper, and has also snapped up winger Bernardo Silva from high flying Monaco. However, there are problems at the back for City, who have an ageing defence and players like Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna leaving the club.
This will no doubt be addressed though, and the City fans appear confident that ‘Pep’ will add the right names between now and August.
Our landlord here in the Tavern though thinks even more attacking flair could see City challenge for the Champions League, and one player he thinks the club could make a move for is Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa.
The Brazilian midfielder is one of the trickiest wide players in world football, and some of his displays in Munich over the last two years have been nothing short of mesmerising.
City have an abundance of attacking talent and pace already, with the likes of Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling to name but two, but Costa would add some real world class ability to the line up in Manchester.
Costa can beat any defender in world football on his day, and his ability to create from nothing makes him stand out on plenty of occasions. If City could pull off a big transfer for the Munich man, then it would certainly send a message to the rest of the Premier League.
