Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are smiling today and it is all down to the Mail on Sunday.
The publication seem to think that the Citizens are set to offer four new deals to key players before the season begins and the defence of their title gets going.
The lucky players in question are Sergio Aguero, who is set to sign a contract worth £50 million, Edin Dzeko – who became vital to the side last season despite rumours of a move away – not to mention Joe Hart and James Milner.
Now as one of our punters notes, we thought Milner could be on his way out of the club but City manager Manuel Pellegrini is determined to keep the midfielder at he club.
The Chilean tactician knows that he needs to be offered a bumper new deal to do this – or at worst, to stop him leaving on a free this time next season.
As one of our punters notes, this will be a huge season for City, who will want to defend their title and also get out of their group again in the Champions League.
Having the futures of their star players sorted out for good may go a long way to keeping squad harmony in the dressing room.
City fans. Is this a good way to start the defence of your title? Let us know your thoughts below.
