The Manchester City supporters here in the Transfer Tavern breathed a huge sigh of relief on Tuesday evening, when Manchester United’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham United ensured the vital fourth place finish was still in their hands, going into the last day of the season.
The Citizens will welcome Pep Guardiola to the Etihad Stadium during the summer and he will have a big task on his hands to rebuild a squad which is capable of challenging for the title.
Our landlord has spotted an article in today’s edition of The Express via Marca, that claims City hold an interest in signing Real Madrid central midfielder Toni Kroos during the summer months.
Madrid could be tempted to offload the Germany international during the summer and City are reportedly desperate to bring him over to the Premier League.
One City fan is chatting to the landlord and he thinks that all the talk of global superstars coming to the club could be irrelevant this weekend, if City do not secure themselves the fourth and final Champions League spot.
Manchester City fans, would you welcome Kroos? Where would he be played in the side? What impact would he have on the Premier League?
