Manchester City supporters in the Transfer Tavern are encouraged by their team’s character while rescuing a point against Everton.
The Citizens were almost defeated by Everton’s Ronald Koeman before the former Liverpool player, Raheem Sterling, saved a point in dramatic circumstances.
While Guardiola flaunts a cherished wealth of attacking options, the area in which doubts have been raised is in defence. According to reports in the press, Guardiola is pursuing former Manchester United defender and West Brom captain, Jonny Evans.
While our landlord acknowledges that the Northern Ireland captain boasts considerable experience and has proven his worth in the Premier League over a consistent period, our landlord believes that City should target a younger, and perhaps, superior option.
Bayer Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah – valued at £19.80m by Transfermarkt – has established his status as one of the most exciting defensive prospects in Germany.
At the age of 21, his potential is substantial, and under the guidance of a manager such as Guardiola, Tah could develop into one of the finest defensive talents in world football.
The German defender is cited for his tremendous intercepting ability, and stylistically, he’s similar to John Stones with his tendency to dribble with the ball. He’s also a proficient passer of the ball which would entwine agreeably with the style of play that Guardiola is hoping to institute at Man City.

While it might be costly to entice the German defender to the Etihad this summer, our landlord believes that Tah’s abilities warrant a high transfer fee. With eight days remaining in the window, City must act promptly.
