‘Something special about him’ – Man City fans name their ideal Kompany replacement on Twitter

The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping their side’s unbelievable run of form will continue into the New Year.

Manchester City continued their near-perfect run of form this season with a narrow 1-0 victory over Newcastle at St James’ Park earlier this week. Rafa Benitez’s side made City work hard for their 18th league win in succession, but in truth they never looked like taking anything away from their penultimate home match of 2017. Overall, it was an excellent evening for Guardiola’s City slickers, but there was one major setback that slightly tarnished their result.

On only his 9th appearance in City blue this season, Vincent Kompany was once again forced off through injury after just 11 minutes on Tyneside.

City’s captain and club legend has been incredibly unfortunate with injuries in recent years, much to the dismay of everybody involved with the club.

But given the circumstances, it is important that Guardiola adopts a pragmatic approach and begins searching for a central defender to eventually replace their Belgian skipper.

And according to The Daily Telegraph, Guardiola is lining up a January move for Jonny Evans or Inigo Martinez to bolster the clubs defensive options, and judging by the reaction on Twitter, it is the latter who the City fans would prefer to move to The Etihad.

Here’s what The Citizens had to say about the potential signing of Inigo Martinez on Twitter…
