One more Man City signing, says Soriano
Ferran Soriano has revealed Premier League champions Manchester City intend to make one more summer signing, following the captures of Fernando, Willy Caballero and Bacary Sagna, ESPN has reported.
The City chief executive added that the positions the club intended to strengthen were decided not at the end of the season, but some time back. “We don't plan season by season, we plan in cycles,” he said. “We knew one year ago the positions we wanted to reinforce in the team and we did it.
“We have a new right-back, a new holding midfielder and we will have a new central defender and that's it,” Soriano continued. “We don't need to sign new players for the sake of it. We need to sign the players that the team needs because the team has a balance.
“To win you need to keep the balance. Our squad is very strong and it's the second year they play coached by Manuel Pellegrini so they'll do much better.”
Eliaquim Mangala is expected to be the centre-back signed by City after a video of the France international undergoing a medical with City was released online by an unknown party. The Porto defender was part of Les Bleus’ squad at the World Cup but didn’t make an appearance.
