Jorginho

If Jorginho really wanted to join City like some unknowns are saying, then he would have. City wanting a player and the player wanting City = they get him. Additional €10m or so is irrelevant to City, if they are unwilling to match the bid then one or the other is not interested enough.

I'm suprised no pictures of him arriving at the airport have surfaced. Surely some people must have been waiting to spot him? When the Morata transfer broke people shoved a mic in his face almost instantly.

Thanks for this. I have always rated you as a very sensible poster here. :)

Looks like man city just wanna get the point across that he would have preferred them but Napoli pushed him to us.

Wonder who the backup option is if he does end up choosing City after all. At this point Seri would be pretty damn underwhelming. Plus, there's a reason no other big club has snapped him up yet.

Kovacic and Pjanic are pipe dreams.

Already getting tired of this "Every City target should join them for Pep and the style of play, otherwise they are money grabbing whores". Fuck off you City twats, already a decade of pumping money into that team and you still haven't reached a Champions League semifinal yet.

They have actually..in 2015/16.

City's PR machine firing from all cylinders ATM. Remember Dani Alves last summer, Fred a few weeks ago etc.

They are now creating this "money over Pep" thing when the only reason they are a relevant club is actually THE MONEY.

Napoli's boss said he struck a deal with City two weeks ago. So why hasn't Jorginho signed with City then? What was the hold up if indeed he wanted the move so bad as per the City journos? It's clear for me he was waiting for Sarri all along otherwise he'd have been a City player by now. 

Already getting tired of this "Every City target should join them for Pep and the style of play, otherwise they are money grabbing whores". Fuck off you City twats, already a decade of pumping money into that team and you still haven't reached a Champions League semifinal yet.

They have very short memories.

Silva, Aguero, Robinho, Kolorov, Kompany, the list goes on and on.  

Are they suggesting that Mahrez wants to give up first team football because he loves the idea of training with Pep and living his dream of competing in the League Cup?  Maybe he moved for the pay?  

Even Real Madrid don't get everything they want (just most of the time).

Stability vs Instability.

Increasingly popular club vs One of the most unpopular clubs in world football.

Reputation, deserved or not, for attractive football vs Reputation, deserved or not, for unappealing, unattractive football.

Most highly regarded manager in the world vs Complete uncertainty.

A club generally thought to be on the up vs A club widely thought to be in decline.

Examples: -

Monaco revealed that Mendy told them he would not have left for Chelsea but that he could not resist Pep & City

Danilio revealed that he had been offered a better deal by Chelsea but chose City anyway despite Chelsea also being the team more likely to use him as a starter.

Antonio confirmed that he wanted Walker but that the player was only interested in City.

Stones talked about how glad he was that the move to Chelsea fell through.

The comment I made is, I fear, a rather obvious statement of fact.

This is why we have no chance of signing Jorginho. Statement of fact.

Anyway, what's really funny is that there are posters over on Bluemoon who are criticizing the deal saying that he's only gone for the money.  What short memories some people have.  The irony is up there with Maradona calling England dirty cheats.

Honestly, having been over 10 years on this forum, we are not any different in this regard. Many fans are hypocritical with this money talk. I have done the same - slating richer clubs and greedy players, but the truth is we ourselves would be nowhere near where we are without Roman's money.

Jorginho was even more of a pipe dream... until yesterday.

I'm confused according to some reports city are still in the race for Jorginho 🙁🙁🙁

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/man-city-jorginho-transfer-14895092.amp

All we have heard so far is Man City believing Jorginho want them and not us. If that's the case, then why not go back in and outbid us? Unless they do so, it will be a case of them just trying to save face, like what others have suggested.

I don't disagree.  There's a direct correlation between wages and league positions.

Money always talks, especially when it comes to employment.
