Posted on | June 7, 2013 | No Comments

Losing the Premier League title into the city rivals favor and the Champions League disastrous campaign haven’t gone without consequences at Manchester City. The first victim was Roberto Mancini who was sacked by City’s board.

But that’s not all as the English giants have started the transfer campaign with two big signings in order to increase their chances of winning the title next season. According to betting odds Manchester United are still the favorites to win the Premier League next season. Until then you can check the daily naps for some horse racing tips.

Fernandinho signing came just a few days after Jesus Navas arrival. The Brazilian midfielder has cost City €40 millions and he signed a four years deal with the club.

It’s well known that City is used to pay more than other clubs to get the players they want but €40 millions is a big sum even for them. That’s why some of their fans have started to put questions about the transfer.

Fernandinho played only for Shakhtar Donetsk in Europe and that’s why he is a new figure for most of the fans. Also he has made only five appearances for Brazil squad due to the same reason. Even if Shakhtar dominated the Ukraine league in the last decade and they won the Uefa Cup in 2009, Fernandinho made himself noticed last year in Champions League group stages.

The Brazilian playmaker is one of the few top player who can play on both fronts, attack and defence. He is the type of player that is called “box to box” midfielder. His passing and long shots makes him a complete player and that’s why City wanted him so much.

On the other part we must say that Lucescu, the Shakhtar coach, did not wanted to let his star leave for less that 40 millions which was his release clause.

City will appoint a new coach soon and it is believed that Manuel Pellegrini will be announced in the following days.
