It’s being reported in the press that Manchester City and manager Manuel Pellegrini are on the verge of formally offering skipper Vincent Kompany a £65million contract.

It’s said the deal would be worth, financially, £200,000 a week and tie our captain to a contract until the summer of 2020, and if it proves to be true it would certainly be a statement and most likely see our 28 year old defender end his career with us at the Etihad Stadium as clearly it would more than set him up for life, although arguably a six year deal keeping him with us until he’s 34 years old wouldn’t preclude a longer deal or another move for him as few hang their boots up thesedays that early.

The reaction from pundits is probably best described as ‘guarded’ with issues being raised about consistency and complacency creeping in subconsciously with such a lengthy term of contract, despite any players best efforts to avoid that, but it would give rise to a thought about a ‘comfort zone’ for anybody who knew the next six years of their life were sorted.

The fans have certainly reacted well to the news, describing the sum involved for such an important player as being of no consequence.

As said, it would certainly be a statement from the club and a reward for his form and performances for us so far, so it’ll be interesting to see if it turns out to be true.

This site would like your blogs, so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports Man City we would love to share it with the masses!
