Vital Manchester City new signing, watmoughst sent us the following article.
Manchester City aren’t one to go quiet, and once again this weekend they have been linked with numerous players but the one that stands out is their new £25 million pursuit for Brazilian ace Diego.
With Manchester City’s failed attempt to sign Kaka it is thought that Mark Hughes will turn to fellow Brazilian Diego. But with a wage demand off £180,000 per-week the question is, are Manchester City desperate to bolster their attacking options, or are they desperate to keep golden boy Robinho happy?
Once again it is speculated that the pursuit may have been influenced by Manchester City’s Robinho, who was also keen for the club to sign Kaka. Recently though it appears Mark Hughes is trying to do everything he can possibly do to keep Robinho happy after he recently stormed out of a training camp in Tenerife.
But if Hughes thinks he will have no trouble with Robinho’s fellow countryman Diego then he will be far from correct as Diego is currently serving a four-match ban for allegedly attempting to strangle a Karlsruhe opponent.
This isn’t the only trouble Diego has been involved in recently as the midfielder defied Werder Bremen by playing for Brazil at the Olympics in Beijing last summer, and then upset the national side by turning up late for training. He was also stopped for an alleged drink-driving offence only a few days ago.
So the question for all City fans is, would signing Diego be a good move or would it just bring further disruption to the Manchester City dressing room?
Many thanks go out to watmoughst.
