City Transfers Summer 2015

Bought:
1. Enes Unal - 2m
2. Raheem Sterling - 44m + 5m add ons
3. Fabian Delph - 8m
4. Patrick Roberts (having a medical now, so hopefully) - 4-5m + 4-5m add-ons

Sold:
1. Negredo - 23.8m

What do you think?

I'm well pleased with Sterling. Expensive, but he ticks every box for what we were looking for in a signing this summer. Young, homegrown, direct, able to improve the team immediately, and the potential to become world class in the future.

I like Delph and for 8m, you can't really go wrong. Even if it doesn't work out, we're not going to lose money. But I think he'll be a solid performer for us. I don't believe the people who claim he'll spend most of the season on the bench. He's certainly an upgrade on Fernando who got plenty of game time last season.

The other two look like two of the best 18 year-olds in their respective positions at the moment (for what that's worth). The sort of signings we should be making to avoid having to pay ridiculous prices later on. Obviously we won't know if they're worth it for a long time yet, but like Delph, the prices are low enough that it's fairly low risk. Roberts sounds expensive, but if he's not successful, it's only 5m, and he'll still almost certainly be good enough to be able to sell him on for roughly what we paid, with the price of English players nowadays.

I think the main issue was the 20% sell on clause to QPR. Liverpool might have been happy to sell him for 35m if they were getting all of that money.
