£16 million fee agreed
. @Wolves have agreed a £16m deal with @ManCity for left wing back Olegsandr Zinchenko. A fee of an initial £12m rising to £16m with add-ons is in place between the clubs.
From Tim Nash...
That is a statement if true - good player.
12m rising to 16m
is he any good says the missus
We going to be using him as a left wing back?
Honestly expected us to go for Telles tbh.
Is he the one who looks like De Bruyne? Think he played against us in the cup, supposed to be really good.
What position we think?
Signed by City as a midfielder but moved to LB under Guardiola.
Truly awful against us in the Carabao Cup in that position but according to Nash he will be a LWB.
Wow. Good signing if Nash is on the money.
Thelwell just loves a windup (or does he ?)
That's the one. CM and LWB
Goal report the Ukraine international Zinchenko could leave City this summer.
It is claimed that City have already received offers between £10million and £20million for the left-back this summer but a sale isn't close to completion.
Zinchenko has admitted he doesn't enjoy the lifestyle in Manchester.
"The best football in the world is played here", Zinchenko told Championat.
"But the English way of life is, to put it mildly, not my thing.
"The people here are more miserable than in the Netherlands, but that is understandable: the air is always grey and it is constantly raining. They sometimes break things that we would not even smile about."

So much for no more signing eh?
This is just the beginning me thinks.
So Douglas, Vinagre and Zinchenko!....
“Most our business is done”

I thought he looked uncomfortable at Eastlands last season. There's definitely something there though.
I thought he was quite poor against us in the Cup game but have been impressed the other times I’ve seen him.
Fits the profile of Wolves signings.
He was probably right...they just hadn't announced them all
Good signing if true
Hmmm a strange one as we have a very similar player in Vinagre.
Gonna look banging on the back of the shirt! if they've got 3 left backs with such quality, they WILL strengthen at right back.
I think he has potential, but I've never felt he's stood out for Man City when given the chance. Seemed more of a passenger, not willing to take risks just plays it backwards. Technically clearly has ability and with Nuno's help he could turn him into a top wingback, but given his comments about Manchester weather I think he'll need some convincing!
Sign him, loan out Vinagre to a championship side. Perfect.
Think Vinagre will do a Bale and end up playing more attacking.
Can’t imagine he will be playing LWB for us. Competing with Jota/Costa/Cav
I don't know which is the best zinchenko thread
Or replacing Cav?
Spiers now reporting it too but saying it’s not done.
Also saying Nuno wants a new CM to partner Neves with Saiss dropping back into the back three.
Internet says he is more a CM / No. 10 but played LB because of Mendes injury. He was LB against Wolves but that was his first time playing in that position.
Nash also says...
Nuno also wants a new central midfield partner for Ruben Neves, with Romain Saiss expected to switch to the back as one of three central defenders, which he where he plays for Morocco.
I think that too.
Potential Cav replacement...
He'd never been a LB before Guardiola took over.
Do you not understand the word “most”?
Fair point. Seemed like he only ended up playing there because of injuries to Mendy/Delph and the fact he is left footed
Nash first again with the news
Thought he played in a four with Morroco ?
My worries for Coady were correct then !
Like the sound of that. Brings flexibility to the squad as well, knowing that Saiss can partner Neves if needed.
A pal of mine is City home and away.
Said he is very useful. “Quick and skilfully”.
That will do for me.
Pretty much exactly the same time as Spiers. Only difference is Spiers had to write an article instead of just tweeting.
What's that got to do with Coady? Surely it would be Saiss-Coady-Boly.
Zinchenko !!! He’s ****ing mint. Woo hoo
Seems a lot for a player who hardly features for City and cost then a tenth of what we are rumoured to be spending on him.
Zinchenko sold to Wolves?
