They baulked at the price for Van Dijk too. It just shows, even the bottomless man City money pit doesn't just pay the asking price. They decide what a player is worth and dont go above that valueI watched The Atletico Madrid/Savilla game the other night and I still can’t understand how Manchester City balked at paying the asking price for Jules Koundé, I know everybody thinks that Diaz is having a good season but I really think that when City are playing well their CB’s don’t get exposed so much, Stones is also looking pretty great again this year.
I think Kounde’s ceiling is higher and has more to his all round game. Quicker, lighter on his feet, more comfortable on the ball.
Really liking Kounde a lot.
