English Premiership

Man City's transfers rated

2015-09-02 13:56

Cape Town - Manchester City had ample resources with which to fight for the Premier League title and somehow improved on them during the transfer window.

Manchester City's transfers rated: 8.5/10

City needed very few imports this transfer window (if any) but by signing Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne, the Citizens have turned themselves into serious Champions League contenders.

Transfer summary:

In: Enes Unal (Bursaspor, £2m), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool, £49m), Patrick Roberts (Fulham, undisclosed), Fabian Delph (Aston Villa, £8m), Nicolas Otamendi (Valencia, £32.12m), Kevin De Bruyne (Wolfsburg, £55m)

Out: Scott Sinclair (Aston Villa, £2.5m), Matija Nastasic (Schalke, undisclosed), Dedryck Boyata (Celtic, undisclosed), Micah Richards (Aston Villa, free), James Milner (Liverpool, free), John Guidetti (released), Enes Unal (Genk, loan), Stevan Jovetic (Inter Milan, undisclosed), Eden Dzeko (Roma, loan)

Best bit of business: While the deal for Sterling may very well be over-priced, the acquisition of the England international will ensure City are a better side than they were last season.

Worst bit of business: It's between spending big on Otamendi when Mangala was already there or allowing Eden Dzeko to leave the club - he's proved himself to be a capable backup striker.
