Oh God please let that sale go through.

The City transfers remind me of how I play Football Manager. I'll give Villa a transfer budget of three billion, and try to buy everyone, have clubs agree to terms, then have every player shoot down a contract because the club isn't big enough (don't hate my Keith, it's the game, not me). The De Jong or whoever story is hilarious, unbelievable they cost themselves 10 million pounds by being impatient.
