Why? getting a £35m defender in on loan is hardly disastrous.
He was always ridiculously overpriced and I think they actually paid nearer to £42m.
I live in Manchester and always took the piss out of my City supporting mates that he wouldn't even get in our side, despite his cost. I think he's technically and positionally poor and a hoofer.
The 'disaster' is that he would probably come in and be our best defender now, even though there's been hardly any visible improvement in his game since he's come to England.
