City Summary – September 2: Kompany knock, La Liga want City investigated, Napoli hope for City favour

It’s time to catch up on today’s news – here’s your City Summary:

Let’s start with an anniversary. A decade ago today, the great Pep Guardiola began life as a coach with his first official game as Barcelona B boss.

Tired of the Alexis Sanchez stories? Fear not, an even more long-running transfer rumour could be about to return, with Lionel Messi putting off renewing his Barcelona contract. City would love to pounce if given encouragement…

Hopefully this is nothing much, but Vincent Kompany is a doubt for Belgium’s game against Greece because of a knock. As long as the words “hamstring” and “calf” aren’t mentioned, we can probably relax.

Enraged by a French club having the audacity to sign one of their stars, La Liga have asked UEFA to investigate both PSG and Manchester City about the source of their revenues. UEFA are investigating PSG and have said so, but there is no proof City are being looked at right now.

A Manchester club, which narrows it down to Manchester City or Manchester City under-23s (just kidding), had a €65million bid rejected for Napoli ace Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer window. But was it City or United?

In other Napoli news, they are hoping City do them a favour next summer by buying back Geró Rulli then selling him to Naples for a profit, to avoid his €40million release clause at Real Sociedad. How about some quid pro quo?

Remember that “Ghanaian Neymar” City apparently signed recently? Despite being pictured in City training gear, WAFA SC say teenage wonderkid Aminu Mohammed has not joined Manchester City or any other club.

That’s it for today. Keep your eyes peeled on @City_Watch and the site, day and night, as we work to deliver the latest City news, views, and other high-quality content.
