City complete triple swoop on Fulham


Higuain departs as City make triple swoop on Fulham

One of three new Manchester city signings Hulk

Manchester City have once again hit the media headlines for their transfer dealings with the news that Argentine international striker Gonzalo Higuain has left the club along with Ishak Balfodil and Alvaro Vadillo with all three players joining division 1 title hopefuls Fulham in a deal that See's three players leaving Craven Cottage for the Etihad with Brazilian international striker Hulk being the most talked about. Joining Hulk at City are Spanish hot prospect Iker Munian and German defencive player Stefan Reinartz and all three players go straight into the squad for tonight's game against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

After Higuian handed the club a formal transfer request last week City manager Steve Thompson had been in intense negotiations with a number of clubs but after a succession of rejected bids Fulham finally secured the deal that puts them amongst the elite in division 1 while City secure three players that certainly make their first team squad even competitive for the tough season ahead.

Thompson was delighted to welcome his new recruits .....

"It's been a tough week or so of negotiations but i am very happy with the deal we managed to get done. Gonzalo has served the club very well but he wants to play at the top level and he has that chance under Dom at Fulham, we welcome another 3 top class players into the fold and our squad is now certainly one of the strongest around. 

Have have covered all bases with these signings and the boys may get their chance against Norwich at Carrow Road tonight"
