Thomas Lewis' Career - Preseason - 2018/19 - Manchester City
A very busy transfer window, with us spending very heavily to reshape the squad. In my defence I did make almost half the amount we spent back in players sales, and in the process got some very high earners off the books. For example, Andriy Pyatov may have left on a free, (with a £1.6million pay off), but he was on £93,000 p/w, which would have equated to nearly £5million over the course of a year.
Also some transfers were arranged before I joined the club; Samir Nasri and Carlos Kameni's moves were already agreed, and Javier Mascherano had already decided to leave the club.
I would have maybe like to have kept him, because although he is nw 34, he is still in a great condition.
Looks an excellent young goalkeeper, and under the guidance of Joe Hart I'm sure he can improve further yet.
Looks very good for just 15 years old. He has four star potential so I have high hope for him.
The may who did so well for me at Swansea comes for a hefty price tag, but he really does look like he can be a real creative force for us. £20million of the fee is to be paid over 48 months.
New British transfer record, eclipsing the £44million City spent on Edison Cavani a couple of years ago. There is pressure on him, but I'm sure he will deliver. £24million of his fee is to be paid over 48 months.
A snip for £2.5million. Hopefully he can do the same job he did for me at Swansea - sit infront of the back four making interceltions and sweeping things up.
As with Allen, he's a real snip at £2.5million. He will be a squad player, but I have no doubts about his ability to step in and perform when needed.
An excellent looking player for the future. He comes with big wages for one so young, but I'm sure he will be worth it, now and in the future.
The third of my big money signings. He could give us a real spark going forward, joining up with Aguero, Cavani, and Neymar to basically give us a front four.
Another good young prospect, he looks like he could be equally adept in both midfield and defense. Some good tutoring is needed though.
Brought in to be third choice goalkeeper.
Renewed Squad List
As you can see we have alot more players in their twenties compard to when I took over. Aside from the defenders, the majority of the players are now younger than thirty, and there is a lot mre balance to it in terms of youth and experience. I will be happy to post any screenshots of regens you want to see.
Three morale boosting results, with my strikers getting goals, and the new signings blending nicely into the team. The big kickoff at home to Bolton looms.
