We're close to adding Maicon, promising defender Nastasic, and possibly Javi Garcia tomorrow. If those go through, Maicon will probably rotate with Richards and Zabaleta at the RB and he'll see some time as a wingback in Mancini's 3-5-2 formation. Garcia would replace Gareth Barry. Great positional signings if true since we'll need all the help we can get to beat Dortmund.

Levy gonna pay 27M for Moutinho . It seems Levy isn't such tough negotiator
Well Lyon president didn't really have nice words for Levy:
"We have had people speaking all night with Daniel Levy. He talks a lot and goes back on what we've agreed in writing.
"The things as they were at 5am were not the same at 10am. I think we have to make sure we get a certain amount of value because it's important that Hugo can go to a quality club that allows him to do himself justice from a value point of view, so that he can feel right about it.
"At the moment we're talking about whether he can come back to say his goodbyes to the supporters, to his team-mates, so we can honour him, this truly great player and brilliant man. I would put it at 50-50 that Hugo goes to Tottenham. Although from the outset we've submitted to agreements I would now put it at 50-50 that he'll be going there.
"Agreements have not at all been respected. We've done what we can. Hugo has been troubled by the difficulty in these negotiations."
