Statement made!

Summer has for the last few years been about big money signings at The Etihad Stadium as City built a side capable of challenging for major honours.  Indeed as last season ended with the Premier League title rumours were already rife as to whom City would sign.

City usually play their cards close to their chest regarding transfer business which means the media have to make up their own stories relying on agents for tip offs etc...  Indeed if you believed all the rumours City would have spent close to £200 Million already signing the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic Thiago Silva and RVP as well as a few others.

But todays contract news from the club is indeed probably better than any new transfer as it was announced club captain Vincent Kompany has signed a new 6 year deal.  Great news for fans and as he stated on twitter

Very pleased and honored to announce my new 6 year contract with MCFC! I am good here, best fans in the world! Ready for much more trophies!
 A tough tenacious centre half he has been the rock from which City's recent success has been based.  The fact he is only 26 whilst being one of the more senior pros at the club shows City to be a young side and that's something the wider media don't give much credit for. Indeed with few tweeks this City side could remain almost unchanged for 4 years and only 3 or 4 players would be over 30.

Added with the news earlier in the month manager Roberto Mancini has signed a new 5 year deal the statement made for the Premier League and Europe is crystal clear Manchester City are here to stay, the FA Cup and The Premier League were only the beginning the club have that taste of silver and want much more.
