Waiting for Javi. We might have to wait a little longer for proper confirmation. Sky sports news dramatically closed the transfer window with a huge graphic of a vault slamming shut. Jim White was unforgettable today as was Ms Sawyer in that dress.
There was no actual confirmation that the £16m transfer of javi Garcia had actually gone through. Twitter has blown up amid rumours that Javi is already a Man City. Until I see a credible source confirming that Javi Garcia is a Man City I won't report it.
We would have to imagine that a club as professional as Man City now are, that a failure to close a transfer fee over a monetary haggle or a failure to register the relevant documents would be longer possible.
I'd expect the player to sign.
It was reported the player is in Manchester and has had a medical. We are surely only waiting for the formalities.
