It does seem that all the hard work achieved by outgoing Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is set to be undone this summer. Richard Dunne seems to be very near to leaving Eastlands and another of the Blues top performers
Richard Dunne and Michael Johnson are set to lead the player departures from Manchester City ahead of Sven Goran Eriksson’s imminent departure. Everton boss David Moyes is keen to beat Mersey rivals Liverpool to the signing of 20-year-old Johnson, who emerged last season as one of City’s most promising young players. Although City value Johnson at £10m, Everton do not want to pay more than £8m and a compromise is likely to be reached. (Daily Mirror)
For the past year Rafa has been chasing the impressive young midfielder but to no avail however alot has happened at Manchester City since the January transfer window and it does seem far more likely that a move is on the cards. Johnson was one of Sven’s most consistent performers last term so it’s no surprise he has become the target of many clubs, including it appears, both Merseyside rivals. Do Liverpool and Everton rate the youngster? And who is more likely to clinch his signature?
