Manchester City close in on £12m signing that could push them back into the top four race!

Sven’s City side have been struggling of late but battled back at the Stadium of Light to earn a well deserved three points. Many detractors have come out of the woodwork during this patchy period, clearly not true Blues fans of course who will have noted the drastic improvement this season after the tragic Stuart Pearce reign. It appears the Eriksson is getting closer and closer to a key signing that could be the answer to many of their attacking problems.

Creating chances has been one of the key problems for the Eastlands outfit, as well as of course the strikers to put away those chances, at times they have been too dependent on Martin Petrov who has gone off the boil in recent weeks. SWP would be an awesome re-signing and one that truly would show that City could challenge for a top four finish. How would Blues fans greet the return of their former hero?
