Manchester City line up record breaking £25m move but does it make sense?

Sven Goran Eriksson has for some reason become a potential managerial casualty which seems to bare no relation to the fine work he has started at Eastlands. Now it appears that the Swede is planning a transfer record bid, but can it become a reality?

After being linked with just about every high profile player on the market, from Ronaldinho to David Villa, I guess it should have been expected that Alves would at some point be linked with a move to the blue half of Manchester. Not sure if this will become a reality, I don’t think the Sevilla player is worth that much anyway. What is key to Eriksson’s and City’s progress is that he keeps hold of his best talent and once this is secured then they can look to add to the squad with intelligent purchases such as Peter Crouch as clearly the area of major concern is up front. How do City fans feel Sven has done in his first season?
