"My feeling is it will very hard for him to go".
"I am very, very happy to be joining Manchester City", he told his new club's official website.
Once he starts bullying defenders, as well as beating them for speed and skill, we'll be talking about a world-class player.
"I can say he is training better than before, he's working harder than before, it's a question to bring his talent more in a consistent way". "For me, I am 100 per cent he stays with us".
