It began with breaking news of a takeover and talk of untold riches, rumbled forward with transfer speculation as remarkable as it was baffling and ended - sensationally - with a British record purchase of Robinho.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich were separated by tactics. "The chat was good, that's all". The ideology turned Pep Guardiola into the world's most coveted coach.

"Both of those got hamstring injuries at Liverpool so there's no mystery in that", he told Sky Sports.

Laporte made his debut in a pair of white boots but he might as well have been wearing slippers such was the lack of attacking threat from Alan Pardew's side who struggled to have a touch inside City's penalty box let alone a shot on goal. Fraud, claimed opposition fans.

"To play better than we played today is difficult but in knockout games, or cup finals, or Arsenal in the (League Cup) final, we need to be more clinical in front of goal or we will be in trouble".

The French defender has agreed a five year deal worth £150,000-a-week that will keep him at the Etihad until 2023.

The Frenchman was named in LaLiga's 2013/14 Team of the Year and in the 2015/16 campaign he helped Bilbao lift the Spanish Super Cup - their first piece of major silverware for 31 years.

Of course, City top the Premier League at the moment.

Naturally left-footed, Laporte will bring balance to the back line and provides a natural foil for John Stones, Nicolás Otamendi or Vincent Kompany.

Going from strength to strength, this guy is starting to show the form he had at Monaco.

Pep Guardiola is building an armoury of amazing young players at Man City. Just as significant, new goalkeeper Ederson has proved his worth with his pinpoint passing accuracy.

"Tos has to play", Guardiola said. Despite the 4-3 loss to Liverpool, defensive mishaps have mostly been consigned to the past.

It eclipses City's record £55m deal for Kevin De Bruyne and takes Guardiola's spending to £413m in 19 months.

"Defenders do this more than ever before", Laporte said in an interview with FourFourTwo magazine.

As expected, Aymeric Laporte is now a Manchester City defender.
