    I sincerely hope we do not sell Alexis to City (preferably not at all). By doing so we are accepting that we are not on the same level as them. We no longer need the funds raised from player sales due to our increased sponsorships and TV revenues so selling will benefit on Man City for no real reason. If we are to sell, it has to be abroad but I believe we should retain Alexis for the upcoming season no matter what the implications are of that. If he leaves on a free in 2018 so be it.

    Spain sounds like the mob; shake people for their money for useless state programs.
