Angelino a 'bargain' and is another deal imminent?

MEDIA WATCH: The press have reacted to the signing of Angelino

Reaction to the signing of Angelino and news of another reported deal nearing completion are the main City headlines this morning.

Let’s start with Angelino, who re-joined City yesterday having spent a year at PSV Eindhoven.

The Sun’s Joe Brophy says it’s a move that represents a “bargain” for City. 

“The Spain Under 21 international played every game for the Eredivisie outfit last season as they finished second behind Ajax,” he writes.

“His form attracted a host of European clubs, including Arsenal, in securing his signature but they faced having to stump up to £20m.

“But City swooped to resign their academy star on a four-year deal for a bargain cut-price fee.”

And are City on the brink of another deal? TalkSPORT say Atletico Madrid’s Rodri is set to sign.

Manchester City are set to sign Atletico Madrid’s Rodri after paying the player’s £62million release clause, the Spanish club have confirmed,” they write.

Former City midfielder Yaya Toure has signed for Chinese side Qingdao Huanghai.

After a somewhat truncated spell at Olympiakos, the 36-year-old is now ready for a new challenge in unfamiliar surroundings.

"Since the start of my career I have always loved challenges and now I will make history once again with Qingdao Huanghai,” he said.

"I can't wait to let my football do the magic once again."

Good luck, Yaya! 

And, finally, Jemima Skala, writing for Mixmag, has outlined the details behind our new Puma home and away kits.

Skala is impressed with Puma’s eye for detail and cultural knowledge, saying: “Puma is already earning its keep after locking in a £650 million ten-year kit deal with Manchester City, styling the English football champions’ away kit for the 2019/2020 season on iconic Madchester club The Haçienda.

“The strip features the dance institution’s signature diagonal black and yellow hazard chevrons, originally conceived as the interior design of the spot by Ben Kelly. The background of the photoshoot also depicts patterns similarly the Piet Mondrian-esque artwork for New Order's 2015 album 'Music Complete'

“The Haçienda was the epicentre of Manchester’s growing rave scene in the early 1980s, although it closed permanently in 1997 due to issues with drugs and gang violence. It is still Manchester’s most well-known and historically best-loved club, and last year was officially recognised by Historic England as one of the country’s most important sites.

“The home kit also pays tribute to a different part of Manchester’s cultural legacy, styled on the cotton factory looms that drove Manchester’s industrial revolution.”
