So since yesterday..

We loaned on Lansbury and Campbell.

Sold Traore.

Bought Ju Y Park, Per(fect) Merte, Andre Santos and almost Arteta (I hear only paperwork is left).

Got Yossi Benayoun on a season long loan..

Now we look like we mean business!!

Lets see how non-EPL signings fare.. I feel Mertesacker is what we needed the most!

MAN CITY COMPLETES SIGNING OF CANADIAN MIDFIELDER HARGREAVES

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City made Owen Hargreaves the most unexpected signing of the summer transfer window when the injury-plagued midfielder joined on a one-year deal.

The Canadian-born Hargreaves was released by English champion Manchester United at the end of last season after failing to complete a match in three years because of knee, shoulder and hamstring trouble.

However, the 30-year-old former England midfielder has proved his fitness to City, where he will likely be a backup to Netherlands international Nigel de Jong in the big-spending club's star-studded squad.

Hargreaves, who was born in Calgary, is City manager Roberto Mancini's sixth summer signing -- and could be a shrewd one if he manages to avoid any more injuries that have derailed a career that peaked during the 2006 World Cup when he was arguably England's best performer in Germany.

A year later, he was signed by United from German giants Bayern Munich and ended his first season at Old Trafford by winning the Premier League-Champions League double.

His fortunes have since plummeted. Having failed to find a club for the start of the season, Hargreaves resorted to posting videos on YouTube showing himself working in a gym and running to prove his fitness.

In a statement announcing the free-transfer signing, City acknowledged "injury has taken its toll" on Hargreaves' career. But the club was still prepared to take a gamble on the player, signing him to a short contract.

Hargreaves, capped 42 times by England, joins a club that is second in the Premier League on goal difference behind United, having won its first three games.

City will also be playing in the Champions League this season, with Bayern one of its opponents in Group A.

Mancini has also signed Argentina striker Sergio Aguero and Arsenal pair Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy, taking the spending under Abu Dhabi billionaire Sheikh Mansour since his 2009 takeover over US$1 billion.

The Italian coach has managed to cut the wage bill at City, though, selling winger Shaun Wright-Phillips to Premier League rival Queens Park Rangers on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Wales forward Craig Bellamy left for Liverpool on a two-year loan deal on Wednesday while striker Emmanuel Adebayor joined Tottenham on a season-long loan this month.

Extremely interesting transfer day. Most interesting ones for me have to be Arteta for the absolute messiness of it (Arteta himself said 2 weeks ago Everton needed to keep their best players, then deal was on, then dead, then Arteta handed in transfer request with 1 hour to go and deal was completed), and Crouch going to Stoke, just because he's perfect for them :p

How abt Meireles handing in a transfer request just 20 mins before the deadline? 3 mins before the deadline AVB and Chelsea came for him and completed the deal in the last minute..

Also.. why is it that when Arsene doesn't buy Cahill coz the price is outrageous it is Wenger's fault but when 'Appy 'Arry does the same all the papers write the asking price is too high.. Anyways I love that we got players who are Arsenal fans like Mertesacker or players like Ju who has just 2.5 years left to play football in EU so will give their all to the club..
