After the arrival of four key players to the Etihad stadium during the summer transfer window, defender Vincent Kompany has said that City will be one of the formidable challengers for the title race. City have spent close to £ 100 million in bringing players like Alvaro Negredo, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, and Stevan Jovetic. These four players will help the team challenge on all four fronts according to Kompany, who has been one of their best players in the last few seasons. The Belgian international missed a large chunk of last season due to injuries.

However, he is now fully fit and he is looking forward to a great campaign. Kompany has said that the four players signed by the club offers a new dimension to the team. He has praised the officials behind their arrivals by saying that they were definitely want the team needed after the disappointing season last time around. City failed to win any trophy for the first time in three years last season, and manager Roberto Mancini paid for it with his job. Manuel Pellegrini has been appointed as his replacement, and the Chilean manager is targeting the Premier league title in his first season at the club.

City will also be expected to progress into the knockout stages of the Champions league.

“You can see that whoever is responsible for bringing in the players at City did their homework really well. They bring something different to the team and I’m sure they’ll have a great season. Alvaro has given us defenders an interesting time during training with his movement and finishing. His attitude as well is spot on. We’re having a lot of fun already. Jovetic you can see has great feet. I can’t say enough about Navas and all those that have joined us,” said Kompany.
