The transfer merry-go-round is in full swing as Javier Garrido replaces the man who joined City.
Aleksander Kolarov was unveiled as the blues latest capture last week, which cast question marks over the other two left backs we had at the club, Garrido and Wayne Bridge. But Garrido is now set to replace Kolarov in Serie A after agreeing a move to Lazio for an undisclosed fee, which is thought to be around the £2m mark.
Garrido was signed by former City boss Sven Goran Eriksson in the summer of 2007 but struggled to make an impact at the club and was eventually replaced by Michael Ball, who then found himself replaced by Wayne Bridge.
In three seasons at the club, Garrido made 62 appearances for City scoring two goals, both from free kicks, but just twelve of those appearances came last season.
With the signing of Kolarov and Mancini’s desire to have two top class players for each position, it was only a matter of time before either he or Bridge left Eastlands and it seems now that we will be left with the latter.
What do you think? Should Bridge have gone instead of Garrido?
