Mario Balotelli of Manchester City
Manchester City already had a solid attack and counter-attack last season. Then they went and added Javi Garcia, a midfielder from Benfica. Garcia is regarded as an exceptional player, and City paid like he was one.
The transfer fee of €20.2 million, roughly $25.4 million, was the fourth most expensive fee in the transfer window.
Garcia is only 25 years old, and he just now entering the prime of his career. The defensive midfielder isn't the fastest player on the pitch, but he is exceptionally strong and does well at marking.
He plays well in the counter-attack and is above-average at passing. For corners Javi is outstanding and he is very good at headers, consistently putting the ball on net.
They also added left winger Scott Sinclair from Swansea. Sinclair doesn't figure to be a starter, but he will be a solid contributor off the bench. He plays very fast and is an above-average dribbler. His elite speed allows him to draw attention because he can break past the defense at any time.
That is just in addition to their already strong set of attacking players. Sergio Aguero is among the elite in the world. He is extremely fast and knows how to score goals.
Mario Balotelli had somewhat of a breakout campaign in his EPL and Champions League campaigns. Balotelli showed tremendous finishing ability, and when he had his head on straight, he was arguably the best player on the pitch at any time.
It seems like Carlos Tevez is getting up there in years, but at only 28 he still has a lot of time ahead of him. He has started strong this season and if he keeps it up City will an amazing attack.
