Edinson Cavani will be the first slide in these Manchester City transfer trackers until he is officially signed somewhere else has been my promise to you since the transfer window opened.
With any luck (for both of us) this will be the last time Cavani leads off in this summer series.
Cavani's coy, will-he-or-won't-he summer antics even eclipsed the inane and insane hand-wringing that accompanied the National Basketball Association's lengthy drama over the eventual landing spot for Dwight Howard.
That is fitting, because unlike Howard, Cavani has a reasonable chance to lead his new team to a championship.
Sadly for City fans, it does not appear that Cavani will be carrying the Sky Blues on his back any time soon. The good news is, with Cavani all but signed with Paris Saint-Germain according to ESPN.co.uk, City can at least be confident that he will not haunt them in the league all season.
So if it is not Cavani—and that is not official yet—who might it be for the Citizens?
