Anyone who has ever been single knows that Chris Rock told the God's honest truth about the correlation between how hard it is to find a date when you are single, and how the whole world seems to show interest in you when you are no longer available.
"Women like men that are in relationships. Guys know what I'm talking about. When you were single no one was thinking about you...now your phone is ringing off the hook," Rock famously intoned.
So it goes with Manchester City in the world football dating game known as the summer transfer window. Though the window has not opened yet, both the clubs and the players are in the process of putting on their going-out clothes and hoping to make some magic.
Last week, when Manchester City's Premier League title bid still looked shaky, the names associated with the Sky Blues in the transfer market were just that—names.
This week, with City once again atop the league table and a heavy favorite to finish the job, per Oddschecker.com, they are being linked with some of the biggest and most expensive players the market will offer.
Everybody really does love a winner.
