Samir Nasri Transfer: 7 Reasons Manchester City Are Title Favourites

When Roberto Mancini replaced Mark Hughes as Manchester City manager in December 2009 the former Italy international faced an enormous task.

Under the ownership and watchful eye of Sheikh Mansour the Italian manager was instructed to turn Mark Hughes’ top ten squad into a leading team in European football.

Almost two calendar years have since passed, and progress is good.

Mancini has assembled the most talented squad of individuals in world football; all he has to do is turn them into a team.

The club have had their teething problems, which have all been well documented, but after securing the signings of Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri during the current transfer window, and based on their pre-season forms, the Citizens have one of the strongest claims to the Premier League crown.

Roberto Mancini himself has said:

“We have a great chance of winning the title this season. When we won in 1968, you could have got 200-1 on us before the season started but we went on to do it. I can see the attitude of our players then in the players we have now” (Source: Daily Mail.)

This slideshow will assess the Citizen’s league title aspirations for the season.
