Manchester City have named a training pitch after Joe Hart

After all, United were stealing one of the Premier League's elite players away from their old rivals, and from right under the noses of Manchester City.

Guardiola wanted a goalkeeper who was more comfortable with the ball at his feet, and Ederson is delivering for City after replacing Claudio Bravo as number one. "I am delighted that we are keeping such a talented young English player with a bright future ahead of him". There is no doubt how important for this club he was and is. "Tomorrow you will see how people appreciate what he has done for this club".

"Normally the player thinks of himself, himself, himself, it's not easy, [but] he put himself a little bit in my position and said he understood perfectly".

"Chelsea look very good at the moment, although United can take confidence from the second half against Newcastle".

"He's part of the history here".

"Luke reacted in the best possible way in these hard moments, the moments where he was not selected, not playing regular, he was saying the same all the time, "I want to play for you and United I am going to make it and be the player you want me to be". That's why it was not easy for me to take a decision.


"This is the period that United need to be getting up for the games and I wouldn't be surprised if they come through this period pretty well because they are capable of playing against and matching the good teams".

The public flak led to reports of Shaw thinking about leaving the club, but his improved form this season saw him earn an England recall last month after missing out on Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad. "Sometimes it's not easy but it's what it is".

Joe Hart was loaned out by the Manchester City boss shortly after the Spaniard took over at the club.

"Having the goalkeeping pitch at the City Football Academy dedicated to me is a huge honour", Hart said via a City news release.

Sanchez's highly-publicised mega-contract at Old Trafford only helped boost the intrigue at the signing - was the Chilean the missing piece in Jose Mourinho's jigsaw?
