Manuel Pellegrini may have confirmed yesterday that the signing of Eliaquim Mangala was the conclusion of their transfer business it does not mean the club have stopped with contract negotiations - it seems with their own players.
Yesterday, just 24 hours after announcing that creative midfielder David Silva had signed a new five-year deal at the club they tied down an even more important player to a new contract - the club captain Vincent Kompany.
Interestingly not a player bought with the Emirati millions instead Kompany signed in 2008 from Hamburg in a deal believed to be worth around £6 million.
Since then he has gone on to become one of the best defenders in the world, and possibly the best in the Premier League - helping the club win two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup during his time in Manchester - and is now bequeathed to The Citizens until 2019, when he will be 33-years-old.
And Kompany, who is now targeting the Champions League crown, has Tweeted his joy at signing a new deal with the club.
Is Kompany the best defender in the Premier League?
