    Let's make a bet on the number of minutes he'll play at City

    Hey, you never know unless you try! Having said that, maybe shoot for the stars and end up on the moon?

    Anyone else find it weird that there is no official confirmation from Manchester City on this transfer? I can't find a tweet or article from the club itself announcing his transfer.

    Seems sketchy.

    Man City often doesn't do a full release on its website for players who aren't slated to join the MCFC first team in the immediate future. You can interpret that how you will - basically it's a CFG portfolio acquisition - but the transaction itself is totally above board. You could say that Itakura isn't a Manchester City Football Club player in a meaningful sporting sense yet, but that his contract is with City Football Group.
