City bring in Zabaleta and Glauber, is Corluka off to Spurs?

Manchester City have completed the signings of 23-year-old Argentine international Pablo Zabaleta from Espanyol on a 5-year deal (roughly £6.5m) and 25-year-old Brazilian defender Glauber Berti from FC Nuremburg on a one year deal.

This takes City’s signings for the summer to 6 as Zabaleta and Berti join Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jo, Ben Haim and Vincent Kompany.


Although Hughes insisted yesterday that Zabaleta wasn’t a replacement for Tottenham target Vedran Corluka, there is a chance now that with City stocking up on defenders that Corluka will be allowed to move if the player is pushing for it and if Tottenham come in with a really good offer.

Just a day to go, watch this space.
