As usual, every other Premier League club is playing for second in the transfer market, behind the big spenders at Manchester City. The Citizens made the signing of the January window Saturday when they picked up Mix Diskerud — a.k.a. Nordic Messi, a.k.a. Which One Is Mix Diskerud And Which One Is Brek Shea Again — from New York City FC.
Delighted to report the news that @MixDiskerud will further be cementing his relationship with Umbro in our hometown, as he proudly continues his footballing development with a 4,5y Manchester City FC contract. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/JEYJdjoTPZ— Umbro (@umbro) January 27, 2018
It's unbelieveble that Manchester City keep beating the other big Premier League clubs to these types of signings, but somehow it keeps happening. Diskerud's signature was surely hotly sought-after.
No word on what squad number Diskerud will wear, but the No. 9 shirt is currently available.
