Transfer Zone: Huge signing for Man City plus, Ed Woodward's Ronaldo masterstroke

Manchester City may have missed out on Cristiano Ronaldo but they still managed to get another exciting talent to sign on the dotted line.

Alanna Kennedy

With close to 100 international appearances, 26-year-old Alanna Kennedy is certainly the real deal.

The defender joins on a two-year-deal to further bolster Man City's squad ahead of the Women's Super League season.

Some fans though, were clearly expecting someone else.

Looks like Norwich were a lot closer to signing Ronaldo than Man City.

Pape Matar Sarr

As Manchester United were busy signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Tottenham confirmed their capture of Senegalese midfielder, Pape Matar Sarr.

A lot fans have jumped to the comments section to point this out. However, considering the 18-year-olds potential, it may be Spurs fans who have the last laugh further down the line.
