Tbh I think I could understand any player going to City right now. They are getting the next level of players, above Bellamy, Barry etc and going for Silva, Torres etc. Added to that the money on offer. If I was a footballer I would seriously consider any offer from them.
Torres would definitely be guaranteed a first team place at City with Adebayor and Tevez rotated around him and his injuries. Torres would more than likely get fewer injuries at City as well as he wouldn't have to be played if he was carrying a niggle.
