Yesterday David Silva was confirmed as a Manchester City player.

Today David Platt was announced as a new first team coach and tomorrow a further deal will be announced.

The confirmation of Yaya Toure as a Sky Blue, Citizen.

Soon after Manchester City will confirm the signing of James Milner, and in doing so, will have bookmakers changing their odd for City to win the title.

Manchester City are currently 13/2 joint 3rd favourites with Paddy Power alongside Arsenal with Manchester United 2nd favourites at 2/1 and Chelsea 13/8 favourites.

With City the only club truly improving both on and off the pitch next season, it will be interesting to see if Paddy Power makes City clear 3rd favourites after the Milner deal is announced.

It's very likely that they will, and that begs the question: what will happen when Yaya Toure completes his move? Another cut in odds? Very possibly.

But let's save the best 'til last and ask what would happen if Manchester City were to wrap up a deal for Fernando Torres?
