Patrick Vieira Signs Man City Deal

The deal only secures him time at the club for six months, with an option of another year. But it will still see him earning about £150,000 a week. Not bad for a 33-year-old. Manchester City manager, Roberto Mancini, had this to say about the French international:

"Patrick is a world class midfielder with a winner's mentality and will fit into this group very well. He knows me and my staff well, and importantly he also knows what the Premier League is all about. He will not need much time to settle in. Patrick is one of the great players of his era with every almost every honour in the game against his name. I am sure City fans will welcome him warmly and appreciate the contribution he will make."
