Timing can be everything, and Manchester City have shown it in this transfer window.

Every attacker at City could be forgiven for thinking about their game time for that brief window when Messi to City appeared more on that it ever had been.

While the club works to bring in new additions and further strengthen the squad and starting XI, Torres and Ake can take advantage of their unexpected chance to become even more valuable signings.

Txiki Begiristain has made two excellent additions to Pep Guardiola's squad for the upcoming season, but in part because the moves were completed six weeks ago and also because of wider expectations there is frustration setting in for certain fans.

City's two new additions know they can't afford to relax given the high standards that Guardiola demands but are heading into the season knowing they have opportunities that may not have been there, with every extra appearance a chance to further earn the manager's trust for future games.

A deal for another centre-back - the main priority for the Blues - still does not appear close despite Kalidou Koulibaly being identified months ago as a preferred option, while the initial giddiness around Lionel Messi eventually turned into a laborious waiting game that inevitably didn't come off (again).

Instead, as it stands with Koulibaly still in Napoli and Aymeric Laporte having less than a week with the squad after a positive Covid test, the former Bournemouth man is arguably the first centre-back on the teamsheet for Monday.
