Pellegrini wants Blues firing

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists he needs four fully-fit strikers in order for his side to defend their Premier League title this season.

We need four strikers. At this moment Stevan is doing very well but you cannot forget Negredo is injured.

Edin Dzeko and Jovetic and Aguero are working well. It is important that they continue playing the way they did.

Kun Aguero is a very special player for us and it was good that the first ball he touched was a goal. That was not luck.

He is working very hard during the week and this is an important reward.

Macheda excited by Di Maria

Former Manchester United forward Federico Macheda believes Angel di Maria is "one of the best signings" his old club could make.

I think he's one of the best signings they could make.

At Man United a player like Di Maria will lift the players and the club as well.

If they can get him it will be great for the club.

He has played already for a big club in Real Madrid so he will be fine with the pressure on him.

He's been to Portugal and Spain so that will help him coming to England.
