It’s seemingly the quiet before the storm as far as City-related World Cup Final news.

Only the Daily Mail carries anything particularly noteworthy with regards to this Sunday’s mammoth showdown between Germany and Argentina in Rio – a suitably titanic finale to what has been a remarkable tournament that could see City’s trio of La Albiceleste stars all in action.

Sergio Aguero has revelled in proving Argentina’s doubters wrong at Brazil 2014. The City man coolly despatched the third penalty against Holland on Wednesday night to help secure his country’s final spot, and he believes Alejandro Sabella’s side have silenced those who believe their rely solely on Leo Messi.

A lot of people didn't think Argentina would get to the final but we knew what players we had - very good players.

“Making the final means so much.'”

There’ll be plenty of City-related World Cup Final content throughout the weekend on www.mcfc.co.uk including a full preview of Sunday’s hugely anticipated game coming-up later today.

A little closer to home, the Manchester Evening News report that new signing Fernando had his summer holidays ruined by his transfer to the Etihad Stadium.

““I was on holidays but I was looking forward to start and couldn’t stop thinking about this moment, so it was tricky being on holiday, with my thoughts on the new contract and everything,” Stuart Brennan quotes the Brazilian star.

““It was a very difficult transfer, we had to face a lot of challenges in order to be here today, but thanks to God everything went well and I am here to help Manchester City in the best way possible.””

Following news of his new five-year deal at City, the Daily Star carries quotes from Samir Nasri who reckons he will only get better – great news for the Etihad faithful who purred at the Frenchman’s performances throughout last season’s title-winning campaign.

“"I'm 27 now and if you listen to some of the best managers in the game, they say that a midfield player's best years are between 27 and 30 so I hope that I will give my best years to City."

“"It took me time to adjust to living in Manchester because when you move here from London, it is a big change.

“"But last year everything was perfect. I enjoyed my football and I love living in Manchester, feel very settled and I think that showed on the pitch.

“"That's why I've agreed this new contract - because I feel very much at home. Our supporters have been right behind me and it gives me the confidence to play my best game.

“"Now I'm looking forward to the new season and to defending our title again."”

That’s all for today. We’ll have more from the media over the weekend as always here on www.mcfc.co.uk.
