Wanchope: it's Man City

Filed: Friday, 4th August 2000
By: Matthew O'Greel

Paulo Wanchope will sign for Manchester City on Monday - despite a late bid by Bradford to take the striker to Valley Parade.

Wanchope has informed his agent that he will choose to join Manchester City next season, as predicted by Bantams chairman Geoffrey Richmond who admitted yesterday his club had little chance of luring the Costa Rican hitman despite matching Man.City's offer of £4.5m.

Wanchope has chosen City mainly because of the size and tradition of the club - plus the fact that he will partner former World footballer of the year, George Weah - a prospect Wanchope finds too good to turn down.

Wanchope will inform City boss Joe Royle of the good news over the weekend, and should complete his transfer to the premiership new boys on Monday.
