With no weekend fixture, Manchester City squad and staff are enjoying a warm-weather training expedition to Abu Dhabi.
And that has given City owner, Sheikh Mansour, a chance to meet up with members of the playing and coaching staff. The Sheikh has only publicly attended one City game, but is said to watch every match religiously in his homeland.
The deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates was photographed today talking to City boss, Pep Guardiola, and star striker, Sergio Agüero, who of course has been the subject of speculation lately concerning his future.
Wouldn’t you just love to know what was said?
