What Johnson said after leaving City for Sunderland: “When City come in for you, it is hard to say no. I was in that situation a couple of years ago. I would probably advise young English players you probably won’t get the chance to play as much as you would like.”

What Barry had to say on Manchester City’s potential move for Ross Barkley in April: “I think Ross is too young to make that move,” the 34-year-old said. “Everton is better for his development. He’s still learning the game. He’s got the right manager here to push him to the next level. As soon as he reaches that next level, then there’s another decision to be made.”

What Lescott said on his opportunities at City: “I need to be given a fair opportunity. I know no one can guarantee me playing every week but I would like to think that given a fair opportunity to play, if I am playing in the team I can do well enough to stay in the team. I just want to be treated like everyone else. If I am in the team and the team is winning I stay in the team."
