I wouldn’t say Maxi is a soft player - he is quite effective on D and dispossessing the opponent. By virtue of them being the “same player,” wouldn’t that be a plus since we’ve seen so many times that when a team can shut Maxi down our engine room sputters - with Silva, there’d be a second bus driver to direct the attack.Silva and KDB play entirely different games. Silva and Maxi are like for like players. KDB relies on power and pace. He puts in a defensive shift and can put in a tackle.
Both Maxi and Silva are “soft” players.
Not to mention that City have a $130 million #6, $110 million worth of CBs on the bench currently and a goalkeeper who is probably the 3rd best in the world.
