His form the past 2 years in bigger matches, has been very poor, Champions League in particular where they've failed to get out of a group twice. They bought Nastasic, the 19 year old from Fiorentina as a future, and he's been magnificent back there while Kompany is gone, so that would be 1 pairing for them, plus you know City will buy a CB this summer, may even look at Skrtel since I don't believe he's staying.
I personally don't like / rate Lescott at all, but for 4M and a rotational player, then yes. I'd much prefer the names (rumors) of the likes of Sakho from PSG, De Vrij from Netherlands, and some others who will be on the market. I don't think we should buy Ashley Williams because he plays LCB, and that's Agger's spot, which is also where Lescott plays.
We need a Right Center Half who's either going to replace Skrtel, or push him back to his form of last year, with another who can cover both sides. Lescott would do ok in that role. Mind you, I think Wisdom will spend this summer converting back to CB, and Kelly will return and has said he prefers Right Back, but would also play CB if asked, so Wisdom is raw, but Kelly is not, and by the articles I've read, the physios say he'll be better than he was before.
