Zabaleta claims his Argentina pal has followed the Bluesâ€™ recent rise and asks about them when they meet up on Ânational duty.
â€śWhen I signed for City, I think two days later the news broke that Sheikh Mansour had bought the club and Lionel always recalls that I joined at such a fantastic time.
