IF this is what it's about I can't see it doing well... City, despite their success, just aren't that big a draw. As an attraction they're a glorified Sunderland in the eyes of the barstoolers and about 19 people turned up to see them play a few years back. The same barstoolers of whom it would be safe to say a big percentage are United fans... depending on what LFC are paying to get them over here this could be a financial poke in the eye for the club. This is ambitious and hopefully we've set up some kind of player/coach swap style relationship with them like with Arsenal but why City? Because they're PL Champions? The point of these friendlies is to get popular teams to maximize money in, not the flavour of the month.
