City signing Jerome Boateng meets one of his new team-mates on Saturday - but he and striker Carlos Tevez will line up AGAINST each other in a World Cup quarter-final.
Jerome, who officially became a Blue today after leaving Hamburg, is part of the Germany side aiming to topple Tevez's Argentina in Cape Town and reach the last four.
Boateng, who made a flying visit to Manchester to agree his deal before returning to South Africa, has emerged as a consistent figure in Joachim Low's bid for glory.
But Carlos, whose non-stop approach helps underpin Diego Maradona's challenge, will have an appetite for further goals after celebrating a double strike against Mexico.
Roque Santa Cruz will be hoping to bump into one of them in next week's Durban semi-final. But the striker and his Paraguay pals must first get past Spain on Saturday night.
