Pep Guardiola Looking To Add To His Manchester City Squad

Big-spending Pep Guardiola leads chase of Chelsea as big guns recharge ahead of new season

Guardiola: Intelligent Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate Manchester City impact

"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said.

For a serial collector of trophies at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, finishing his first season in English football without a single title was an unusual feeling for Guardiola. "Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed".

There is a sense that City, although spending more than £200m, have yet to complete their business for the summer, with the board ready to back the manager if he wants another player or two before the window slams shut.

With Diego Costa widely reported to be leaving the club, the main striker is Alvaro Morata, brought from Real Madrid, and while he is an undoubted talent, he is untested in English football.

"My experience of being a manager, always the beginning of the season the new ones are the toughest ones".

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind".

I like new manager Marco Silva, who looks more suitable than predecessor Walter Mazzarri, but the squad is not great and they haven't spent enough to go to the next level. "I know it's a big responsibility considering I have become one of the most expensive goalkeepers".

He added: "We played four games, one with four at the back and the last three with three at the back".

Liverpool - The Reds have added Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke, but they haven't signed almost enough players to be challenging for the title.

"So it's a bit of a gamble but he has definitely brought quality to the club".

Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte
So I don't think he'll be a huge loss to them. "I think he's very similar in a way to Michael Carrick ". Nemanja Matic made 112 defensive actions in the Premier League last season.


Cristiano Ronaldo - Though he went on to be the muscle-clad goalscoring cyborg we all know and love/hate (delete as appropriate), Ronaldo was well on his way to world domination at Old Trafford.

Danilo's arrival for £26.5 million, meanwhile, may well have been met with sniggers in Spain, but it's worth remembering he can also fill in at left-back, and that he played in central midfield in the early stages of his career at Santos.

"The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

In search of goals, Manchester United turned to last season's second-highest scorer.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

There's no outstanding favourite and this is the most exciting season.

As well as that, City have gone another step further with the signings of Monaco duo Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy who cost over £50m.

The three that have come up will be in the mix and I think West Brom could struggle if they can't get players in, but I think Tony Pulis will make signing to keep them safe. Now with Neymar. "But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".
