Guardiola insists he’s ‘more than happy’ with Man City squad as he refuses to discuss Lewandowski interest

Pep Guardiola insists he is more than happy with Manchester City’s current squad and has refused to discuss potential interest in Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski is understood to be keen on a new challenge away from Bayern Munich, with City having been linked with a move for the Poland international as a potential alternative to Harry Kane.


Guardiola worked with the 32-year-old during his time in charge of the Bundesliga side, but refused to discuss the possibility of a potential transfer should City be unable to agree a deal with Tottenham for Kane.

“Next question,” Guardiola responded when asked about Lewandowski at his pre-match press conference.

“He is an important player for Bayern and he will stay there.”

Guardiola was asked whether he would be happy with his current options should the transfer window close now, with the Spaniard giving a definitive answer.

“Absolutely – more than happy,” he insisted.

“It’s the same team we had last season except for Sergio [Aguero] and for Jack [Grealish].”

Guardiola also provided an injury update on his squad ahead of the visit of Norwich to the Etihad, revealing that Kevin De Bruyne – who came on as a substitute during the 1-0 defeat at Tottenham last weekend – did not train with his side on Friday.

“No injury news, all good news. Kevin [de Bruyne] couldn’t train today so yes, I suppose he is news. We’ll see tomorrow how he is. And of course, Phil [Foden] is still out.”
