Guardiola hints that Man City transfer business is done unless a ‘special player’ is available

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hinted that his clubs transfer business this summer may be over.

Guardiola has been so far left frustrated in his attempts to bring in another central midfielder after losing out on the signings of Fred and Jorginho, to Manchester United and Chelsea respectively.

Reigning Premier League Champions City’s only high profile signing of the summer so far has been the £65 million capture of former Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez, with Guardiola now revealing that he would be happy to start the new season with his current squad, although if a ‘special,’ player becomes available his club may still make a move this summer.

“We will see,” Guardiola is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“If at the end we decide to bring another one, it is because he’s a special player, can be a special player for the future, not to have one more player for the number.

“So, I’m so satisfied – all my period here, even the first year – with the squad we have.

“Now from Monday we’ll be all together. We are going to start to think what we have do to this season maintain the level of last season.”

City face Chelsea this Sunday in the Community Shield, before beginning their Premier League campaign away to Arsenal on August 12.
