Guardiola suggests he’s happy with Man City squad and won’t buy in January

Pep Guardiola has said suggested will not be looking to add to his Manchester City squad in January as he is happy with the players he currently has.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager said that transfers made in the January window are rarely long-term investments.

“Normally when you buy a player it is for the next five or six years. That normally doesn’t happen in this window,” Guardiola told a pre-match conference today.

“If you are satisfied with the squad you have, which we are, you go ahead with what you have.”

City host Wolves on Monday night in the Premier League as they look to close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the table.

Guardiola’s side put nine goals past League One’s Burton Albion in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final during the week with many fringe players getting some game time for City.

Gabriel Jesus staked his claim for a more regular starting place by banging in four goals in that game and will be hopeful of starting this weekend.
