Guardiola on Manchester City signings hard to beat Real Madrid Barcelona

Guardiola on Manchester City signings hard to beat Real Madrid Barcelona

"I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know", said Guardiola.

Guardiola trialled both John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan in Fernandinho's role while he was absent through injury last month, but neither offered the same protection as the veteran.

De Jong, along with Wolves' Ruben Neves and Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele, have been linked with a possible move to the Etihad but Guardiola insisted they will not overspend to fill the role.

And while Pochettino has somewhat managed to find adequate cover in the holding midfield role, Spurs have struggled to provide creativity without the services of Christian Eriksen, especially with Dele Alli not exerting the same dominance as before.

But most importantly, the 21-year-old is a tactically astute midfielder, who shouldn't find any difficulties in adapting to Pochettino's front-footed build-up and aggressive approach in the final third - making him a tailor-made fit for the Lilywhites. He knows the Premier League and, after three years together here, he knows everything and that's so important.

"The system at Wolves involves playing with two holding midfielders, not just one".

Government shutdown enters 4th week
Trump is growing more frustrated as the shutdown drags on and is complaining that his aides are not offering him an exit strategy. House Democrats as well as a smattering of Republicans voted this week in favor of bills to reopen portions of the government.

"But, of course, for the next season it's an important target to find".

"There are many clubs in the world, many holding midfielders in the world, and a lot of them can play here".

Despite the likelihood of losing out on De Jong, Guardiola has no qualms over the work being done by City director of football Txiki Begiristain and his team to bring in top-class players. "I hope they will be ready". It looks simple but it's not simple.

Neves' promising performances for Wolves have led to speculation that he could soon be on the move to a bigger club but Guardiola has ruled out a move to City due to his price tag.

"But sometimes it doesn't depend on us", said the Catalan manager. "It's complicated, so, so complicated".
