Guardiola not expecting any more Manchester City signings

Christian Benteke

In comparison, Tottenham Hotspur are the only team yet to make any signings in the ongoing transfer window.

While it must be said that the former Chelsea boss has done himself no favours with his sullen demeanour and constant complaining during pre-season, it's fair to say the 55-year-old's achievements in the game and even since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 are not always judged objectively against some of his Premier League rivals.

Another specialist holding midfield option alongside Fernandinho was also a priority but City's pursuit of Jorginho ended with the Italy worldwide moving to Chelsea from Napoli.

Pep Guardiola has admitted that he would have liked to sign a holding midfield player to support Fernandinho, with the club having their long-term pursuit of Italian midfielder Jorginho hijacked by Chelsea.

It's time to get excited for the return of the Premier League. "We lost Riyad Mahrez [to Manchester City], who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad".

"But Gundogan I like as a player with a special feeling in the box".

Arsenal have been doing really well in pre-season, Manchester United are always going to be strong.

"We don't have many".

"I think a team that is working for six weeks minimum, with all the players except one central defender and one striker that can join in the last week and probably be available, I think that is clear, a much better situation for them".

"John [Stones], I think he can play there but I don't know".

"Before saying anything or doing anything, you want to observe and see if you can see the same mistakes as what we made previously", the centre-back told Sky Sports.

The Predictor tips heavy spenders West Ham United to struggle to a seventeenth place finish, while two of the newly promoted clubs - Wolves and Cardiff City are tipped to go down, along with David Wagner's Huddersfield Town.

The Portuguese coach said on Sunday his team could face a "difficult" season if there are no new arrivals before the 5 p.m. deadline on Thursday.

"We want to keep good ambition".
