Guardiola's reputation as a champion of both youth and midfield stylists from his time at Barcelona means player and manager could be coming together at an ideal time.
City have had a good warm-up going into the start of the campaign despite a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in their opening clash of their pre-season tour of America.
"Six players were out of contract".
Guardiola had a troubled debut campaign at Eastlands as the Spaniard failing to win a trophy for the first time in his storied managerial career. "The market is so demanding for all the teams, not just Manchester City".

Despite making such significant investments, Guardiola claimed City have actually saved money by getting the majority of their transfer business done earlier in the close season.
"We feel ready because we've been at a good level but we have nothing to show for it at the moment", said City captain Vincent Kompany.
"This division is far tougher and we'll certainly need all of the experienced heads around us".
"I think it is unsustainable".
Fortified by Manchester City's £200 million ($260 million) overhaul, Pep Guardiola is under pressure to ensure his second season in the Premier League is far more successful than his torrid first.
"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind [Chelsea]", Guardiola told a news conference.
Although many still believe Pep will continue with his beloved 4-3-3, the additional formation will give City some flexibility next season, and they can use it in big games to use the element of surprise, such as the Manchester Derby.
That accolade has already been bestowed upon some familiar and not-so familiar faces at the other 18 Premier League clubs - feats that can not be unwritten.
"Then I became a starter at Schalke, played my first global game and also took part in the European Championships". We have to deal with that and handle that. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens knowing how hard it is".
