Guardiola wants Manchester City to play like Barcelona - Yaya Toure

Manchester City Sergio will always perform for Manchester City
Rita Gibson | 12 August, 2017, 06:53

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".

Close to £130 million was invested in full-backs as Guardiola shored up his defence with Tottenham's Kyle Walker, Monaco's Benjamin Mendy from Monaco and Real Madrid's Danilo.

According to Spanish radio station Onda Cero (via the Manchester Evening News' Alex Porter), City are looking to strengthen their midfield following the sale of Fernando and have contacted Barca about potentially buying Busquets.

City dropped 17 points in the Premier League at home last season and finished third behind champions Chelsea and Tottenham.

Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill reportedly decides to have season-ending ACL surgery
Tannehill and the Dolphins elected rehabilitation and stem-cell treatment instead of surgery, and it seemed to be a good decision. Now he'll spend the 2017 season watching and rehabbing as his last-minute replacement Jay Cutler leads the Dolphins .

"We needed to do that this summer because we have one of the oldest teams in Europe". They've got to get to know the team, while we have a strong team base together and all know each other's game. We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

City still appears too dependent on Vincent Kompany, its injury-prone center back and captain, while a new holding midfielder to replace 34-year-old Yaya Toure will probably be Guardiola's priority next summer. Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero are both looking in good form and they should provide plenty of goals for the team from the north of England.

The website notes that for all their lavish spending City still lack a "world class centre-back", and says Guardiola has identified the Saints stopper as the man to add some ballast to his back-four after their fragility last season cost them credibility on the European stage.

City begin the campaign against Brighton on Saturday and Guardiola is pleased with how his squad are shaping up.
