Champions-elect, Manchester City have decided to give Manager Pep Guardiola a whopping £200m to further strengthen his first-team squad ahead of next season.
Since arriving Manchester in 2016, Guardiola has already spent over £400m and the former Bayern and Barcelona Boss indicated last year that he would not be spending in the upcoming transfer windows.
However, according to The Mirror, Manchester City are set to pay big fees in order to bring in at least three more players before the start of the 2018/2019 season.
The report claims that Guardiola wants to sign a new central defender, holding midfielder and attacking player, and a whole host of names are on the City boss’s shortlist.
Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld could allegedly make the switch to the Etihad Stadium, while Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fred and Napoli’s Jorginho are options in the middle of the park.
Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar – of Leicester City and Monaco respectively – are being considered in the final third.
