Pep Guardiola: Promising signs against Spurs

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admits he will try to sign another central defender before next month’s transfer deadline.

City have already spent over £220million this summer and Guardiola now possesses the most expensive defence ever assembled.

Guardiola, however, insists he is happy with his defensive options, but says City will continue to try and add another option to their centre-half options.

“I am happy with John Stones, Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi,” the City boss ahead of Saturday pre-season friendly against Spurs in Nashville.

“We don’t have too much more to spend. We have spent a lot because we didn’t have a lot of guys.

“But if the market gives us a chance we are going to try to sign (a defender).”

“I’m happy with the squad we have.

“I was happy with the players I had last season. You never hear one bad word about the players.

“But we’ll buy players to reinforce the team, like other teams around the world, until August 31st.”
