Man City boss Guardiola admits Neves interest: But not at that price

Man City possible XI

He said: "I'm not talking about the case of the Ajax player because he is an Ajax player".

Pep Guardiola conceded Manchester City face a hard task beating Barcelona and Real Madrid when it comes to transfers. Maybe there aren't many but there are players who can play in that role. A month ago, I started reading - "Rúben Neves, £100m".

"It's not easy to find the specific quality of the players", said Guardiola.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss added: "Specifically with Fernandinho's role, it's so hard to find".

The Citizens struggled to deal with the loss of Fernandinho through injury over the festive period and lost three times in the space of four Premier League games. But, of course, for the next season it's an important target to find.

James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons. Kasinskas said she taught Patterson science in middle school, but added: "I don't really remember a ton about him".

Wanderers go into this match off the back of a solid win over Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, and having already held Man City in the Premier League this season, they will head up the M6 high in confidence.

Wolves will head to the Etihad Stadium knowing that they were one of few teams to stop the Citizens scoring there last season, when the two sides met in a Carabao Cup tie, one which Pep Guardiola's men eventually won on penalty kicks after a goalless draw. Of course, all departments in the club, we have in every position four or five or six options - depending on age, what we believe and, of course, the price. We try to be stable in everything. 'After Wigan beat us in the FA Cup we had time a year ago. But we can not do it every season.

Guardiola acknowledges he can not expect Fernandinho, signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, to play as much for City as he gets older, adding a solution has to be found for next season.

"There are many clubs in the world, many holding midfielders in the world, and majority can play here". He made an incredible assist and a lot of passes before the finish. When he's close to the box, he arrives in the right tempo and the right moment to score a goal.
