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

  • Man City possible XI

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the Premier League champions can not compete with LaLiga powerhouses Barcelona and Real Madrid in the transfer market. "He'll be 34 and can not play every few days".

There have been reports in British newspapers suggesting Wolves' Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves may be a long-term replacement for Fernandinho, although their roles are slightly different.

City have struggled to cope when they have been without Fernandinho in that position, losing both the Premier League games he missed, but the Brazilian will be 34 when next season kicks off.

"Ruben Neves is an excellent player", said Guardiola, whose second-placed side will be looking to cut Liverpool's seven-point lead at the top of the table.

"Gündogan played the last two games like a holding midfielder [against Rotherham United and Burton Albion], he had more space than usual - but he was so clever". But he's an excellent player. He can play that holding midfield role, he has the quality and the vision to pass.

Less than 15 minutes later, Jake Patterson, 21, was in custody after police pulled over his vehicle, based on Closs' description. Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg reiterated Saturday that the family had no connection with Patterson and didn't know him.

"Most of them are under contracts".

But Guardiola insisted, for all City's wealth, there were limits to even their transfer budget. A month ago, I started reading - "Rúben Neves, £100m". "That's not going to happen". He can play that holding midfield role.

Guardiola did not reference De Jong but conceded City face a hard task beating Barca and Madrid when it comes to transfers. "That's why they are doing incredibly well in the Premier League". It looks simple but it's not simple.

'It would be a dream, everyone is invited, ' Guardiola said. "That's why in the transfer window when you ask me [about new signings] and I say no, it's because I know the players and the quality and know exactly what they can give us until the end of the season".

The manager said City would do everything they can to help Gabriel Jesus after close relatives including his mother, Vera Lucia Diniz de Jesus, returned to Brazil. "It's complicated, so, so complicated".
