Transfer Rumour: Manchester City plotting shock move for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect". It's going to be tough for them.

Meanwhile, Guardiola claims there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

"We needed to do that because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League, and we need to change it".

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. Good as it may look, good is not enough.

101 Great Goals prediction: 3-1 to the Sky Blues. Wembley woe sees last year's runners-up Tottenham miss out. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

"Keep doing what we've done in the last three games and it should be exciting". Another trophy-less season will likely be deemed another failure and expectations, as such, are high in the Premier League, with an eye too on the Champions League semi-final at the very least.

The Catalan has looked to rectify that by spending big in the summer transfer window, almost in the excess of £200million, and City have backed that spending up in pre-season winning their last three matches. I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team. "If I do get told I am playing against Watford (on Saturday) I will look to take that chance", Alexander-Arnold said. "Hopefully she doesn't understand it better than me".

"I think Manchester City be right up there challenging for the title", said Hughton.

United finished outside the top four for the third time in four seasons, but secured a Champions League berth by winning the Europa League and also tasted glory in the League Cup.

"On top of that, he wants me to enjoy it".

"I go with the same prediction as past year because I don't think Pep will accept having another season like that, he is not used to that".

However, the Brazilian blew hot and cold last season, and with Fernando joining Galatasaray, the Manchester City boss has a spot open in his squad.

But with City running out of time to sign a fourth-choice centre-back to replace Aleksandar Kolarov, Mangala may yet earn a reprieve.

City certainly haven't let up in the transfer window with numerous players going in and out of the Etihad Stadium in the summer months, with a number of familiar faces been replaced by a new roster of new faces.
