"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start". We create always more than the opponent'.
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.
The Citizens completely changed the back four over the summer as Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy all joined, while Bernardo Silva was brought to reinforce the front line.
"We were favourites last season and missed out by 15 points so being favourites this season means nothing". I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because, of course, he was injured for a long time.
Guardiola actually enquired about Busquets last summer but a move never materialised, and it will surely be a hard task again this summer after Barca lost Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in a world record transfer.
Pep explained City's heavy investment, saying, "We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we made a decision to put energy in the team for the next five, six years".
"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.
"That is why the club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed and we tried to do our best, not just for next season but the future".
"I think it is unsustainable".
Chris Hughton insists Brighton can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle. We are here to win the games and titles.
"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are. But we try to win the game".
The Portuguese midfielder emerged as one of European football's most sought-after players last season during Monaco's march to the French league title and semi-finals of the Champions League. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".
