"With current prices, we cannot afford a striker"

Guardiola discards City to enter the fight for Haaland and Messi in the next summer market with the aim of replacing Agüero.


Pep Guardiola has explained Manchester City's plans for the upcoming summer market to replace Kun Agüero, who will leave the club after a decade. His team is one of those interested in Haaland and there has also been talk of the possibility that Messi will meet him again. However, Guardiola says that "today it is more likely that we will not sign a forward."

On the departure of Kun Agüero: "It was a difficult decision. We know how important it is and that it has been for the club. I want to be very clear. We are going to look for a replacement for Agüero, although it is almost impossible for someone to match the numbers he has had here. There are many options that we will not sign a forward for next season. We have enough players and we have interesting players in the quarry. Given the current situation, it is likely that we will not sign a forward. Current prices are impossible. We cannot afford it. All clubs are going to suffer, we are not going to be an exception. We have Gabriel and Ferran, we have already played with false nine ".

Injured situation: "There are five or six players that I have not seen yet because yesterday they did not have permission to enter our bubble, I will see them today"

Match against Leicester: "Leicester is a very top team. They have impressed me a lot, you just have to see the players and the squad they have."

Iheaenacho improvement: "He is incredible. The quality was there, he was a young player and I think that with Gabriel we did not have enough space for him. He is a fantastic person, we had a good relationship and I am glad to see him play well."
