Guardiola opens up on Man City attempts to sign Chelsea's Jorginho

Guardiola opens up on Man City attempts to sign Chelsea's Jorginho

"Riyad played good in the first game", Guardiola said.

City are still on the hunt for another midfielder and remain linked with Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic, who has signalled his intention to leave the Spanish capital this summer.

"My advice for all players is they have to go where they want to go, and in the end it would have been a mistake for him and for us if he'd chose to come here when he wanted to go with Maurizio and Chelsea".

Despite not carving out a single clear chance in the first half, Guardiola only made one change at the break as Joe Hart replaced Bravo.

Wilson, who played schoolboy football for Cherry Orchard before moving to Manchester, is a pacy attacking left-back. All the best for him.

An undermanned City kicked off their pre-season with a 1-0 loss against German side Dortmund at Soldier Field in Chicago on Friday.

Donald Trump says he looks forward to second meeting with Vladimir Putin
McFaul said the president had confirmed that he entertained Putin's proposal, and the White House did as well. That moment is ripe with confusion about Trump's relationship with Russian Federation .

To date, he's played in one competitive fixture under Guardiola, who dropped Hart as City's first choice 'keeper on arrival - essentially due to him feeling his ball-playing skills were not up to his standard - and so the 75-time capped England worldwide would subsequently enjoy the last two seasons on loan, firstly with Serie A outfit Torino before temporarily joining West Ham last term.

"We decided today on Claudio and Joe".

"Nobody can doubt his quality as a goalkeeper, what he has done in the last 10-12 years", Guardiola added.

"I know it is not easy for him what happened in the last period, but he's with us and tomorrow he's going to play". We played against one of the best teams in Germany and we did many good things.

"Leroy has to accept that this decision may make him stronger". We can not forget what we've done but we start again. "We spoke - they have to come back ready".
