Guardiola: If De Bruyne has a problem, he knows where I am

0:35                                            Pep Guardiola says the club cannot replace the role of Gabriel Jesus' family but insists the striker is not alone

Guardiola said he had not spoken to Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgium global went straight down the tunnel after being substituted in the 9-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of Burton Albion.

Wolves midfielder and Portugal global Neves has impressed following the club's promotion, however, Guardiola insisted City can not afford the 21-year-old amid talk of a £100million fee. We spent a lot last season or two seasons ago because, and I have said it many times, the team was old - [players] 30-31 years old.

"It's not easy to find the specific quality of the players [who can play holding midfield]".

Guardiola did not reference De Jong but conceded City face a hard task beating Barca and Madrid when it comes to transfers. "He knows the Premier League, after three years together here, he knows everything and that's so important". "We know it's going to be hard when you see the other teams in the league but we know we can achieve it if we are focused and concentrate".

"But of course we cannot substitute the mother and, when the family can't be there, it's hard". No chance. You have to be quicker and more efficient.

They also want another midfielder in addition to De Jong but Guardiola is adamant that they have no intention of meeting Wolves's £100 million valuation of Neves ahead of Monday's game at home to the Midlands club. "We have a limit and cannot spend more so that's why we need to be careful with the players and try next season to see what we can do to improve". The club knows it will be more expensive for everybody and it is what it is.

Murray , agent Scott Boras and A's reps all met together in Dallas on Sunday to explore a potential deal, according to Slusser. Vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane and general manager David Forst were among the A's leading representatives.

"But I'm not talking about the case of the Ajax player because he is an Ajax player".

"There are many players, not just one if it doesn't happen".

"It's a good opportunity when the season is not going well to do something when you imagine you can do better".

He said: "Sometimes we have done it but normally when we want to buy a player it's for the next four, five six years and normally these kind of situations don't happen in this transfer window".

"I would say they are incredible, top at what they are doing. I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know".

"The big clubs don't buy big players for just six months, and it important players are not sold in this period. It's complicated, so so complicated".
