Pep Guardiola could be forgiven for feeling a little left behind in the transfer market. 

Across the city, the Manchester City boss has had to watch his new rivals Manchester United sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer, while they are expected to complete a deal for highly-rated Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan. 

City have so far had to make do with Celta Vigo attacker Nolito, but that could be about to change drastically.

Two galacticos 

According to the Mirror, Guardiola has identified two huge transfer targets from his old stomping ground, La Liga.

Those targets are Real Madrid's Toni Kroos and Barcelona's Luis Suarez.

Of course, City would have to fork out ridiculous money to sign either, but they are one of the few clubs in Europe who have the resources to do so. 

Kroos, who knows Guardiola well having played under him for a season at Bayern Munich, has a release clause in his contract of £63million, but City may now have to pay upwards of that because the pound has fallen against the euro so significantly over the last week. 

Crazy money

And if that sounds like a lot, then Suarez' price tag is something else. Barcelona are believed to be demanding £85million to allow the Uruguay star to leave the Nou Camp, though again, Guardiola is hoping his contacts could facilitate the move. 

Suarez is represented by Guardiola's brother Pere, and that could be key to brokering a deal.

Another summer, another striker, it appears for City. In Suarez' case, however, he has more than proven himself in the Premier League, having scored 69 goals in 110 appearances for Liverpool.  

Message of intent 

Even if City were to only sign one of the superstars, it would send out a clear message of intent to their rivals. 

Chelsea are yet to sign anyone in the transfer window, while Arsenal have been underwhelming so far. 

Now, Guardiola needs to ensure City don't get left behind, as if they fail to sign any galacticos of their own, United will surely go into the season as favourites for the title.
