City spent big in the summer on John Stones, Leroy Sane, Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito and Claudio Bravo - a combined £135 million - and are currently reaping the benefits.
However, according to an interesting report published in The Sun today, it seems Guardiola has already lined up his next batch of transfer targets.
Guardiola was heard speaking to Max Eberl
The 45-year-old was reportedly overheard talking to Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl following Wednesday night’s meeting between the two clubs at the Etihad Stadium.
And during their conversation, it’s alleged that Guardiola named three players that he’s keen to bring to Manchester in the future.
They all play for Gladbach - and Guardiola will have seen them all at close quarters following his three years in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.
A Germany Under-21 international, Mahmoud Dahoud established himself as a regular in the Gladbach starting line-up last season.
Yep, apparently Guardiola is considering bringing Eden Hazard’s younger brother to the Etihad.
Thorgan Hazard, 23, is a player with considerable talent and has already scored three goals in two appearances for his club this season.
Although a Gladbach player, Andreas Christensen is actually contracted to Chelsea.
The Denmark international is a defender with a bright future ahead of him and Antonio Conte won’t want to see the player leave Stamford Bridge for Manchester.
