Pep Guardiola won't be arriving on English soil for a fair few months yet, but, by all accounts, he is already plotting change at Manchester City.
Guardiola, of course, will replace Manuel Pellegrini in the dugout at the Etihad at the end of the season and it appears that he won't be hanging around in the transfer window.
In fact, AS claim that the revered coach is looking into the possibility of signing Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Bravo, 32, has enjoyed a fine period at Camp Nou since signing for the club back in 2014.
However, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen going from strength-to-strength at the Catalans, Bravo has his work cut out in order to keep his place as the club's No.1 for the foreseeable future.
Perhaps, then, that's where Manchester City and Guardiola could come in. The same report from AS claims that the experienced goalkeeper has a €40m buyout clause in his current contract, so it appears that a summer transfer could yet transpire.
It's a strange one
Guardiola may well rate Bravo highly - the report claims that Barcelona have been warned about the manager's interest in him - but a move for the shot-stopper in the next window would surely come as a surprise.
Does the incoming City boss really need a new goalkeeper in Manchester? Probably not. He will have England No.1 Joe Hart at his disposal. Hart, at 28, is five years younger than Bravo and arguably just as good.
But Guardiola knows best, of course, so there could yet be a couple of surprises in the summer.
Do you think Guardiola will swoop for Bravo? Have your say below!
