Five January signings to kick-start the Guardiola revolution
Manchester City look set to open their chequebook again this January, with a few players needed to ensure Pep Guardiola’s revolution at the Etihad Stadium continues.
City spent over £150m during the summer transfer window, but they still look enormously vulnerable at the back.
Guardiola has recently allowed defenders Pablo Maffeo and Angelino depart the club on loan to join FC Girona, and along with the long-term knee injury suffered by holding midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, the Spaniard’s resources have depleted.
But who should he buy?
The persistent injuries Vincent Kompany suffers from and the increasing age of all of the team’s full-backs has left the Citizens in a sticky spot, and spending in the winter window is now a must for any chance of Premier League success.
Guardiola has shown during his short stint at City that he doesn’t stand for any nonsense, but now he must put his money where his mouth is.
Here are FIVE players Guardiola should target in January.
