His team are 23 points behind the Premier Champions.</p> <p>Pep has made it clear he wants new blood for at least one centre back:</p> <p>“We’d like to stay with the players who gave us what they did for the last decade and to be&nbsp;eternal, but we grow in years and sometimes we have to do it and replace them with new players,” Guardiola, 49, said.</p> <p> </p> <p>“We have to rebuild. It happens at clubs around the world. We have to accept it and try to take the right decisions to try to maintain the level that we have. We have exceptional players [but] after the season finishes we will reflect.”</p> <p><strong>Players at risk</strong></p> <p>Pep wants a move for Nicolás Otamendi, the 32-year-old Argentinian, and offers for John Stones who has hardly had a lookin of late.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>David Silva, the 34-year-old captain, is leaving at the end of the season and Claudio Bravo, 37, is out of contract. A full back will be pursued if João Cancelo, who has failed to dislodge Kyle Walker from the team, decides to leave.</p> <p>Guardiola admitted that Sergio Agüero, 32, and the 35-year-old Fernandinho could leave at the end of the next campaign</p> <p><strong>Pep's Wanted List</strong></p> <p>Kalidou Koulibaly, the Napoli defender, Pau Torres of Villarreal, and Benfica’s Ruben Días are among the centre halves that City are interested in.</p> <p>Guardiola also defended the club’s decision to sell Leroy Sané, one of the young stars in the squad, to Bayern Munich for £55 million after he rejected three new contract offers from City.</p> <p><strong>Liverpool v Manchester City Statistics</strong></p> <p>If Liverpool continue their present form, they will collect 106 points, which is six more than City’s record 100-point total from two seasons ago.</p> <p>If City keep averaging two points per game —as they roughly are now — they will end the campaign 29 points behind Liverpool on 77. The previous biggest gap between first and second at the end of a season is 19 points, City ahead of Manchester United in 2018.</p> <p>City’s standards have slipped against their rivals. This season they have claimed 13 points from a possible 27 against the established “big six” clubs. Last season they took 25 points from a possible 30.</p> <p>More reading see The Times</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="680" height="547" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> Klopp Liverpool FC Manchester City Pep Guardiola General Thu, 02 Jul 2020 08:27:01 +0000 faagent 46025 at Leroy Sané to join Bayern Munich for £55m <div class="field field-type-text field-field-blog-content"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Steal of the transfer summer season, Bayern Munich get their German Winger from Manchester City Leroy Sane for a sum of only £55m!</p> <p>Sané, who joined City from Schalke in 2016 for £37.1 million, will not be able to play for his new club until next season.&nbsp;<em>The Times</em>&nbsp;understands that Bayern will pay an initial fee of €49 million (£44.8 million), with three add-on clauses that add up to €11 million: one if&nbsp;Bayern win the Champions League with Sané, another if they win the Bundesliga and a third relates to individual player awards.</p> <p> </p> <p>City had placed a £137 million asking price on Sané a year ago but the club had to lower their demands as he only had a year left on his contract and because the transfer market has contracted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.</p> <p>The two sides differ on what Sané will be earning at the German champions. City sources claimed that Sané will earn an annual salary of about £20.1 million — which equates to about £385,000 per week — while reports in Germany stated that the winger’s contract is worth closer to £18 million per year. Either way, City made it clear that they would not pay Sané more than around £10 million, which meant that discussions between the club and the player broke down.</p> <p>City also had reservations about the player’s injury record. Sané has missed six months of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in the Community Shield victory over Liverpool in August.</p> <p>Football Agents Steal German Winger Leroy Sane</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_blog_image" width="659" height="367" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> football Manchester City Premier League scoccer News Wed, 01 Jul 2020 09:35:51 +0000 faagent 45990 at What if your star player has Covid-19? <div class="field field-type-text field-field-blog-content"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A third player at Brighton &amp; Hove Albion has been tested positive with Coronavirus.&nbsp; Whilst the Premiership clubs will get together to work out proposals for a re-start the question remains what happens if one or more of the players in the starting 11 develops the disease.&nbsp; Can they lawfully postpone the game or must they allowed to play behind closed doors.</p> <p>The Times today reports:</p> <p><em>The latest coronavirus case at Brighton has prompted Paul Barber, the club’s chief executive, to seek clarity on what would happen should a player test positive once competitive matches are under way.
