Pep Guardiola confirms Danilo interest as Man City eye up to four more signings


The Citizens have already brought Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes and Kyle Walker to the Etihad, but more are expected.

Pep Guardiola still wants to make as many as four more summer signings, with the Manchester City manager confirming interest in Real Madrid right-back Danilo.

An outstanding start to life in the Premier League last season soon tapered off as the Spaniard’s first campaign at the Etihad Stadium ended trophyless.

Guardiola has overseen major surgery ahead of the 2017-18 season, with a number of players heading for the City exit in a summer that has seen Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes and Kyle Walker arrive.

City are not done there, though.

Guardiola refused to rule out moves for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez or Monaco full-back Benjamin Mendy, but confirmed an interest in Brazil international Danilo.

“We have many options for people, players coming, but until the deal is done out of respect for the other clubs I cannot say absolutely anything,” the City boss said.

“But (Danilo) is one option we have.

“I said he’s a player from Real Madrid, so we are talking with not too much players but three or four players to try, if possible, to join us for not only the next season but the next three, four, five years because all of them are so, so young players.

“We need that, refresh with the spirit of the new players. It is good for them, for the old players like Vincent (Kompany) and the other ones here in the club.

“It is going to help us to rebuild a little bit more the club and we’ll see.”
