Manchester City are struggling to sign the full-backs they are after, Dani Alves shocked them by choosing PSG, Monaco keep rejecting their offers for Benjamin Mendy, and now they’re losing one they already have in the squad(!).
Kolarov is one step to go to Roma. I don’t like to work with people who don’t want to stay. Kola helped me a lot last season in terms of many, many things. But he had a big chance to go back to Rome where he was before and he spoke to me, the club and asked me to leave
City manager Pep Guardiola told reporters after his team’s 2-0 loss to Manchester United in Houston, in an International Champions Cup game.
I don’t like to stay with players who don’t want to stay. That’s why its the best option for everybody. I wish him all the best because he’s a really nice guy. We had an excellent relationship. I was very pleased to train him and I wish him and his family the best
the Catalan manager said, conscious of the fact that City’s need to sign full-backs, not just Kyle Walker who has already joined the club, is growing even bigger.
We have to buy. We don’t have another option. We don’t have full-backs, we try to buy full-backs on the right side, not just Kyle, because the other three full-backs we didn’t extend the contracts
Guardiola said, hopeful that their attempts to sign at least Mendy will have a positive result very soon.
