Another long-serving City player, Spain midfielder David Silva, is set to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.
David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami has been suggested as a likely next stop for the 33-year-old, who will complete a decade as a City player in 2020.
Guardiola feels Silva’s decision to quit the club “is taken” but with reinforcements planned in defence – where his side have struggled badly this season – and in wide positions given the expected departure of Leroy Sane, Guardiola has ruled out bringing in a replacement for Silva as well.
“I don’t think we’re going to do anything in this position,” said Guardiola.
“Maybe I will change my mind at the end of the season but I have other priorities. Bernardo Silva can play there, Phil Foden is there, we have Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne.
I don’t think we will do anything in this position.”
