Pep Guardiola says Manchester City must be 'careful' in pursuit of signings

City v Wolves | Aguero and Kompany update

Frenkie de Jong is also understood to have been one of the club's midfield targets but reports in the Spanish press suggest he is close to sealing a summer move from Ajax to Barcelona and Guardiola concedes it is becoming harder for clubs to secure their prized recruits.

"And when you are exhausted they can bring on two new players to do that".

But Guardiola knows Wolves will present a stiff test at the Etihad Stadium after making an impressive return to the top flight under Nuno Espirito Santo. Normally when you are involved with Madrid and Barcelona you are going to lose.

"Fernandinho's role, it's so hard to find [a similar player]", he added.

"They are strong physically, good on set pieces, have incredible players on the counter-attack, they don't just do that with two or three, they have four or five. He'll be 34 and he can not play every few days".

"A month ago I read about Ruben Neves - £100m!"

"Our wage, salary for the player is eighth, ninth or 10th in Europe, so there are eight or nine clubs where the wages are higher than what Manchester City pay".

Their arrival in Manchester before Christmas coincided with an upturn in the forward's form, and Guardiola said: "The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there".

"We try to be stable". But of course, we cannot substitute the mother and when the family can't be here, it's hard.

"We have a limit and cannot spend more so that's why we need to be careful with the players and try next season to see what we can do to improve". When we spent a lot two seasons ago, it was because the team was old - it was 30-31 years old and that's why we did it.

"But if you want one player and many, many clubs want him it is more complicated".

"You have to be quicker and more efficient". But I'm not talking about the case of the Ajax player because he is an Ajax player. "If you don't have injuries and you are satisfied with the squad, it's going well, we will play with the players we have started the season with".

He said: "Sometimes we have done it but normally when we want to buy a player it's for the next four, five six years and normally these kind of situations don't happen in this transfer window".
