Manchester City bid rejected

Man City’s Vincent Kompany ready for renewed rivalry with Wayne Rooney after Everton move

Guardiola remains keen to strengthen his defensive options and will pursue a deal for West Brom centre-back Jonny Evans despite seeing a £18m bid rejected by the West Midlands club. Having splashed out a reported fee of £32million on the defender, City would have expected to see more consistent performances but Mangala failed to impose himself and become a solid partner alongside club captain Vincent Kompany.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly chasing a Premier League superstar who is also said to be a target for Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

Guardiola said: "We try to do [build] the best squad as possible for the long season".

"Market forces dictate but we don't need to sell and we don't want to sell, so we are not desperate for the money".

"Every player is for sale at the right price", Pulis said earlier today, conceding that Evans could go if City are willing to pay that price. If someone comes, then we'll be happy too. And we try to do our best.

"We've turned down an offer for Jonny".

John Williams, the West Brom chairman, previously worked for City and has maintained good relations with the Manchester club, who recognise he is a tough negotiator.

"It is like last season". They don't play in the first team just for the fact they are in academy.

"I know how well the club works since I've been here". But Guardiola expects the right-back to start against Everton on Monday. "Barcelona will wake up and Catalonia and Spain will show again what a lovely country it is", former Barcelona FC coach Guardiola said in the press conference before the upcoming match against Everton.

City spent more than £200 million on players over the summer, with five major new arrivals for the first-team squad.
