Pep Guardiola hoping to find a solution for 'professional' Joe Hart

  • Fred Jorginho transfer news

Brazil global Fred was linked with City but instead joined rivals Manchester United for £52million earlier this summer.

"It is what it is", Guardiola told reporters, a day after his Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho complained about having a thin squad for pre-season training.

But in a disjointed game that was more about dusting off the cobwebs of the summer break, the £60 million club-record signing offered a glimpse of why Pep Guardiola chose to renew, and win, his pursuit of the Algerian winger.

City were reportedly angry with Napoli - the Manchester club feeling Jorginho was pushed to turn down the Etihad Stadium for Stamford Bridge.

"No, we're not disappointed, We tried".

'For the guy, it would have been a mistake for him and for us if he had made a decision to come here when he wanted to go with Maurizio (Sarri) and Chelsea. English football received an exceptional player at the end. If they are not mentally and physically ready, they won't come back. We will try and find solution for him. Fabian Delph too. Two players here - Douglas Luiz and Claudio Gomes - can do it.

Zinchenko spent much of last season as an emergency left-back following the cruciate knee ligament injury suffered by Benjamin Mendy.

He already has interest from several clubs this summer.

Chelsea are considering a surprise move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart to replace Thibaut Courtois, Mike McGrath of The Sun reports.

He was immediately sent out on loan to Serie A side Torino, before going out on loan again last season to West Ham. "The courage, intensity and desire to play was very good". "If not, he will stay here".

Mahrez, 27 years old, has made the move to the Etihad in a £60m deal as Guardiola looks to mould the tricky winger into the ideal player to push Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane for their starting positions in the side.

"I know it's not easy for him given what's happened in the last period".

Guardiola said: "What happened last season was a effect of the work we did two seasons ago".
