Pep Guardiola confirms Manchester City rivalling Chelsea for Real Madrid defender Danilo

Manchester United's manager Jose Mourinho speaks at a press conferenece following a training session in Los Angeles

Manchester City and Real Madrid have completed a deal for the transfer of Brazilian full-back Danilo, thought to be worth an initial €30m, say reports.

Chelsea has made moves to sign the 26-year-old but is wary of paying over the odds while they are also running parallel negotiations for striker Alvaro Morata who is their priority.

All in all, Marca seem pretty convinced Danilo will be a Manchester City player soon.

Moves for Monaco's Benjamin Mendy and Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal remain in the offing, with Guardiola expecting "three or four" more new signings.

"You know my opinion on Sergio, " Guardiola said.

Wilfried Bony, who spent last season at Stoke, also looks to be on his way out, but Guardiola insists the only reason he is absent from City's American tour is due to injury.




Alexis Sanchez is one of Manchester City's top targets. "I said many times last season and I have not changed a word of what I said".

The manager was referring to a buy-back clause for the player.

"No", he said. "We go with Ederson, Claudio and the young players". "His behaviour, I've never saw a guy like him (before)". Maybe next week or in the next ten days it is going to finish.

"He is close to making a deal, a transfer and he chose to stay in Manchester".

Guardiola bought Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur last week, making the player the most expensive defender in history in the process, but the Spanish tactician still needs more reinforcements at the back after letting Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy leave for free following the expiry of their contracts. It was a little bit of a problem.

"We are talking with not too much players, with three or four players to come and join us", he added.
