Guardiola said he had not spoken to Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgium worldwide went straight down the tunnel after being substituted in the 9-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of Burton Albion.

Despite the likelihood of losing out on De Jong, Guardiola has no qualms over the work being done by City director of football Txiki Begiristain and his team to bring in top-class players.

Pep Guardiola has acknowledged finding a long-term replacement for Fernandinho is becoming a matter of increasing urgency for Manchester City.

"No, I didn't speak with him", Guardiola said.

"We realised that last season in Carabao Cup, we saw how complicated they are", he said.

But Guardiola insisted, for all City's wealth, there were limits to even their transfer budget.

"I think they know that already, but maybe you realise more on the bench", said the Catalan. But we can not do it every season. We can imagine a different starting XI and not everyone can play. Guardiola tried to sign Jorginho from Napoli to fulfil that role last summer but the player opted to join Chelsea instead.

Guardiola claimed Brazilian Danilo earned his chance. "We put our standards high", he says.

"And they can and we do not know who can win it, we have not got a clue and it looks like being 50-50".

"There are many clubs in the world, many holding midfielders in the world, and a lot of them can play here". "I'm happy here, happy with my play and happy in the team". The players need time.

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".

Should the Belgium play maker start in Monday's match against Wolves at the Etihad Stadium, it will be only his second Premier League start of the season. But he's an excellent player.

"They are strong physically, in the counter-attack and set-pieces".

"They defend well deep, they control many areas, they have Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves, who can shoot from a long way. That's why they are doing incredibly well in the Premier League".
