MAN CITY boss Pep Guardiola is lining up a double transfer to help win back the Premier League title.
The Spanish manager saw his City side surrender their crown to runaway leaders Liverpool this season and is set to dip into the owner’s pocket to try and get back on top.
And Guardiola could be given a huge £300million transfer war chest to dethrone Jurgen Klopp’s side.
A priority signing is a central defender to partner the impressive Aymeric Laporte at the back.
All faith in John Stones seems to have been lost and a potential return to Everton is on the cards.
And with Eric Garcia wanted by Barcelona and Nicolas Otamendi error-prone, reinforcements are needed.
One man who could fit the bill is Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.
The 29-year-old Senegalese international would cost around £70million but could finally fill the void left by Belgian enforcer Vincent Kompany in the heart of defence.
Another option is Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake who is almost certain to leave the Cherries after their final-day relegation to the Championship.
Legendary midfielder David Silva has bid farewell to the club after a stunning decade in the English top-flight.
Valencia wonderkid Ferran Torres could be the ideal replacement for the outgoing magician Silva.
The LaLiga side are thought to be prepared to cash in if they receive a bid in the region of £39m.
And the 20-year-old would also cover the space left by Leroy Sane’s move to Bayern Munich and is in the final year of his deal at the Mestalla.
Torres chalked up four goals and five assists in 34 league appearances this season.
The youngster has been particularly impressive in Europe, bagging two goals and two assists in just six Champions League games.
He is equally adept on either wing and could help City narrow the gap at the top of the table.
