RUMOURS: Guardiola to raid Barcelona for Man City signings

Sergio Busquets and Neymar are both targets for the Manchester City manager-in-waiting, with a £150 million double bid in the offing, according to reports

Incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wants to sign both Sergio Busquets and Neymar from Barcelona, according to the Daily Mail.

City are prepared to back Guardiola in the transfer market when he arrives in England and they are set to table a £150 million double offer for the pair, both of whom have contracts that are set to expire before 2019.

Neymar would subsequently become the world's first £100m player, with Lionel Messi considered an unrealistic target for the Premier League giants.

Busquets, meanwhile, would cost around £35m and is believed to be willing to work under Guardiola once more, as he regards the Catalan as a footballing father.
