Pep after Dele?

Manchester City could be looking to sign Tottenham Hotspur young superstar Dele Alli this summer. The rumors were sparked by an interview from Xavi Hernández, the Barcelona legend who worked with Pep Guardiola at Barça and says that the Catalan manager will be looking at sign Alli this summer.

"I speak with Pep and I know he thinks it is important to sign English players. At the moment the best English player - and also one of the best in Europe - is Dele Alli. We are looking at a very special player.

"Technically he is the sort of player that Pep likes, the sort of player that suits the style of game that Pep likes to play. I am sure Tottenham will not want to let him go but we know Manchester City have big resources.

"I am sure in the summer he will look across Europe for players but I also expect him to look in the Premier League."

Navas back home?

City winger-slash-full-back Jesús Navas is closing in on a return to his childhood club, Sevilla, according to the club's president, José Castro, who confirmed on Tuesday that contacts have begun for the club to bring back Navas in the summer. The Spaniard runs out of his City contract in two months, and there are no indications that Pep Guardiola plans to give him a new deal.

Isco staying in Madrid?

Real Madrid midfielder Isco Alarcón, who has been heavily linked with a move to City in the summer, has agreed to sign a new contract with the Spanish giants, according to a report from Marca. Liverpool and Juventus are also interested in the Spanish international, who is now expected to stay in the Spanish capital.

City rule out Mbappé transfer?

Kylian Mbappé, the hottest prospect in football today, will not come to Manchester City this summer. According to a report from The Times, AS Monaco have placed a price tag of £110 million in the young French striker, and the Citizens do not want to spend that much money on another attacker. City will focus on their defense and are confident that Sergio Agüero and Gabriel Jesus will give Guardiola enough firepower from the striker position.
