It’s been a good year for Manchester City but Pep Guardiola has already made plans to strengthen his squad further this summer.
Aside from the disappointment of losing to Wigan in the FA Cup, City are on course to win the Premier League and have already won the League Cup, beating Arsenal 3-0 in the final. Hopes for the club’s first ever Champions League triumph remain alive, too.
It can be argued that there doesn’t seem to be a great need for more reinforcements at the Etihad, but Guardiola won’t want his players getting bored and fresh competition within a squad of players can keep them all on their toes.
After all, they — Gary Neville and the likes — say it’s a lot more difficult to defend a title.

Guardiola has conceded that City won’t conduct the same level of spending that they’ve had in recent windows.
“Of course we buy a lot of players and they have helped us a lot and next summer is to buy one or two players more. So our market in the summer will be cheaper,” he is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

It will be interesting to see what areas of City’s squad Guardiola looks to strengthen. Last summer it was joked about how he spent so much money on full-backs but it’s the City manager who has had the last laugh in that regards.
