Sky journalist: Euro giants reach agreement with Manchester City 26-year-old

Man City’s Vincent Kompany ready for renewed rivalry with Wayne Rooney after Everton move

West Bromwich Albion coach Tony Pulis on Friday revealed that the club had turned down a 19.7-million-euro ($23.15 million) bid from fellow English Premier League side Manchester City for Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans. Having splashed out a reported fee of £32million on the defender, City would have expected to see more consistent performances but Mangala failed to impose himself and become a solid partner alongside club captain Vincent Kompany.

Pep Guardiola is convinced his Manchester City squad is already good enough for the coming season, despite the continuing search for new players.

"Market forces dictate but we don't need to sell and we don't want to sell, so we are not desperate for the money". We have to stay with the players we have right now then we're happy. If someone comes, then we'll be happy too.

"I know how good the club works since I arrive here and we try to do our best, sometimes it's possible, sometimes not". Sometimes it's possible, sometimes not.

"I think every player is for sale at the right price".

Guardiola has denied that continually seeking out new signings could adversely affect players from the club's much-vaunted academy, with the City boss insisting those players must earn elevation to the senior squad. "They have to win that situation".

"It is like last season".

City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is closing in on a first-team return after he featured as a second-half substitute in a friendly against Girona on Tuesday.

"I talk to (director of football) Txiki (Begiristain), all the players at the club, everyone has their own opinions". "He is nearly a father again so that's why he waits here [and not travel] for a handsome moment". When you have the problems he had in the past with injuries in the last two years he has to be 100 per cent sure he is ready.
