Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has opened up on the club’s January transfer window plans. City had a slow start to the season, however, they have hit form in recent weeks as they are currently second in the table with 2 points behind first-placed Manchester United and one game in hand.

The only notable area of weakness for Pep Guardiola’s side during this season has been at center-forward, with both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus missing a large number of games due to injuries and COVID19 related self-isolation.

But Guardiola told beIN Sports: “We will not sign any deal during the winter transfer market.

“We did not discuss this, but we will end the season with the players that we have now.”

“This is one of our ways,” he said. “There were matches where we needed an attacker but at that time two of them were injured.

“One had been injured for a long time – Sergio Aguero. The other two had the coronavirus.

“That’s why we sometimes play in this way, other times we are forced to do that because of a pressing need.

“It’s an alternative plan, which we can rely on given the talents we have in the various positions.”
