- Manchester City manager says he could promote from within
- He also points to ‘economic problems in world football’
Pep Guardiola has claimed Manchester City may promote from within rather than sign an expensive, high-profile replacement for their outgoing record goalscorer Sergio Agüero this summer.
This week it emerged that Agüero, who has scored 257 times for the club, is to leave the Etihad Stadium when his contract runs out in June. That prompted a flurry of rumours, suggesting that Erling Haaland has been joined on Guardiola’s shopping list by Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappé, but City’s manager endeavoured to dampen such speculation on Friday.
