Man City Transfers: 8 Players Pep Guardiola Will Bring To Etihad

11. Kingsley Coman (Juventus)

Despite being only 19, Kingsley Coman has been around the block, with PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich on his playing CV already and he's proved himself to be one of the hottest talents in Europe. Pep Guardiola will know all about him already, of course, having brought him to Bayern Munich on a two year loan deal from Juventus. He has so far made 19 appearances for Bayern, scoring 4 goals and assisting 2 more and it's clear his star is rising. With Jesus Navas stuttering, Samir Nasri struggling with injuries and City over-reliant on David Silva even when he's not 100%, they need more creative options, and he's likely to cost less than someone like Ross Barkley. Guardiola will have to hope that his former club don't follow through on their option to sign the Juventus man for a further ‚21m on top of the ‚7m they've paid for his loan deal (according to the Mirror), and equally that they'd let him out of his two year deal. If not, then Barkley would be a very talented back up option.
