Man City will only make move for ‘special talent’ -Guardiola

Willian Man Utd transfer

One question for City fans is how manager Pep Guardiola will deploy Riyad Mahrez - the only significant addition to their already-impressive list of forward options during the summer transfer window.

Guardiola wanted a replacement for Yaya Toure, allowed to leave on a free transfer at the end of last season, with Napoli's Jorginho identified as a top target.

But, as Sarri prepares for the Community Shield against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, Sarri said he does not feel his new club are short-handed.

Under Sarri, Chelsea now look to be a more attacking team in a similar style to the one Guardiola currently uses at City.

"So, I'm so satisfied - all my period here, even the first year - with the squad we have".

"We would like it [if Luis stays]. We are trying to learn quickly". We saw it against in preseason against Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. "Congratulations to him [for his new contract] and thanks to him for his trust to stay with us for longer".

Chelsea have not had the best luck in the curtain-raiser losing their past three matches in the Community Shield, in 2017 and 2015 when beaten by Arsenal and 2012 when Man City got the better of them.

But the 21-year-old striker came in for criticism in his homeland after five goalless appearances at Russian Federation 2018 as Tite's side bowed out against Belgium at the quarter-final stage - a 2-1 defeat that began with City colleague Fernandinho scoring an own goal.

"Yes, we were close, but in the end Jorginho made a decision to stay with Sarri", Guardiola said.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately". Maybe it was a bit late to announce that but if you don't want to come, don't come. "England is going to discover an exceptional holding midfielder".

Others will be missing, however, with Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling not due to start training until Monday after the World Cup delayed their summer break.

"First of all, I'm looking forward to playing at Wembley, because it's my first time", Sarri said. "I am so happy he came here".
