Guardiola bringing Barcelona style to Manchester City, claims Toure

The City manager also revealed that German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who has been out injured since last December, was close to making his eagerly-comeback, with the friendly fixture at Girona on August 15 being earmarked as a potential date for his return to first-team action.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is moving for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets. "We want the fans to enjoy it and we try to do our best".

The Portuguese midfielder emerged as one of European football's most sought-after players last season during Monaco's march to the French league title and semi-finals of the Champions League.

They play Girona three days after starting their Premier League campaign - against Brighton on Saturday - and Gundogan could feature in that match, although Guardiola is adopting a cautious approach because of the long-term nature of the player's injury.

Gundogan endured a hard first season at City due to injury, the 26-year-old missing the first four matches of the season due to a dislocated kneecap, and hasn't played since December due to a knee ligament problem.

Guardiola has hailed the Portugal international's passion for football, and predicted that Silva will be an important player for the Citizens in the upcoming season.

'We don't have any more time to learn. He has to be strong but, of course, his quality is flawless for the way we want to play. We have to do it as soon as possible and be sharp and ready to play'.

Onda Cero says City have approached Barca about a price for Busquets, who has spoken in the past of hoping to play for Guardiola again. I think I'm lucky because I used to play under Pep at Barcelona and I know what he wants. "In those terms, we're so happy".
