And the Mail on Sunday are reporting that Guardiola has already had talks with City chiefs over potentially making a move before next summer.

They also claim the Premier League leaders are monitoring Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl.

City want to get their business done as early as possible to have their full squad available for pre-season.

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is also among their transfer targets.

Fred is best played in front of the back four and is seen as a perfect replacement for Fernandinho.

Fernandinho, 32, is not set to leave the club but City are already preparing to fill the void when he does leave.

Weigle, 22, was linked with a move to the Etihad last year but stayed in Ukraine.

But Guardiola could reignite his interest as he is yet to buy another defensive midfielder.
