Guardiola reveals player that will replace David Silva at Man City


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has hailed Phil Foden as a “magician” and the natural heir to David Silva.

The 19-year-old does not enjoy the most prominent of standings at the Etihad Stadium just yet, but Guardiola is adamant that even a bid of €500million, would not be enough to lure the midfielder away.

In the latest serialisation of a book called ‘Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam’, Guardiola says: “We didn’t give Foden a new contract by accident.

“He is the only player that can’t be sold under any circumstances — the only one. Not even for 500m euros.

“Phil’s going nowhere — Phil is City. We won’t be signing anyone else for that position.

“When David Silva leaves, we know exactly who our new magician will be.”
