Pep Guardiola wants to splash out £200m on four new players ahead of Manchester City's latest Premier League title defence in 2019-20, according to a report.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly hoping to add £200m worth of new talent to his squad ahead of next season.

The Citizens became the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League title this season and they could become the first English club ever to win a clean sweep of major domestic honours should they beat Watford in Saturday's FA Cup final.

According to the Daily Mail, plans are already in place for the summer transfer window as Guardiola does not want to rest on his laurels.

As part of his freshening-up project, it is claimed that two new midfielders, a striker and a centre-back have been targeted.

Atletico Madrid ace Rodri and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic, valued at £60m and £50m respectively, are believed to be among those on City's radar.

Guardiola will balance his squad by getting rid of players, too, with Nicolas Otamendi, Fabian Delph and Eliaquim Mangala all supposedly facing uncertain futures at the Etihad Stadium.
