The Citizens' first new arrival ahead of the 2017/18 season was ex-Monaco attacker Bernardo Silva – a player who proved his quality in the previous campaign.

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.

"I'm so grateful – thanks so much to the club for picking him up," the Spaniard said, according to ESPN.

"Bernardo played his first minutes and he was immediately ready to play. Intelligent players don't need time to be involved in the way we want to play.

"Bernardo is a guy who loves football, who lives 24 hours thinking about the game. I like that. He is a humble guy – he's so intelligent, which is a huge quality.

"Close to the box, he has the quality to score a lot of goals and he's a fighter too, so he's going to help us during the season."
