Pep: Why I Won't Buy New Players In January

The Citizens had a relatively quiet transfer window before the season got underway, having only brought in Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.

City remain on course to defend their title after an impressive start to the Premier League campaign, but Guardiola feels they have enough players in the squad.

No. In January, no window," Guardiola told a news conference, according to reporters.

"We are not going to spend anything. I am so happy with the squad, people are coming back so no, no.

"It's much, much, much better, of course [not to have to buy in January], but when we created the squad at the beginning of the season it was not to go to the January [window] except if we have problems.

"But I have a deep squad and a lot of players cannot play when I trust them a lot. They believe I don't like them but that is not true, I trust a lot in all the players, all of them.

"It's a joy to be with them but it is what it is, when there are some injuries another one is going to play. If not, you have a few players in the academy that maybe are going to help us in a few moments or a few minutes. We are not going to go to January in the market, no way."
