Reports: Guardiola To Spend Over £100m On Brazilian & African Duo

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has assembled a star-studded squad since his arrival at the Etihad, but new reports suggest he is not done buying yet as he has now been linked with a Brazilian midfielder and an African star.

According to the Daily Mail, the Spaniard is looking to add a midfielder and a winger to his 2017/18 title-winning squad, and the players now being mentioned in that regard are Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred and Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez.

Guardiola is said to be a massive admirer of the Algerian and is expected to return for him after narrowly missing out on the forward in the January window.

Mahrez is apparently desperate to join the Citizens in the new season, and is willing to hand in a third transfer request in order to make the move happen.

The former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager also apparently has his heart set on landing Brazil international Fred.

The 25-year-old, who is also linked with city neighbours Manchester United, could be considered as a long-term replacement for his fellow countryman Fernandinho, who is now 32 years old.

Man City's Two Main Targets Revealed?

City are willing to spend just over £100 million (R1.72 billion) for the pair, according to the Daily Mail, but there is no word on whether they have put in any official bids in yet.
