Reports: Pep Guardiola's Manchester City Keen To Reunite With £50m Former Star

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are reportedly interested in reuniting with a former star of theirs who could cost them up to £50 million (R838 million).

Click through the gallery above to see six players City are linked with, as per various reports.

According to The Sun, the Citizens are on the lookout for another defender, and are interested in Bayern Munich stalwart Jerome Boateng, a former player of theirs who could become available in the coming months.

The Germany international left the Premier League leaders seven years ago after receiving limited game time at the club, and has since gone on to establish himself as a world-class defender.

Guardiola, who worked closely with the player at Bayern, is said to be a massive fan of the 29-year-old who helped him win three Bundesliga titles between 2014 and 2016.

Boateng is considered a versatile defender who is naturally a centre-back but can play out wide, especially on the right-hand side.

There are rumours Manchester United, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are also monitoring Boateng's situation so a bidding war could be on the cards if the Citizens do not act quickly, with Bayern believed to want as much as £50 million for the player.

Why so many faces if we talking about one player? Madrid don't need a cow that was easily exposed by Messi never. We need a defender not a bridge
