Guardiola opens up on Man City attempts to sign Chelsea's Jorginho

Dortmund

Mahrez, who is one of City's most high profile transfers so far this summer, will be joined in the starting line-up by goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The former Napoli midfielder looked to be on his way to City, but a last-minute approach from Chelsea changed his mind. "As soon as people come back we will know what we need for the games against Chelsea [in the Community Shield] and Arsenal". "My advice is for players to go where they want to go", he told a news conference ahead of Friday's International Champions Cup clash with Borussia Dortmund (9:05 p.m. ET, ESPN2). All the best for him'.

"We can reach anything with this squad, that's how great we are when we play as a team and work hard as a team".

'We can not forget what we've done but we start again.

The former England number one was one of the big name casualties following Pep Guardiola's arrival at Man City in 2016, with the former Barcelona boss not satisfied with Hart's ability with the ball at his feet, a key component to Guardiola's style of play. If they don't want to come it is better they don't come. If they are ready they'll help us and if not we'll wait for them.

Trump arrives in Finland for summit with Putin
A post-NATO trip to Britain, supposedly America's partner in a "special relationship", was riddled with controversy as well. The demonstrations were peaceful and crossed political party lines to protest against both Trump and Putin .

"Manchester City players and staff departed for the club's summer tour of the USA earlier (on Tuesday)", City confirmed on their official website.

Claudio Bravo and Riyad Mahrez were the only recognisable senior players in the the Citizens line-up, with most of City's first team player still on holiday.

Guardiola has challenged last season's PFA Young Player of the Year to prove his worth for both club and country by eclipsing the heights he reached in the previous campaign.

"We will try to be ready to play every game like we did a year ago".

"I was disappointed (not to sign him)", he added.
