PEP GUARDIOLA has promised Manchester City will be more of a force in the Premier League this season than they were in his first year in charge.

Guardiola is preparing his plans for the new campaign having found life in England tougher than expected during his first 12 months in the country.

And he insists City will be much better this time round than the third place finish they achieved last year.

Guardiola said: “We will be better, like Everton will be better. We will be better next season.

“During eleven months together it is a process, you can enjoy it, new games new actions – the opponents always play well.
“The beautiful thing is the process. I was so happy last season in Manchester being there, it’s why I can’t wait for July to start again.”

City have moved quickly in the transfer market this summer as they look to hand Guardiola the strongest squad possible to challenge at home and in Europe.

Having finished 15 points behind Chelsea in the title race the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss knows he has ground to make up.

But the club have backed him by by splashing out £43million to bring in Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva to add more creativity to his side.

They then coughed up a further £35m to sign Benfica goalkeeper Ederson in a bid to solve one of their biggest problem positions last season.

The spending is unlikely to end there, with City becoming increasingly confident they can sign Arsenal’s unsettled star Alexis Sanchez ahead of Bayern.

And they are working hard to agree a fee with Tottenham for England defender Kyle Walker to replace Pablo Zabaleta, who has joined West Ham on a free transfer.

There is even a hope they can sign former Barca star Dani Alvez who is trying to force his way out of Juventus.

Guardiola admitted he was pleased with the transfer business done by his club so far.

He added: “I am happy. The club have made a good effort.”
