Pep Guardiola has new big-money Man City transfer target after superstar failure

Pep Guardiolareportedly has a new big-money transfer target after missing out on landing England captain Harry Kane this summer. The forward sensation had looked certain to move to the Etihad but Manchester City’s approaches were rebuffed by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

The Citizens are believed to have offered a staggering £120million for Kane, but Levy refused to budge.

Guardiola clearly has cash at his disposal and will now turn his attentions elsewhere as he chases an elusive first Champions League trophy with City.

But the Spaniard will instead look to address another problem area before going back into the market for a striker.

Guardiola is short of options at left-back and is currently monitoring AC Milan star Theo Hernandez, according to The Sun.

Benjamin Mendy began the season on the left side of Guardiola’s defence but has since been suspended by the club.

Joao Cancelo, who is more suited to the right, was selected in the position for City’s back-to-back 5-0 Premier League thrashings of Norwich City and Arsenal and was also utilised there at times last season.
