It seemed like the chance to take these players on loan had gone for clubs a couple of weeks ago by Sky Sports have today revealed Pep Guardiola is still considering what to do.

Guardiola also spoke of his disappointment in missing out on transfer target Jorginho after the Italy midfielder joined Chelsea on a five-year deal last weekend.

"It would have been a mistake for him if he came and he wanted to go to Chelsea with Maurizio Sarri". We tried, but players have to go where they go. "English football has signed an exceptional player. I know it is not easy for him, [but] we will try and find a solution", the Spaniard is quoted by BBC Sport as saying.

Mahrez - a £60million signing from Leicester City - showed glimpses of his quality for the Premier League champions, nearly equalising via a free-kick on the stroke of half-time after Dortmund's Mario Gotze converted a 28th-minute penalty.

Hart is on City's pre-season tour of the United States, and played the second half of their 1-0 defeat by Borussia Dortmund in Chicago on Friday. Eric Garcia is 17 or 18 and played like he is 24 or 25 and Riyad played good in his first game.

Hart spent last season on loan at West Ham, however, the former England number one is in the squad as he searches for a permanent move away.

"Joe is our player".

Guardiola said Sane's World Cup disappointment could "make him stronger".

City play Chelsea in the Community Shield on 5 August before opening their league campaign at Arsenal a week later.

And the former Leicester City player is looking forward to a hard game; Unai Emery's first Premier League outing after he succeeded Arsene Wenger at the end of last season. We of course prepared to win but it's normal [not to win games] in this part of the season - it just prepares the team. "I can't say why certain decisions were made".
