Pep Guardiola has handed in his transfer wishlist, as he aims to bolster his ranks to defend the Premier League title next season.

According to reports, Guardiola will be handed a £200 million transfer kitty in the summer, and already has an idea of whom to spend the money on.

Sky Sports News have claimed that Thiago Alcantara and Kylian Mbappe are amongst the players the Spaniard would like to see at the Etihad next season.

Thiago is a firm favourite of Guardiola’s, with the pair having worked together twice in the past – at Barcelona as well as Bayern Munich.

The report claims that Thiago could be a central figure to a new look midfield consisting of himself and Ilkay Gundogan, and is seen as a perfect addition to an ageing midfield consisting of David Silva, Fernandinho, and Yaya Toure, who are all above 30 years of age.
