Man City manager Guardiola prioritises Fred signing

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made finding a replacement for Fernandinho his priority this summer.

The Sky Blues won the League Cup two Sunday's ago and are close to sealing the Premier League title.

And the Manchester Evening News claims Guardiola has already started making plans for next season.

He has identified Shakhtar Donestk's Fred as the ideal candidate to replace his ageing Brazilian.

Fernandinho hasn't featured since the League Cup victory after he limped off with an injury. Ilkay Gundogan has impressed in his place, but Guardiola is said to prefer the German playing higher up the ground.

Shakhtar's £50million asking price for Fred shouldn't be a problem for the Abu-Dhabi backed City.
