Manchester City fancy a multiple raid on Barcelona. The Daily Star Sunday says new City chief Txiki Begiristain is expected to meet Pep Guardiola's agent, Jose Maria Orobigt, next week to discuss the job.

City will ask Guardiola for a wish-list of players.

They are trying to snatch wonder-kid Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona and have had enquiries about Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets rejected in recent weeks.
