Aleix Garcia and Manu Garcia offered big Man City chance

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has added Aleix Garcia and Manu Garcia to his Asian tour squad.

Manu Garcia, an attacking midfielder, was at Ligue 1 side Toulouse last year, playing 18 times.

A more defensively-minded player, Aleix Garcia has been with City's sister club Girona for the past two seasons.

Guardiola is weighing up whether to take both away with the team as the Premier League champions jet off to China over the weekend.

Fellow youngster Manu Garcia, also a midfielder, is also in contention for the trip

They face West Ham in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Nanjing next Wednesday before playing either Newcastle or Wolves in Shanghai three days later.
