Man City boss Guardiola: No need for Silva replacement with Foden here

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists there's no reason to buy a replacement for departing captain David Silva.

Guardiola has confirmed City will not look to replace Silva in the transfer market this summer, after Phil Foden offered another glimpse of his talents.

The Englishman scored twice in last night's 5-0 thumping of Burnley, taking his tally to three goals in two games since the Premier league's restart.

"When David said it was his last year I told the board we have Phil, so we don't have to invest," Guardiola said.

"It is difficult to find a replacement like David, what he has done with this club," Guardiola said afterwards.

"Players like Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and David as well have helped us to be who we are as a team and a club.

"It is difficult to find a replacement but [in Foden], we have a young Manchester City fan who every time he plays gives us something unique and special."
