Guardiola plots summer defensive rebuild; Man City could make move for English defender

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to get seriously concerned about Guardiola’s approach to defending… 

The Spaniard’s side has been stellar going forward, but at the back – they have struggled. The likes of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi have looked good in parts, but key mistakes and errors have been causing major issues.

John Stones, in particular, has been under the microscope this season – with many fans in the Transfer Tavern claiming that he is not good enough, but as of yet – Pep Guardiola has chosen to persist.

Man City’s disappointing 4-0 loss to Everton over the weekend was the latest in a line of poor performances this season, and it is clear that something needs to change at the Etihad.

It would appear as though Pep Guardiola agrees, with the Telegraph reporting that the Spaniard is plotting a significant rebuild at Man City next summer.

The Telegraph are noting that as many as 6 new players could join the club, with Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand a reported target.

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern have been toasting this news all day long, with many in the pub absolutely delighted that Pep Guardiola is looking to solve the issue. For many, the Everton loss was the breaking point – with a few calling for Pep Guardiola to step up or step out.

Whilst not a high profile player, Ryan Bertrand has arguably been one of the Premier League’s best players in recent years – and he would certainly improve the Citizen’s defence.

Man City fans – thoughts?
