Manchester City have been simply sensational under the guidance of Pep Guardiola once again in the current campaign, but they just didn’t have the answers at Stamford Bridge today as they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea.
The Citizens may look to strengthen in the January transfer window to boost their chances of securing silverware in the second half of the campaign. Although, it appears as if City won’t be moving for a possible target, as according to the Standard, Guardiola has ruled out a move for Eden Hazard.
Pep Guardiola ruled out a move for Eden Hazard but did admit the Belgian is one of the best players in the world.
Interestingly, Hazard said this week he was the missing ingredient for the Premier League champions but the Manchester City boss insists a transfer is out of the question.
“That is not going to happen. I am agreeing with him. He said I’m so good and I am agreeing with him.
“Switch on the TV and look at him. You realise his qualities. He is one of the best players in the world.”
Eden Hazard is one of the best players in world football at this moment in time, and he could easily take Manchester City to another level if he joined.
But, it looks as if Guardiola won’t be bringing him to the Etihad as he has shut down a potential move for the Belgian, who is valued at £135 million (by Transfermarkt).
Nevertheless, the Citizens still have a strong enough squad to secure a second successive title.
