Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has added Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets to his completed transfer wishlist, according to a report.
The Citizens are expected to strengthen their squad in January, despite boasting an 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League following a record-breaking run.
Guardiola will reportedly use next month’s window to bring in central-defensive cover, with Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk his top target, while Alexis Sanchez is expected to join from Arsenal as a free agent at the end of the campaign.
A third player has now been targeted by the City chief to turn his side into a dominant force in European football, as the Daily Star claims that defensive midfielder Busquets is also wanted.
City are said to be willing to pay up to £160m to bring in Van Dijk, Busquets and Sanchez over the next two transfer windows, with the Chilean to be offered wages of £60m over a five-year contract.
Yaya Toure will be allowed to leave the Etihad Stadium during the summer, meanwhile, bringing his eight-year stint with the club to an end.
