It’s been relatively busy on the City front, and here’s your round-up of today’s City news:

City are back! Tonight saw City return to action and play under the watchful eyes of Pep Guardiola. It was ‘typical City’ fashion which saw us lose to a deflected goal and a referee assist, but there were certainly positives to take from the game:

Two of the starters tonight were latecomers into the pre-season squad due to complications, those being Kelechi Iheanacho and Oleksandr Zinchenko :

Could City be ready to fork out a large sum on another wonderkid? It certainly looks like it might be the case. It is reported that City are willing to offer around £26m for 19-year-old Gabriel Jesus:

How about this for a goal? City’s young winger, Patrick Roberts, grabbed his first Champions League goal in Celtic’s victory tonight:

There were more reports on the Rulli saga today from Mundo Deportivo and it’s complicated to say the least, so we simplified it down slightly:

Álvaro’s back… in the Premier League! ‘The Beast’ has returned to England on loan to Middlesbrough:

Kroos in? The Mirror have reported that the deal is not necessarily dead and could still happen:

Pep’s not giving many details away in regards to a move for Leroy Sané and claims City “don’t have many possibilities to get him”:

And finally, talking of Pep, he’s quite happy with the performance tonight and why wouldn’t he be? We managed more pressing in Munich that we had witnessed under the whole Pellegrini era – nice one Pep:
