Pep Guardiola said Kevin De Bruyne "knows where I am" if he has a problem with having been substituted in Manchester City's thrashing of Burton Albion on Wednesday.

Neves, 21, has established himself as one of the most promising central midfield players in European football since starting out at Porto and signing for Wolves in 2017.

"I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know".

Champions Manchester City will aim to cut Liverpool's lead back to four points as they resume their title chase by hosting Wolves on Monday.

"But if you want one and many, many clubs want him it's more complicated, especially if it's Madrid or Barcelona", Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's Premier League clash with Wolves.

But most importantly, the 21-year-old is a tactically astute midfielder, who shouldn't find any difficulties in adapting to Pochettino's front-footed build-up and aggressive approach in the final third - making him a tailor-made fit for the Lilywhites.

Guardiola tried to sign Jorginho from Napoli to fulfil that role last summer but the player opted to join Chelsea instead. He knows the Premier League and, after three years together here, he knows everything and that's so important.

Neves is among a number of candidates that City are considering. Of course, all departments in the club, we have in every position four or five or six options - depending on age, what we believe and, of course, the price.

"Our wage bill for the players is eighth or ninth or 10th in Europe, so there are eight or nine clubs where the wages are higher than what Manchester City pay".

In the meantime, Guardiola will hope Ilkay Gundogan can fill in if needed.

Guardiola has been asked numerous times if City might try to add to the squad during this month's transfer window but he remains adamant that will not happen.
