Manchester City ready to spend £150m to sign Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Chelsea target Leonardo Bonucci

October 7, 2016

Manchester City are set for another £150million summer spending spree as Pep Guardiola looks to turn them into the best side in the world, reports say.

Guardiola is keen to land Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, Chelsea target and Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci and Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

And City are ready to back him heavily next summer, according to The Mirror.

City chiefs believe Guardiola needs two transfer windows to put his perfect team in place and he also believes he needs more quality to be able to play his style of football.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has placed two new full-backs and a striker at the top of his wish list, though the chance to land Bonucci is also high on his agenda.

They will face competition from Chelsea to land the Italian, with Antonio Conte ready to launch a £60m bid.

Bellerin will also cost a sizeable fee, with Arsenal reluctant to let him leave for anything less than £40m.

A £50m sum will be needed to tempt Dortmund into selling Aubameyang, who Guardiola believes would provide serious competition to Sergio Aguero and Kelechi Iheanacho.
