Cape Town - Pep Guardiola has confirmed Manchester City are in the market for a new centre-back this summer.
The Premier League champions are hoping to find a replacement for Vincent Kompany, who left the club after last season's treble success.
Guardiola has already strengthened his side with the signings of Rodri and Angelino and now appears to be turning his attention to the heart of the defence.
City and rivals Manchester United have been linked with a move for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire throughout the off-season, with the Red Devils reportedly closer to sealing the deal.
The Spaniard admits they are looking but insists they will be able to cope if they do not secure any targets over the next few weeks from any of the big leagues around the world including the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A or the Bundesliga.
"We will see," Guardiola said.
"We are looking for some names but at the same time we have three centre-backs who can play there, and we have two young players in the second team who can help us.
"We shall see if the market is possible and the club believes we can spend that money, but if they don't, we shan't spend it."
