  • 0:35                                            Pep Guardiola says the club cannot replace the role of Gabriel Jesus' family but insists the striker is not alone

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City "are not going to pay £100m for a holding midfielder" such as Rúben Neves of Wolves or any other similar footballer to provide competition for Fernandinho.

City have been linked with 21-year-old Ajax and Netherlands sensation Frenkie de Jong, who is also the subject of interest from Barca, Madrid and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain. When you are exhausted in the last minutes, they put on new players. He has incredible relationship with the Brazilian guys, like Danilo, Fernandinho, Bernardo, many, many players here.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss added: "Specifically with Fernandinho's role, it's so hard to find".

Discussing the importance of squad depth ahead of Monday night's Premier League visit of Wolves, Guardiola told press: "Everybody is important".

Although Fernandinho will be 34 by the end of the season Guardiola said City do not now have the finance to buy a replacement. But, of course, for the next season it's an important target to find.

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.

"There are many holding midfielders in the world".

Guardiola, who has deployed John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan in a holding midfield role in recent games, said: "If you are the only one who wants a player, it is easy. There are [players] but majority are under contract", Guardiola said. A month ago, I started reading - "Ruben Neves, £100 million". He'll be 34 and he can not play every few days. That is not going to happen, we are not going to pay £100 million for a holding midfielder. I am in touch with the CEO [Ferran Soriano], we have a limit.

Despite the likelihood of losing out on De Jong, Guardiola has no qualms over the work being done by City director of football Txiki Begiristain and his team to bring in top-class players. Of course, in 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. "I didn't speak with him so that one time I can not say what he thinks because I don't know".

"But I'm not talking about the case of the Ajax player because he is an Ajax player".
