Pep Guardiola confirmed that Manchester City will return to the left next summer due to concerns about Benjamin Mendy's long-term fitness.

Sportsmail understands Leicester City & # 39; s Ben Chilwell is the main target of Guardiola when they decide to make a splash and land contest for Mendy.

Mendy started training with the team this week after a new knee injury, but will not be ready for the weekend game against Huddersfield.

& # 39; We have passed well last season, also this season & # 39 ;, Guardiola said. & # 39; But that's what we think about (signing sessions) yes.

& # 39; I can not assure you that I am happy with the players I have, but we will look at that option. Mendy trains incredibly well, sometimes injuries happen. & # 39;

Guardiola had to do the majority of the past 18 months with Fabian Delph, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Danilo.

He also left this term in the midfield and wants to secure a scholarship for Fernandinho at the end of the season.

Frenkie De Jong at Ajax has been their number 1 target, while the couple from Lyon Houssem Aouar and Tanguy Ndombele are also interested in Guardiola. The boss of the city is also an admirer of Ruben Neves on Wolves, but last week she warned that they refused to spend crazy money on him.

& # 39; There are three or four that we look at, looking for that position, & # 39; added Guardiola.

& # 39; I think we need a man with physicality, fast in the head and reading spaces to attack.

& # 39; It is not easy to find a player who can do everything. Then there is the club and agent – we will see. & # 39;
