Guardiola eyes transfer for Guerreiro with deal helping Man City icon Kompany



PEP GUARDIOLA is considering a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro – which could pave the way to Sergio Gomez joining Burnley.

Portugal left-back or midfielder Guerreiro, 29, is out of contract this summer and has had plenty of offers, including one from Bayern Munich.

But his versatility means he is also on Guardiola’s radar, as he seeks a replacement for Joao Cancelo, who is back from a loan with Bayern, but has no future at the Etihad.

A deal for Guerreiro would open the door for Clarets boss Vincent Kompany to return to his old club for a player he previously managed at Anderlecht.


Gomez cost £10million from the Belgian outfit last year.

However, has played only ten games and is way down the pecking order.

That has alerted Kompany, who is likely to get his man if City can recoup their outlay for the Spaniard.

A loan deal is not possible if Burnley are successful in taking City’s centre-back Taylor Harwood-Bellis – a huge success last season – for another campaign.

Guerreiro appeared 37 times for Dortmund this season.

It has been another impressive individual campaign from him, scoring six goals and adding 14 assists across all competitions.


Elsewhere, City have reportedly opened talks with Chelsea over a transfer for Mateo Kovacic.


It comes amid speculation suggesting this is FA Cup final hero Ilkay Gundogan’s final campaign with City, with SunSport revealing Barcelona are in line to make a move.
