Pep Guardiola: Liverpool spent big after we raised the bar last season

The 18-year-old is now in the United States with Pep Guardiola and the rest of the Blues squad as they prepare for the new season - and he started the first game of the summer against Borussia Dortmund in Chicago at the weekend.

Nmecha is one of the most highly regarded prospects at the Etihad and is on the fringes of Pep Guardiola's first team squad, having three appearances for the senior side last season. That is the point.

"A lot of the players went really far in the World Cup".

"Every club does what they believe, I understand completely", said the City manager when asked about Liverpool's activity in the transfer market. "Nobody knows what will happen this season, nobody".

"He's a player for Juventus and we are not interested". To have him with us, it's great. If one player plays a lot of games, he can now have a rest - perhaps two games to see if he can recover. He's a fantastic player who can improve our team.
