A reunion with Pep on the cards?

Busquets has been one of the most underrated players in the world. He is a technically gifted defensive midfielder who shields the defence and seeks to win the ball back from the opposition before starting attacks with his pinpoint passing

According to Don Balon, Pep Guardiola is looking to raid his former club to bring Busquets to the Etihad stadium. The 29-year-old has a 200m release clause and it would be difficult for City to convince Catalans to sell such an important player.

However, Barcelona might be tempted to sell Busquets if the offer is good as they are looking to raise funds for Coutinho.

Is Evans leaving in January?

Manchester City was constantly linked to former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans in the summer window. West Brom rejected offers from various clubs including City in the summer.

Evans is not looking to renew his contract so the Baggies might be willing to cash in on their defender in the January window.

The West Brom manager admitted that contract negotiations with Evans are complicated. “He is under contract for West Brom. He knows he can have those conversations [about a new deal] with us. We will give him the best deal we can possibly go to on the financial side and length of the contract, but that might not be the whole thing with Jonny.” Pardew said as quoted by the Manchester City Evening News

Is Aguero planning to move to Madrid?Sergio Aguero is a cult figure on the blue side of Manchester. The club's all-time top-scorer scored the famous goal vs QPR which clinched the Premier League title for Manchester City. However, it is been rumoured that the Argentine does not enjoy a good relationship with Pep Guardiola as his status as the number one striker has been under threat since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.

According to Marca, Aguero is considering a move away from Manchester City due to his strained relationship with the manager. City does have a ready-made replacement in the form of Jesus and the board might be tempted to cash in on him.

According to Marca, Real Madrid is closely monitoring the situation of the Argentine International.
