Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the club will not make any new signings in January as he believes that the Cityzens have a "fantastic team to fight for all the titles".

City have endured a terrible start to the domestic 2020/21 season as they find themselves placed 14th in the Premier League table after managing to secure just 12 points from their first eight games, eight behind table toppers, Tottenham Hotspur.

City were once again active in the transfer window over the summer, spending £65million and £41million on defenders, Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake, respectively while also landing Ferran Torres from Valencia for £20.8m.

When asked by Sky Sports if he will make any signings in January, Guardiola, who recently penned his own two-year contract extension as City manager, said: "No, not at all. I have a fantastic team to fight for all the titles."

While the club might not make any signings in January, City have been heavily linked with a move for Barcelona icon, Lionel Messi who would be available for free next summer should he not sign a new contract with the Catalan giants.

The club's chief operating office too recently admitted that they have the financial might to bring him to the Premier League, though it all hinges on what Messi decides to do in the near future.
