Pep Guardiola eyes Juan Bernat

Pep Guardiola eyes Juan Bernat

Man City boss Pep Guardiola wants to sign Bayern left-back Juan Bernat, reports AS.

Bernat, 23, is one of Guardiola’s main transfer targets ahead of next season and preliminary negotiations to bring the Spaniard to the Etihad have already started, although Bayern will not make it easy.

Guardiola has already signed Bernat once – he was in charge at Bayern when the defender moved from Valencia to the Bundesliga club in 2014 – and he is keen on a reunion in Manchester.

Bernat, who is valued at around £18m, is under contract until 2019.
