Sergio Aguero set for decade at Man City after signing extension

Why Bernardo Silva looks set to ascend to world-class level in Kevin De Bruyne’s absence

Man City News: Pep Guardiola provides updates on Benjamin Mendy and Kevin de Bruyne

But striker Sergio Aguero is set to be included - 24 hours after signing a new £220,000-a-week contract that will keep him at City until 2021.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has been banned from driving for a year after gaining 24 points on his licence.

Guardiola, at least, believes the news that Jesus can work alongside Aguero for the next three years, on the training field if not necessarily in the same line-up, can only be good for the younger player.

"It's this competition. I insisted many times that it's completely different to the Premier League".

Brazil were below-par in the group stage before losing to Belgium in the knock-out stages with Jesus failing to score despite starting all five of his country's games in the tournament. 'I spoke with the doctors and he is telling me it's going good and well but I don't know.

Pep Guardiola has defended his players after Manchester City's surprise 2-1 home defeat to Lyon in the Champions League and says they have nothing to apologise for.

Pep also dismissed the suggestion Jesus is tired from his exploits in Russian Federation this summer, adding: "I wasn't there (at the World Cup), but he is young and that's a big challenge".

Silva is now in his ninth season as a Citizen and will go down as one of the Premier League's all-time great midfielders. You have to learn from that and improve. The game is over and the day after you never know what's going to happen.

"The players are human and have families, but reason I'm always here is the new challenges".
