Manchester City bid rejected

Tough talker Vincent Kompany is relishing Everton’s visit

Manchester City have reportedly had an £18 million bid rejected by West Bromwich Albion for their defender Jonny Evans.

West Brom are thought to want at least £30 million for Evans and Tony Pulis has admitted he will not stand in the former Manchester United defender's way if their valuation is met but City are adamant they will not be held to ransom.

Also speaking today was Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, who had his say on the potential transfer.

"We try to [get] the best squad as possible for the long season". We are going to see how the market finishes.

"If we have to stay with the players we have right now, we will be happy". If someone comes we are happy too. Sometimes it's possible, sometimes not.

West Brom reject Manchester City bid for Evans
City have been scouring for a domineering presence at centre-back with moves lined up for Virgil Van Dijk and Leonardo Bonucci. People say he's not worth it, but there are so few of them around - so of course he is worth it.

"We've turned down an offer for Jonny".

British press reports said City had tabled an offer of around £18 million (R306-million) for Northern Ireland global Evans, who is 29. A move would also be beneficial for the player as he is more likely to be involved on a regular basis with Inter Milan and therefore boost his chances of being selected for the France national team in next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Mendy tweeted "bullet header" after Lewis Dunk scored an own goal in City's season-opening defeat of Brighton last weekend. "They have to win that situation". I know what the club wants. But Guardiola expects the right-back to start against Everton on Monday.

Although Guardiola said the club will act cautiously with the 26-year-old given his injury record. When you have the problems he had in the past with injuries in the last two years he has to be 100 per cent sure he is ready.

City spent more than £200 million on players over the summer, with five major new arrivals for the first-team squad.
