16 City players featured at the World Cup.
"We have Fernandinho and Ilkay Gündogan who can play in this position [holding midfield], and Aleks (Zinchenko) can also play there".
"It would have been a mistake for him if he came and he wanted to go to Chelsea with (new manager) Maurizio Sarri". "English football has signed an exceptional player". If they are ready they'll help us and if not we'll wait for them.
"Over the next 11 days, we will play Borussia Dortmund at Soldier Field in Chicago, Liverpool at New York's MetLife Stadium and Bayern Munich in Miami's Hard Rock Stadium". "We tried, but at the end all my advice for the players is that they have to go where they want to go. You never know what will happen in the future but we'll see", Zinchenko said.
He last played for City in a Champions League qualifier against Steaua Bucharest in August 2016 having been axed by Guardiola following his arrival in Manchester two years ago.
"You can slot him into any big team and as much as the focus and the rumours continue to be about Premier League clubs, I think you can put him in nearly any club and he finds a spot".
"If he decides to go to Chelsea for the reasons he has explained or will explain, then all the best for him".
"Since I was little I was someone who always enjoyed challenges and for me this is just a huge challenge, professionally and personally". He's training like a young guy of 18 years old. "He is with us".
