Pep Guardiola satisfied with current Manchester City squad

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the sort of players he would like to sign are not usually available during the January transfer window.
Guardiola's squad find themselves in the thick of a Premier League title race, and they are also still in the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup and the Champions League.
But Guardiola has been clear that City are unlikely to make any signings this month and - ahead of Monday's game against Wolves - he pointed out that January is not his preferred time for transfer activity.
He said: "Sometimes we have done [made January signings].
"But normally, we buy one player, it's for the next five, six years - and normally these kind of situations in this transfer window don't happen.
"For loan players, maybe it can happen, but I think the big clubs don't buy players for just five or six months, and they don't sell in that period.
"If you don't have injuries, if you are satisfied with the players, the squad you have, you go with them."
There have been reports that Kevin De Bruyne was unhappy to be taken off during the 9-0 Carabao Cup thrashing of Burton in midweek, but Guardiola said he has not spoken to the player about the matter.
Guardiola also dismissed the idea that Liverpool are under more pressure in the title race, despite their four-point advantage.
"I [would] prefer to be in Liverpool's position," he said.
