Anderlecht's teenage sensation Youri Tielemans heads Pep Guardiola's summer shopping list - which could see Manchester City spending up to £250m in the next transfer window.
Sky Sports News HQ understands other prime targets to continue Guardiola's revolution at the Etihad include full-backs Benjamin Mendy of Monaco - plus Ryan Bertrand and Kyle Walker - along with Southampton's Virgil van Dijk and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.
A host of Europe's top clubs have been tracking 19-year old Tielemans, who made his international debut for Belgium against Netherlands in November.

In July 2013, less than three months after his 16th birthday, the midfielder made his first-team debut for Anderlecht.
He followed up that feat by becoming the youngest Belgian - and the third youngest player ever - to play in the Champions League at the age of 16 years and 148 days, when he featured for Anderlecht against Olympiakos.
Tielemans played as a deep-lying holding midfielder in his first campaign for Anderlecht, but manager Besnik Hasi then decided to push the player further forward.
The talented teenager responded by scoring eight goals in all competitions in the following season, many spectacular efforts from distance which have led to him being likened to former Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard.
