(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "I love Bayern Munich.

I was there, it's part of my life.

The people working there, I appreciate a lot.

They gave me an incredible opportunity to work in Germany in this historical club.

I have real, real friends out there.

The president, vice president and all the people.

Football is what it is.

Sometimes you know I say things the people opposite side don't like, but I know that they always do it with good intention.

VARIOUS OF MANCHESTER CITY TEAM TRAINING SESSION STORY: Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he does not expect to make many, if any, new signings before the transfer window closes.

The Premier League champions have made one big-money signing in the close season, bringing in Rodrigo Hernandez Cascante, better known as 'Rodri', from Atletico Madrid for a club record 70 million euros ($79 million dollars).

Speaking in Yokohama on the club's pre-season tour of Asia, Guardiola said he was happy with his current title-winning squad.

"Not many," the Spaniard said on Friday (July 26), when asked if any more transfer deals can be expected.

"The transfer market is so difficult and we are good enough.

Maybe zero, one or one and a half (transfers).

We will see." One player Guardiola may have to replace if Bayern Munich get their way is German winger Leroy Sane.

Bayern have made it clear they would like to take the 23-year-old to Bavaria, but Guardiola has stated his resolve to keep Sane in England.
