Pep Guardiola: England will enjoy Thiago Alcantara

accreditation

Thiago got his Barcelona debut during Guardiola's reign before the midfielder was signed by the manager at Bayern in 2013.

Even with the departure of David Silva, Guardiola insists he has enough midfielders in his squad for the new season.

"We have in this position enough players and normally we have to move the players when we need someone in that position," Guardiola said, as per Goal.

"We have enough players in this position."

The likes of Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan will be among those vying for places alongside Kevin De Bruyne in City's creative department, although Guardiola acknowledges Thiago is likely to thrive for their title rivals.

"I'm happy to see him in England, England is going to enjoy a really good player."
