Could they pull this off?
Manchester City are planning a world-record move to sign Tottenham star Dele Alli.
Tottenham are desperate to keep hold of their man, who was Premier League Player of the Month for January, but City have the money to perhaps tempt them to sell.
Guardiola is set for a major clearout of his ageing squad at the end of the season and wants to bring in more homegrown players. However, they will face tough competition from Real Madrid, who are also interested in signing the attacking midfielder.
The current world record fee is the £89million Manchester United paid for midfielder Paul Pogba next summer.
