Pep Guardiola today said he would sign a new left-back ‘if it’s possible’.
But he dodged a question about Marc Cucurella.
City have seen a £30m bid rejected as they pursue the Albion star.
Cucurella is said to have submitted a transfer application today.
Speaking at his Community Shield press conference this afternoon, Guardiola said: “He’s a Brighton player, I can’t say anything else.”
Asked if he needs a left-back, Guadiola downplayed any pressing need to add to the squad.
He said: “If it’s possible, yes, if not, we’ll stay.
“Joao (Cancelo) can play there, Josh (Wilson-Esbrand), Nathan (Ake).
“I never complain about the squad I’ve had since the first season.
“What the club can do is benefit the club, not me. I support the club.”
