Manchester City had a busy summer transfer window which saw their marquee striker Sergio Aguero depart after which they went looking for a striker. Along the way to find the perfect replacement for Aguero, City was heavily linked to many players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, and Erling Haaland. However, none of those transfers worked out as Kane and Haaland decided to stay put at their respective clubs and Ronaldo moved to cross-town rivals Manchester United. So Pep Guardiola's search for a striker continues and recently he was seen meeting with a former player of his back when the Spaniard coached Bayern Munich.

Pep was pictured with Robert Lewandowski at the training facilities of Spanish second division side Girona, which is 47 per cent owned by the City Football Group and 16 per cent of it is owned by Pep's brother Pere Guardiola. Lewandowski was at the facilities because his national team, Poland, are currently preparing there for their World Cup qualifier match against Andorra. The two were pictured talking to each other but about what, no one except the two know, it could be about a potential transfer but it could also just be the two former coach and player catching up.
