The former midfield maestro is overly convinced the Citizens will become the best side in the world.
Manchester City will rule Europe like Barcelona did under Pep Guardiola, says Camp Nou legend Xavi.
Xavi has warned City's rivals their record-setting 2017-18 season (in which they won the title with 100 points and by a 19-point margin) was just the beginning.
“Pep will only improve Manchester City,” Xavi, who won two Champions League crowns and three La Liga titles playing under Guardiola, is quoted saying by The Express. “People were impressed at how they won the title last season — but there will be more.
“He’s always looking to improve, always looking to better the team. The next target will be the Champions League and under him I think they will do it. He built something at Barcelona that will always be remembered in football history - he can do the same in Manchester.”
He added: “In football, it’s not just what you achieve but how you achieve it. Manchester City are playing great football - and I can guarantee that the players will be enjoying training sessions as well as the games.
“They will be getting more touches on the ball than they did before Pep - and that’s not just the attacking players but all of the team - he likes the whole team to play football.”
