Sometimes life is unfair, especially if you are a Man United fan.

After seeing your team put in a limp effort to go out of the Champions League to Sevilla, your eternal neighbours are romping their way through Europe and could win the title in your backyard.

And now there is news that Man City are targeting a new cohort of stars that could make them unstoppable next season.

Pep Guardiola, unsatisfied with potentially becoming the earliest ever Premier League champions, has sent his note upstairs to the board to target four of the most brilliant talents in world football.

And it is in a very specific order.

While Riyad Mahrez was transfer target number on in January, the Algerian may have feared his chance had gone with a fresh programme of stars on the menu in the summer.

Although he has slipped down Mahrez is still on Pep’s list.

But the other three names will make City almost untouchable if they can secure all of them..

Look away now Chelsea fans because, according to Goal, Guardiola has made Eden Hazard his number one target.

The Belgian would slot in perfectly in front of his compatriot Kevin De Bruyne, making up a front three with Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus. Phwoar.

City are also aiming to swoop on Liverpool and Arsenal (is that still a thing?) to bring in Monaco flyer Thomas Lemar.

Last on the list is Bayer Leverkusen’s breakthrough talent and potential England boy Leon Bailey.

OK it’s a stretch to see him playing for England one day but with nine goals and five assists in 22 league games this season you can see him fitting in at City with no trouble.

Let’s just give them every title until 2020 now.
