For Manchester City it is just their first match in the International Champions Cup 2016. Their first scheduled match versus city rivals United has been suspended due to heavy rain.
Borussia Dortmund trying to deal with exodus of players
Borussia Dortmund has to deal with their yearly exodus of players. This summer German international defender left the club on a free transfer to rivals Bayern Munich and Henrik Mkhitaryan left for Manchester United. And lastly Ilkay Gündogan who left for opponent in this match Manchester City.
Pierre-Emeric Aubameyang is the next player in line to make a move. The striker has been linked to other clubs already for months and if the right bid comes around Dortmund might be tempted to also sell their main striker.
Borussia Dortmund did manage to seal the transfer of French talent Dembele as a replacement for the departed players. With many European top clubs interested in the young striker, Dortmund turned out to have tabled the best proposal.
A more surprising signing from Borussia Dortmund is Barcelona defender Bartra. The Spanish defender didn’t see a lot of perspective at his former club and decided it was time to move on.
Next in line to re-join Borussia Dortmund is Mario Gotze. The German international left Dortmund in 2014 for Munich but never managed to become an undisputed starting-XI player. Rumours state Gotze is on the verge of going to Borussia Dortmund for a transfer fee of €25 mil.

So far Pep Guardiola has not been that active yet on the transfer market. Until now the only transfers worth mentioning are striker Nolito who joined from Celta de Vigo and Ilkay Gündogan from Borussia Dortmund.
Currently a slew of players are being linked with a move to Manchester City. The most recent names are Tony Kroos from Real Madrid and Leroy Sane from Schalke 04.
