However, Italy worldwide Jorginho followed Maurizio Sarri to Sunday's Community Shield opponents Chelsea, and Guardiola is ready to give a chance to 20-year-old Brazilian Luiz, who joined from Vasco da Gama in a £10 million move last summer.
"I am happy that he is here in the Premier League", Guardiola said.
"It's the Community Shield, the players know I'll prepare like it was the best final we have to play, so seriously, to try to know as much as possible about Chelsea, right now, and Hudson-Odoi, the new winger - he's so fast", Guardiola said. I think we need something, but maybe only one player.

In this morning's media watch we hear from the opposition ahead of Sunday's Community Shield match, a word from Tosin Adarabioyo on his loan move to West Brom and predictions for the new Premier League campaign.
The Wembley clash with last season's runaway Premier League winners will give Sarri a taste of what to expect over the next nine months. Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too. I think it will be a good game.
Maurizio Sarri has revealed Pep Guardiola warned him of the difficulties in making the move to English football when the pair met over dinner in Italy this summer.
