The ex-Malaga boss promised City fans two new strikers and a new style of play.
He said: “We have two strikers and we need another one. We need a very good squad. Next week we will see about different players (in the current squad). We will try to bring with the best players from all parts of the world.”
On the style of play, he said: “One of the reasons I am here is for the way we play. Man City fans will see a different way of playing than they have seen in other years.
“I’m sure we will play an attractive team. We will try to be an attractive team.”
