Jose Mourinho has prioritised signing a new left-back this summer as Manchester United's next priority in the transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.
Carrick, as the new club captain at Old Trafford, is hoping to get his hands on further trophies, with United "stronger" than they were following another summer of investment.
"There are obviously bigger competitions than others, but we will certainly be fighting on all fronts to win as much as we can".
"In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals has hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now". I'm 24 now but when you are on the pitch there is no age.
Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up.
United scored the least goals of the seven teams to qualify for Europe from the Premier League last season at 54, 32 fewer than the highest in Tottenham. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.
"But it was a very good performance from Nemanja". We're here to do great things.
"We added three players as you know - one defender, one midfielder and one attacking player, but for this beginning of the season we lost important players too", the former Chelsea manager added.
"We just develop that and we played with it in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think LA Galaxy, because it is something we are maybe going to do during the season".
"Mistakes will happen and we'll be up against teams this season who are better teams than us and have better players than us".
Pep Guardiola believes that top clubs are forced to pay over the odds for quality players but says the premium is even greater when dealing with Premier League clubs.
