Manchester City's Pep Guardiola reveals Barcelona return plans

Manchester City's Pep Guardiola reveals Barcelona return plans”

The Belgium midfielder signed a new contract in January, which keeps him at the club until 2023 and Guardiola denied telling a Spanish journalist about his buyout clause. "The journalist asked me if we would sell for 250 million and I said "no".

De Bruyne, 27, is injured, though Guardiola confirmed the player is making good progress and was still on course for a return before Christmas. I'm sorry, he's not for sale. "He's very good. He's a very dynamic player".

City have hardly struggled without De Bruyne, but compared to last season's cruise to the title, a draw at newly-promoted Wolves and a tight 2-1 victory at home to struggling Newcastle have represented a challenging start to the campaign.

He also said he envisages finishing his coaching career in Barcelona's academy.

"If given the opportunity, I want to coach a national team", he said. "I want to try it". Argentina? No, thank you.

Pep Guardiola paid tribute to the midfielder, who is now sidelined with a knee injury, in a recent interview with Universo Valdano.

Guardiola is happy with the strength and fitness of his squad after noting a month ago that his players were not at maximum effectiveness. The Catalan agreed a two-year contract extension in May that ties him to the club until June 2021. "It's important that Raheem and his people know how delighted we are with him and after that maybe it happens or maybe not". "I'm well protected, I don't feel judged".
