Man City boss Guardiola addresses fresh Juventus rumours

Pep Guardiola has described Manchester City as Champions League "teenagers" and warns they can not take their place in the quarter-finals for granted ahead of Tuesday's game with Schalke.

Reports from the Old Lady camp claimed the former Barcelona player and boss had agreed a four year deal in person to become their next manager.

"I have two more years on my contract and moving is impossible unless they sack me", Guardiola told reporters this evening. "But if Manchester City wants me I will stay two more years, by far, and hopefully another one".

He's won domestic titles in both Spain and Germany not to mention the Premier League last season with Manchester City in a record breaking term. "I am not going to Juventus for the next two seasons".

However, the media in England seem to have run with this story considerably more than in Italy, where they point towards Zinedine Zidane or the return of Antonio Conte.

The Telegraph's report claims the club's owners would like Guardiola to stay at the club for a decade and create a dynasty in Manchester.

Guardiola is happy to take a lead into the game at the Etihad Stadium, having lost 3-0 to Liverpool in the quarter-final first-leg last season, but he is determined not to allow for complacency.

"I don't know whether it is important for the rest of the people but it is important for ourselves".

On Friday the Premier League confirmed it had a probe into City under way.

Asked if he was concerned these issues could affect his legacy, Guardiola said: "No, absolutely not".

Responding to the UEFA investigation, City said in a statement: "Manchester City welcomes the opening of a formal UEFA investigation as an opportunity to bring to an end the speculation resulting from the illegal hacking and out of context publication of City emails". At a time when the Premier League champions are being investigated by Fifa, Uefa and the Premier League over allegations they breached Financial Fair Play regulations, Guardiola's own future has come into question.
