Pep Guardiola to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus?


"Im satisfied here, I'm not going anywhere". Manchester City could not have been left out without knowing and being advised.

A report that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has agreed to take over Juventus is "a load of nonsense", according to a member of the Premier League champions' board.

Since Massimiliano Allegri's imminent departure from Juve was announced last week, Guardiola's name has been thrown around as someone who could replace the Italian in Turin.

City board member Galassi insists that is not the case, with Guardiola having already stated that he intends to honour an agreement at the Etihad Stadium before considering any new challenge. "It will depend how I feel and if they want me", Pep said.

Guardiola, 48, etched his name into the history books following the Citizens' 6-0 rout of Watford in the FA Cup final, becoming the first coach ever to clinch a domestic treble of trophies in England, consisting of the Carabao Cup, the Premier League title and the FA Cup.

Guardiola signed an extension to his deal with the Premier League club past year and is contracted at Etihad Stadium until 2021.

A Juventus spokeswoman declined to comment as did City Football Group, the English club's owner.

City had offered De Rossi a huge deal back in 2012, but he chose to stay at Roma and be loyal to his boyhood club, but could take on the coaching job now with a very different feel in place. This is ridiculous. Guardiola wants to stay. He can't understand how his word is not being heard.

Galassi went on to reveal that he has discussed the rumours with Juventus vice-president Pavel Neved, who found the speculation as amusing as he did.

"How many times do I have to say I am not going to Juventus, I am not going to move to Italy", he said.
