Pep Guardiola reveals plans for Barcelona return at end of career

Guardiola reveals plans for Barcelona return

Guardiola reveals plans for Barcelona return

He's so competitive and professional.

"Sterling, when he played the two or three games he played, for example against Arsenal away or the last game here, he was playing good".

"But actually, if I am Pep, I have other players, senior players, who I have to get up to speed because they haven't had many match minutes". Last season he was fined by the Football Association for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of imprisoned Catalan politicians.

"My teams are going to try to play how I want", he said to Jorge Valdano on Universo Valdano.

"That's not the case".

Kevin de Bruyne is one of the best players in the world right now and would improve literally any club on the planet but there's no way he's leaving anytime soon, unless someone pays his expensive release clause.

The 23-year-old was also hoping that a strong personal showing in Russian Federation might strengthen his bargaining position. He will grow up.

His contract with City expires at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Sources at the club have told ESPN FC that there are no concerns over contract talks but Guardiola has reiterated that he wants Sterling to stay.

He is now on around £175,000-a-week and is understood to want close to £300,000 to sign a new deal.

"After two or three days of training with him, he came to me and said, "I like this one". We share our opinions and after it's club and agent. "Sometimes this kind of thing needs its own time".

"The journalist asked if we'd sell him for 250million (euros) and I said no, but that is my personal opinion".

"For some players it's like this", he said. The clause is €250m (£223m).

The ex-Barcelona coach told a press conference (via Goal's Sam Lee): "I don't know what is his release clause".
