Juventus move "impossible"

Pep Guardiola has dismissed the rumours surrounding his future at Manchester City, amidst claims on social media that he has agreed a deal to join Serie A titans Juventus in the summer. The Spaniard said that it would be "impossible" for him to leave City, unless he is sacked by the club.

"I have two more years here and I am going to move? Impossible," said Guardiola, speaking after his side's 3-1 win over Watford in Saturday's late kick-off.

"Except if they sack me. Then after, I go home. But if Manchester City want me I will stay for two more years and hopefully another one," added the 48-year-old.

"I am not going to go to Juventus in the next two years.

"I know today that social media has influence but I don't understand, believe me. I don't understand.

"Why when someone says something on Twitter do the big newspapers say that for the next four years Pep is going to Juventus?

"I don't understand why the people saying I am going to Juventus don't try to call the club or call myself or call my agent or Juventus or Massimiliano Allegri. I feel so sorry for Massimiliano."

After a frustrating first-half saw Manchester City shut out by a resilient Watford side last night, a dubious goal just a minute after the break saw the Cityzens take the lead through Raheem Sterling.

The England wide man then doubled City's lead just four minutes later, before completing his hat-trick on the hour mark. Substitute Gerard Deulofeu did manage to grab a consolation goal for the visitors just seconds after his introduction from the bench however, but couldn't prevent the game finishing 3-1 in City's favour.

This was Manchester City's sixth straight win in the Premier League, reassuring their stance at the top of the table ahead of Liverpool. Only a point separates the two sides however, as Jurgen Klopp's title chasers recorded a 4-2 win over Burnley in today's early kick-off.

Guardiola also admitted that it is "almost impossible" for his side to not drop points before the season ends in May, should his side continue in all three competitions. The Sky Blues still find themselves firmly in the title race - alongside the FA Cup and the Champions League - having already clinched the League Cup for the second consecutive season last month.

"We have to be calm and prepare for next week [against Schalke]," said Guardiola, ahead of City's UCL last-16 tie with the Bundesliga outfit on Tuesday. The hosts take a 3-2 lead into this week's second leg and will be solid favourites to make it through to next month's quarter-finals.
