Pep Guardiola has denied that he is planning to take a sabbatical at Manchester City.
Jeremy Cross today wrote in the Daily Star that Guardiola was planning a break from football.
In the exclusive Cross claimed: “There is no suggestion Guardiola will quit the Premier League champions this summer.”
But he did suggest that the Spaniard “could decide to leave the Etihad at the end of next season if he manages to win the Champions League”.
Guardiola though has quickly condemned the reports and said he will only leave Manchester City ‘if they throw me out’.
Guardiola told Mundo Deportivo: “I’m not taking a year out. It’s come out in the press and been doing the rounds, but it’s not true.
“I have two years left on my contract and, if they don’t throw me out, I’ll stay on.”
Apparently, according to to Eurosport, Juventus offered Guardiola an even more lucrative contract than he is currently getting at City to lure him to Turn, but the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss declined the offer.
