A Manchester City director, Alberto Galassi, has insisted that manager, Pep Guardiola, remains fully committed to his contract as he rubbished “nonsensical” reports of an imminent move to Juventus.
Guardiola is being linked with the Serie A champions, days after winning an historic domestic treble in England.
Some reports had gone as far as claiming that an agreement is already in place and that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich will be confirmed in his new role shortly.
However, Galassi is adamant that is not the case.
“As a Manchester City advisor, I was very surprised to read that a news agency broke completely nonsensical news.
“What Pep said last week obviously went unheard.
“First of all, the coach wants to stay at the club and he still has two years left on his contract.
“Second, a club like Juventus wouldn’t have allowed the leak of news of this magnitude. They would have contacted us first.
“It’s impossible to think that there will be a presentation in a few days. The news is completely untrue. It’s ridiculous.
“The coach’s desire is to stay, Pep is an amazing professional.
“He can’t understand why his words are not being considered.
“Honestly we don’t understand why a club should explain a sure fact, Guardiola wants to stay,” Galassi told Sky Sport Italia.
