Pep Guardiola reveals plans for Barcelona return at end of career

He told Universo Valdano: "He is really good, a very dynamic player".

Do you consider De Bruyne to be one of the best Premier League players out there?

City view De Bruyne as central to their long-term plans as they target domestic and European dominance and the clause is a deterrent to would-be suitors.

"He's not fit for tomorrow but he's progressing well", Guardiola said.

"The clause is €250m (£223m). I'm sorry, he's not for sale".

"De Bruyne does everything and everything well, but still has room to grow". Argentina offered him the chance to take charge of the national side this summer but the City manager rebuffed the offer.

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has made a surprising claim about his future after recently stating he'd never return to FC Barcelona.

"Yes. I'm going to coach a national team if I'm given the opportunity and they want me", Guardiola said.

"I will finish again where I last steps will be in the youth teams - I hope at Barca".

Guardiola is happy with the strength and fitness of his squad after noting a month ago that his players were not at maximum effectiveness. The forward is in the final two years of his contract with reports suggesting he wants a £100,000-a-week pay rise to sign a new deal. "The club knows my opinion and we share that and after that it is [up to] the club and Raheem's agent". "I'm well protected, I don't feel judged".
