Guardiola not interested in Juventus move as Man City continue title bid

Guardiola not interested in Juventus move as Man City continue title bid

Guelpa was the journalist who broke the news that Cristiano Ronaldo would leave Real Madrid for Juventus past year.

The story first emerged in Radio CRC, where Il Giornale reporter Luigi Gelpa claimed to receive the tip from "the same source who told me Cristiano Ronaldo was going to Juventus" a year ago. "I am not going to go to Juventus in the next two seasons".

On the eve of the Citizens game with Watford, reports coming out of Italy suggested Guardiola was set to replace Massimiliano Allegri next campaign.

He's won domestic titles in both Spain and Germany not to mention the Premier League last season with Manchester City in a record breaking term.

Sources close to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola have reportedly denied that the Spaniard will be taking charge of Italian champions Juventus at the end of the season. However it seems Guardiola won't be joining Juventus this season. And he reiterated his commitment despite a week when the club's financial affairs have become the subject of UEFA and Premier League investigations.

City also remain in the hunt for the Champions League, and defend a 3-2 first-leg advantage when they host Shalke at the Etihad on Tuesday night. I'm not too much concerned or anxious about what people say if we win the title just because (of) what happens now with UEFA (and) they do not give us credit for what we have done.

Despite winning three Premier League titles since Sheikh Mansour's 2008 takeover and being on course for a fourth, a Champions League title remains elusive.

"Well, I guess the first question would be like this", Guardiola said in the post-match press conference. Believe me, I don't care. The Football Association, meanwhile, is investigating a claim City made a banned payment to the agent of then 14-year-old Jadon Sancho when he joined the club from Watford four years ago.

Guardiola, who dismissed reports linking him with Juventus at the weekend, reiterated his determination to see out his contract with City.
