Guardiola: Incredible boy De Bruyne not for sale

De Bruyne played 30 minutes in City's opening day win over Arsenal, but has missed the last three games through injury.

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

De Bruyne will watch from afar this weekend as City welcome newly-promoted Fulham to the Etihad.

'(Leeds United boss) Marcelo Bielsa told me he was his favourite player. He does everything. I recently met his parents and you only understand how children are when you have met the parents. The clause is €250million.


Now into his third season with Manchester City, and with a contract which runs for a further two years on top of that, Guardiola has started thinking about how his career will wind down... "I could have had a long summer where I felt sorry for myself, but I love it too much, I love challenges".

The 47-year-old was also asked about the possibility of taking charge of Argentina.

"My time there as a coach is finished because I'm not the same as I was then, nor is the way they see me the same", Guardiola said. "I've always been curious about it".

Pep Guardiola steered Barcelona to a treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and the UEFA Champions League in his first season at the Nou Camp. "I'm not saying I'm brilliant or saying I'm ideal", he added. "I'm at the club that interests me".
