"I have two more years here and I am going to move? Impossible. Except if they sack me," says Guardiola after Man City's 3-1 Premier League win over Watford

Pep Guardiola rubbished reports linking him with a move to Juventus

Pep Guardiola has said it is "impossible" for him to leave Manchester City to join Juventus - unless he is sacked.

Reports in Italy had suggested that Guardiola was in line to replace Massimiliano Allegri in Turin this summer and sign a four-year deal.

But the City boss moved quickly to stop the speculation when speaking after his side's 3-1 home win over Watford on Saturday.

"I have two more years here and I am going to move? Impossible," he said.

"Except if they sack me. Then after, I go home. But if Manchester City want me I will stay for two more years and hopefully another one.

"I am not going to go to Juventus in the next two years."

He added: "I know today that social media has influence but I don't understand, believe me. I don't understand.
