Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola defends Leroy Sane over body language criticism

Busquets GFX

Although Guardiola clearly has no intention of letting De Bruyne leave, he added that there is a clause in his new City deal - something which will come as a surprise to many. "(What's) important is Raheem and his people know how delighted we are with him but after that, maybe it happens, maybe not".

The winger also started just one of their first six matches last season with Guardiola saying he didn't have a good preseason, but the Catalan says he isn't concerned. It's the only way to maintain the level we achieved last season.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has clarified his previous comments relating to a potential release clause in the contract of Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. Only a handful of players such as Andres Iniesta and Dani Alves have struck up that nearly telepathic bond with the Argentine, however, but Sergio Busquets is one of them. I had just one chance to do it as a player.

The Sun reports that the club manager Pep Guardiola disclosed the 27-year-old Belgium global is doing well, but will not be in contention to face Fulham on Saturday.

"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. Everybody is here because after three seasons I want to work with them and I think they want to work with us. We share our opinions and after it's club and agent. The clause is €250m (£223m).

But Guardiola claims his comments have been misunderstood and says he is not even sure De Bruyne's contract contains a release clause. "And I said, "When there is trouble, he will be there".

"After two or three days of training with him, he came to me and said, "I like this one".
