Manchester City upend Watford on Sterling's hat trick

Manchester City upend Watford on Sterling's hat trick

Pep Guardiola has described Manchester City as Champions League "teenagers" and warns they can not take their place in the quarter-finals for granted ahead of Tuesday's game with Schalke.

"I have two more years, I'm going to be here and the future (after that) I don't know", he said. Il Giornale journalist Luigi Guelpa told Radio CRC that Guardiola had verbally agreed a four-year deal to replace Massimiliano Allegri at the Allianz Stadium from next season.

Guardiola is now on course to win an unprecedented quadruple with City having already won the Carabao Cup while in contention to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

Manchester City continue their Premier League title defence at the end of March when they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham, after a huge Champions League second-leg match against Schalke and FA Cup tie against Swansea. However it seems Guardiola won't be joining Juventus this season. That came a day after European governing body UEFA announced it had launched a formal investigation into allegations of breaches of its Financial Fair Play regulations.

City could face Champions League disqualification and a transfer ban if found guilty.

However, according to the London Evening Standard, sources close to Guardiola have insisted that there is no truth in the links with the Old Lady.

"Impossible. Except if they sack me and after I go home".

The Telegraph's report claims the club's owners would like Guardiola to stay at the club for a decade and create a dynasty in Manchester.

But Guardiola strongly denied the claims and said he will only leave if he is sacked and could stay longer than his current deal that runs until 2021.

It must be a big relief for Manchester City and it's fans to hear that Guardiola isn't leaving England.

During his four full seasons at Juventus, Allegri has won four Serie A titles and four Coppa Italias, while also taking the Turin outfit to two Champions League finals.
