Manchester City's Pep Guardiola reveals Barcelona return plans

"In England there are not release clauses so you have to negotiate with the club".

Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne is not for sale, and says the midfielder has a release clause of €250 million (£223/$292m).

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Manchester City star David Silva has hinted he would fancy a move away from the English topflight and join Spanish side Las Palmas in 2020. Not many teams could lose a player of De Bruyne's quality and still be competitive.

"He's an incredible boy".

City have hardly struggled without De Bruyne, but compared to last season's cruise to the title, a draw at newly-promoted Wolves and a tight 2-1 victory at home to struggling Newcastle have represented a challenging start to the campaign.

Pep Guardiola has said it took only two days of training together for Lionel Messi to tell him how impressed he was with Sergio Busquets.

"The other day, I met his parents and you often understand how the children are when you know the parents".

"My last steps [coaching wise] will be with Barcelona at La Masia". "I'm at the club that interests me, with Ferran Soriano, Txiki (Begiristain), who I have known since we were in the reserves".

"Here [City] I feel very good, very protected from football", he said.

He now has a couple of months on the sidelines and City will be better for his return, which is always a scary prospect.
