"I'm sorry, he's not for sale".

De Bruyne, once of Chelsea, is considered one of the world's elite midfielders and signed a six-year deal at City in January. "I believe it's - to start, it's the best", he told Universo Valdano. Not many teams could lose a player of De Bruyne's quality and still be competitive.

The Spaniard went on to praise his midfielder, adding, "De Bruyne does everything and everything well, but still has room to grow". He does everything. I recently met his parents and you only understand how children are when you have met the parents.

He also said he envisages finishing his coaching career in Barcelona's academy.

Pep Guardiola has denied any knowledge of a release clause in Kevin De Bruyne's contract, following reports in Spanish newspapers that the Belgian might be bought out for €250m (£223m).


"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 want to try, for sure. if they want me.

I will finish where I started: my last steps will hopefully be in the academy of Barça".

Guardiola is happy with the strength and fitness of his squad after noting a month ago that his players were not at maximum effectiveness. "The club knows my opinion and we share that and after that it is [up to] the club and Raheem's agent".

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