Pep Guardiola rules out Manchester City winning the quadruple: 'It's ridiculous!

Guardiola, who faces Neves and Wolves at the Etihad tonight, said at a pre-match briefing: "A month ago, I started reading "Ruben Neves, £100million".

Their arrival in Manchester before Christmas coincided with an upturn in the forward's form, and Guardiola said: "The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there". He knows the Premier League and, after three years together here, he knows everything and that's so important.

"It's going to be a very hard match, they have players who know each other very well".

Guardiola acknowledges he can not expect Fernandinho, signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, to play as much for City as he gets older, adding a solution has to be found for next season.

"In the last couple of weeks, and this is an interesting theory - do you want City to win back-to-back titles and begin a period of domination, which back-to-back titles can feel like?"

Guardiola said: "It's not easy to find the specific quality of the players". "We know it's going to be hard when you see the other teams in the league but we know we can achieve it if we are focused and concentrate".

"That's not going to happen".

Guardiola did not reference De Jong but conceded City face a hard task beating Barca and Madrid when it comes to transfers.

"But I'm not talking about the case of the Ajax player because he is an Ajax player".

Pep: Gundogan could be future Ferna successor: Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Ilkay Gundogan.

"It is important that we took the last two games seriously", added Guardiola. He had more space than usual but he was so clever. The 21-year-old helped Wolves gain promotion after signing from Porto in a £15.8 million deal in the summer of 2017 and the Portugal player has impressed in the top flight this season. He made an incredible assist and a lot of passes before the finish. He can play that holding midfield role. When he's close to the box he arrives in the right tempo and the right moment to score a goal. "But if you want one and many, many clubs want him it's more complicated, especially if it's Madrid or Barcelona", Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's Premier League clash with Wolves.
