Pep Guardiola reveals plans for Barcelona return at end of career

De Bruyne played 30 minutes in City's opening day win over Arsenal, but has missed the last three games through injury.

'He's very good. He's a very dynamic player, ' Guardiola told Universo Valdano.

De Bruyne will watch from afar this weekend as City welcome newly-promoted Fulham to the Etihad.

"[Leeds United boss] Marcelo Bielsa told me he was his favourite player". He does everything. I recently met his parents and you only understand how children are when you have met the parents.

"He's an incredible boy. I'm sorry, he's not for sale".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made it clear that he wants to end his coaching career at current Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona.

And the 47-year-old confirmed he also has ambitions to try his hand at worldwide management should the chance arise.

"In my opinion I think loans are for younger players trying to improve, who have got the whole world in front of them". "I want to try it".

After working with the youth sides, Guardiola was named first-team head coach in 2008 and went on to achieve significant success with the club. "I'm not saying I'm brilliant or saying I'm flawless", he added.

His contract with the club expires in 2021 and he has previously said he would not return to Barcelona as manager, although sporting director is a position that interests him.
