Pep Guardiola has refused to discuss any rumors, whether they are about players leaving Manchester city or arriving.

As when any transfer window opens and clubs like Manchester City and the rest of Europe’s elite are linked with all kinds of players.

If your striker misses a shot, you need a striker, if your defender misses a tackle you need a defender.

If a player gets injured you have to buy a replacement. Likewise if so and so is only on the bench he is being sold.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has had his fill of rumors.

Laporte is injured and City has been linked with every top defender in the world.

John Stones spends a few games on the bench, and he’s being sold.

According to Goal, when pushed today regarding transfer activity, Guardiola drew a line under it and stopped the harassing press in their tracks.

He said:

“I am not going to talk about rumors about our players or other players.”

“We are going to buy 500 million players? “

“I’m not going to answer about that.”

The latest rumor surrounding the club is Leroy Sane to leave and Mikel Oyarzabal to replace him.

Pep stuck to his guns and made no comment on the speculation.
