‘Surely he’s coming’ – Man City fans react as Josko Gvardiol reveals conversation with Pep Guardiola


Highly-rated RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol has admitted that he recently had a conversation with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

After impressing for Croatia at the World Cup, interest in Gvardiol’s signature has only grown so holding onto him could prove to be a difficult task for Leipzig.

The plethora of clubs keen to take the youngster will lead to his current club demanding an astronomical fee, such is the level of excitement surrounding his future.

Despite these talks, the Croatian international, who only turned 21 in January, warned he does not expect to leave the German club at the end of this season.

“The club is not interested in selling me this summer,” Gvardiol told Net HR.

“So there is no point in talking about anything else. The most important thing is to end this season in Leipzig in the best possible way.”

The 21-year-old started both legs of Leipzig’s recent Champions League last-16 clash with Manchester City and scored his side’s only goal across the two-legs in Germany.

While City hammered their opposition in the second-leg, winning 7-0 at the Etihad Stadium, Gvardiol has admitted he had a discussion with City boss Pep Guardiola after that hammering, but refuses to make the specific details of a private conversation public.

The Croatian added: “I extended my hand to Guardiola in the Champions League. I congratulated him on going through.

“Guardiola, a great coach, threw a few words at me. But I will keep them to myself.”

These Josko Gvardiol’s comments shared on Twitter gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters.
