Manchester City fans would have been delighted when Pep Guardiola became the club’s new manager almost two years ago.
The Spaniard arrived at the Etihad Stadium with plenty of pedigree having won six league titles across spells in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Guardiola’s debut campaign as City boss was a transitional one, but his team came into their own this season as they blew away the opposition and sealed the Premier League title a month early.
As well as becoming English champions, the North-West outfit clinched the Carabao Cup and are continually breaking records.
With the summer transfer window just around the corner, rumours have been rumbling about potential incomings and outgoings.
A recent report in the Manchester Evening News claimed that Real Madrid are interested in four of City’s first-team players, including defender John Stones.
However, following City’s 4-1 victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday, Guardiola rubbished the notion of Stones leaving.

Rather than focus on the comment about Stones, the fans looked deeper into the manager’s remark about his own future.
