He is into the final year of his contract while Barca are expected to part company with Quique Setien, potentially prompting talk of a return for their successful former head coach.

However, Guardiola's representative Orobitg insists the 49-year-old will honour his contract with City.

"Yes, Pep will stay at City 100 per cent," he told Goal.

Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and former midfield icon Xavi have also been linked with the top job at Camp Nou.
