Juventus offer €20M-a-year to Man City boss Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has turned down a massive offer from Juventus.

While they're in advanced talks with Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, the Italian wasn't Juve's first choice, says Euro Sport.

Instead, Juve made a serious attempt for Guardiola, tabling an offer of €20m-a-year to leave City. But the Catalan assured City chiefs that he wasn't tempted.

Just this past week, Guardiola insisted: "There is no better place in the world to be a coach than England. I compare it to Spain and Germany, Italy would be the same. There is no better place for this: the fans do not whistle if you lose 'I have a blue jersey, I'm one of you...'

"I am happy with their trust in me, I want to repay the trust they had in me and my kids over the next two seasons."
