​Man City boss Guardiola coy over transfer speculation

Pep Guardiola was unwilling to discuss Manchester City's transfer targets ahead of Saturday's Premier League game at Southampton.

Asked specifically about reports linking City with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, Guardiola said: "It is not time to talk about that, about the players who are going to stay here, the hypothetical players who are coming here next season. It is not time. We have a lot of (playing) business to do."

Similarly, Guardiola rebuffed a question about whether keeper Joe Hart could have his loan at Torino extended.

He said: "At the end of the season we are going to speak about the players who are under contract next year and for the loan players."
