• I don’t know anything about that, says Pep Guardiola
• Spanish newspapers had reported a €250m trigger point
Pep Guardiola has denied any knowledge of a release clause in Kevin De Bruyne’s contract, following reports in Spanish newspapers that the Belgian might be bought out for €250m (£223m).
“I don’t know anything about that,” the Manchester City manager said. “The journalist asked me if we would sell for 250 million and I said ‘no’. I don’t think he has a release clause in his contract.”
