Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has denied reports that have claimed he will follow Pep Guardiola to Manchester City.

The current Bavarians boss will leave the Allianz-Arena in the summer as he prepares for his first job in England.
City confirmed earlier this month that the former Barcelona coach will move to the Etihad Stadium and that has resulted in plenty of rumours about potential transfers.

Robert Lewandowski, Frank Ribery, Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller have all been linked and Thiago has become the latest name.

Guardiola brought Thiago in from Barcelona but he has suffered with injuries since moving to the Bundesliga champions.
He has played 19 games this season and the Spaniard insists he is happy to see out his current deal that expires in June 2019.

“There are always a lot of rumours. It’s a fact that Guardiola is joining Manchester City and we have to respect that. But there is no truth in the rumours saying I will follow him,” he was quoted as saying by Bild.

“I would not have signed a new contract had I wanted to leave the club. I extended my contract for a reason. I am loving life here in Munich. I am enjoying the city and life here in general.”

After struggling with several injuries this season, the 24-year-old will be desperate to prove his worth to Spain boss Vicente del Bosque ahead of Euro 2016.

Del Bosque’s side are priced at 6.00 to win the tournament but they must beat the likes of Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey in their group to have a chance.
