Thiago Alcantara has denied talks linking him with a move away from Bayern Munich for City.
It was believed that Guardiola will lure Thiago to City, the same way he took the midfielder from Barcelona to Bayern.
But the midfielder is happy at Germany and has no desire to leave Bayern.
“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,” Thiago 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.”
