With rumors swirling linking him to Juventus, Manchester City managed Pep Guardiola made a decision to set the record straight following City's 3-1 win over Watford on Saturday to move four points clear atop the Premier League table.
Guardiola was quoted by the Telegraph speaking about his future: "I have two more years here [at City] and I'm not going anywhere unless they sack me".
"I know that social media has influence but I don't understand why the big papers say that I'm going to Italy", he told reporters. Il Giornale journalist Luigi Guelpa told Radio CRC that Guardiola had verbally agreed a four-year deal to replace Massimiliano Allegri at the Allianz Stadium from next season.
The Spaniard saw out the remainder of the season in Munich before taking charge of the Manchester side at the start of their 2016-17 campaign on July 1.
He's won domestic titles in both Spain and Germany not to mention the Premier League last season with Manchester City in a record breaking term.
Reports from the Old Lady camp claimed the former Barcelona player and boss had agreed a four year deal in person to become their next manager.

Manchester City are under investigation from UEFA into alleged Financial Fair Play breaches.
It took time for City to find a way through, as it was involved in a goalless first half for the third league game in a row. But sources close to Guardiola insist there is no truth to claims he is looking for an exit route.
The Telegraph's report claims the club's owners would like Guardiola to stay at the club for a decade and create a dynasty in Manchester.
But Guardiola said: "When you are fighting people want to underestimate what you achieve". It is impossible for me to move unless I get sacked. Believe me, I don't care. Manchester City will also do without Kelvin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, Benjamin Mendy and Claudio Bravo due to injury.
With just eight games of the Premier League title race, City now have a 21-day period without a league game.
