Galassi told Sky Italy television station that reports of the Spanish manager leaving City for the Italian Serie A champions was “nonsense”, adding that Guardiola wanted to remain in Manchester.

Shares in Juventus gained more than 3% on Thursday. Traders said the stock was supported by rumours of Guardiola as the new coach.
