London, Jan.19 (ANI): Barcelona has shrugged off claims that coach Pep Guardiola will move to Manchester United.
The 39-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford as Alex Ferguson's eventual successor.
Barcelona won six trophies under Guardiola last season, including a Champions League final victory over United in Rome.
Barca president Joan Laporta is convinced the coach will stay put.
The Sun quoted Laporta, as saying: "We cannot avoid the speculation as he is the best coach in the world and many clubs will be interested. Manchester United are just one club who I am sure are watching his future - but he has a long way to go with Barcelona."
"Because of his characteristics, we expect him to continue to write the pages of history of this football club. We would like to solve this question mark over his future as soon as possible and we are convinced that he will sign but we must respect his decision to wait," Laporta added. (ANI)
