Pep Guardiola has rubbished reports linking Manchester City with a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
Reports in the British media this week claimed that the Citizens were willing to break the world transfer record to bring the France World Cup winner to Manchester in January.
In return, Raheem Sterling would likely have been sold in order to finance the move, claimed the rumours.
Guardiola, however, was emphatic when asked about Mbappe at his press conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League game against Hoffenheim.
"That is not going to happen," the Spaniard told Sky Sports. "Sometimes I don't understand where the news comes from.
"Manchester City don't have, and are not going to spend, the money that maybe Mbappe deserves, or PSG deserves.
"PSG is not going to sell this kind of player to any other club in the world for the next years, I guess. So that is not going to happen.
"Mbappe is not going to come here and we are not going to swap Raheem [Sterling] or another top player that we have."
