"I think we live in a strange world," he told DAZN.

"We didn't have any contact, we never even thought about it, because (Guardiola) is under contract, for a thousand reasons.

"It all seems very strange to me. We have clear ideas, we have already said it, we are doing our evaluations, and there are still many competitions in progress.

"Until all the competitions end, it seems to me right, out of respect for everyone, to remain in this situation."
