van dijk dsouThe mega-rich club have been linked with a £50 million move for the Southampton star in January, but speaking to a press conference, Pep Guardiola has called the move “Impossible.”

Guardiola said, “Will Van Dijk come here? Next month here? We are going to Southampton to play against them. He is not going to come here next month, because it is impossible,”

“Because he is a Southampton player and we don’t want him now. We are going to go to Southampton to play them, that’s for sure.

“I said before that if you ask me today, ‘No.’ But maybe next week if we decide to change and we realise maybe we need something special maybe in one position, one more player in that position because we don’t have too much, especially in the full-backs.

“But the other positions we are quite happy.”
