Pep Guardiola insisted his contract situation at Manchester City would not impact potential signings in the close-season.
Guardiola has said he intends to honour his deal, which runs until 2021, with the Premier League giants and that would take him into a fifth season at City.
“That’s the not only reason they come here, because I am here. I’d say we have been in contact with others who didn’t come when I was here,” he told UK newspapers.
“I think the club is big enough and good enough to be attractive for players who want to play in the way we do, or they watch TV and see us and we have played against them.
“They will still want to come because of economic reasons, or because just they want to play for City. I think Man City is not a bad solution for players.”
