Maurizio Sarri reveals Pep Guardiola warning ahead of Premier League move

"We want him to stay but he does not have a work permit yet so we will try to convince the federation to allow him to stay", the City manager said.

"Mahrez is good. He had a little bit of pain but he trained day before yesterday - I think so (he can play on Sunday)", said Guardiola, who twice outwitted Sarri in the Champions League last season when the Italian was managing Napoli. Brian McClair, who played for United from 1987 to 1998, told BBC World Service Sport: "You should, at some point, look as though you are enjoying it. Jose maybe enjoys himself internally but from a football point of view, the Manchester United fans would very much welcome to see him smiling and laughing at appropriate times".

Willian, having reported five days later for pre-season training citing a problem with his passport, has escaped a club fine and left the new manager with the impression he will be here for the season despite interest from Real Madrid.

City face last season's FA Cup winners Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday (15:00 BST kick-off). Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too. I can say that it was the best decision I've made in my life to come to Manchester City because whilst I'm here I'm improving as a professional and as a person. He is perfectly suited to the style of football that Guardiola has instilled at City, so it should come as no surprise that City have secured his long term future at the Etihad.

For Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas is a doubt with a minor knee injury.

"After overhauling the squad in the previous two years, it is now about evolution more than revolution, with City making a solitary signing".

First up we start with Tosin. "But in this moment of the season it's very important, the performance". "If, at the end, we decide to bring in another one it will be because they can be a special player for the future, not to have one more player for the numbers".

Sarri has already set about charming his new squad and is confident Willian will stay after talks with the Brazilian on Thursday.
