Pep Guardiola revealed that it is unlikely to take away Manchester City during a break from warm weather because they are fighting on all four fronts.
The city has been to Abu Dhabi during the last two campaigns for intense sessions in the heat in an effort to recharge their batteries.
It is something that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the luxury of this week, with Manchester United returning Thursday night for four days in Dubai.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola speaks Friday at his press conference
United had a free week after Derby County dumped them from the Carabao Cup in September and used the time to make tactical plans and do extra fitness work.
Guardiola is uncertain whether the Premier League champions can cling to a trip given their hectic schedule.
& # 39; It would be a dream, everyone is invited & # 39 ;, Guardiola said. & # 39; After Wigan defeated us in the FA Cup, we had time last year.
& # 39; This morning I saw the schedule because the Everton game will be resolved for another week. We will see.
Hopefully not because it means that (we) will continue in the FA Cup of Champions League. & # 39;
Manchester United's team trained in the Dubai sun this week
City does not get the chance to leave, because their matches continue to pile up
Sergio Aguero trained this week for the first time this week on Thursday, while the striker continues to fight a disease.
Guardiola hopes to have the Argentine back on Monday against the match against Wolves, with Vincent Kompany eager to prove his condition.
& # 39; Sergio after Liverpool was ill, & # 39; he added. & # 39; He's a little better. Vincent recovered after the game against Liverpool. The rest is fit. I hope they are ready. & # 39;
Guardiola also claimed that City will do everything to help Gabriel, because the family of the striker is traveling back to Brazil.
Some of his closest friends and family, including his mother, spent the festive season in Manchester.
"Private life is private life and if they need something, we are there. We are there to help, "Guardiola said.
& # 39; But of course we can not replace the mother and if the family can not be there, it is difficult.
They have to handle the situation and of course he is not the only one, he has friends. He has an incredible relationship with the Brazilian boys, such as Danilo, Fernandinho, Bernardo, many, many players here.
& # 39; I think it will not be a problem in the coming months. & # 39;
