Pogba's message was accompanied by a picture of him in Manchester United training, cupping his ear as though to City boss Guardiola.

City can lift the Premier League title at an earlier stage of the season than any team before them by beating Jose Mourinho's United on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

Italian Raiola, who represents both Pogba and Mkhitaryan, had previously attacked Guardiola, saying: "He [Guardiola] is a coward, a dog. But (this) guy two months ago he offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us".

"So if I'm a bad guy, and he (Raiola) has to protect his players, then he has to know he can not bring the players (to) a guy like me, who is a dog". He has since joined Arsenal.

I think United will stop City fans celebrating and rubbing salt in our wounds, but it won't be pretty to watch.

There has been hostility between Guardiola and Raiola since one of Raiola's most high-profile clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was forced out of Barcelona in 2011 when Guardiola coached the Spanish team.

Pogba is an incredible player. "But in my case, I always try to play every match with the same mentality and responsibility and not try to make a derby an El Clásico or whatever we used to call it in Portugal and Spain - a special match".

Pep Guardiola's men will become the first team in the league's 26-year history to wrap up the title with six games to spare if they beat United at the Etihad - a fitting end to a season of nearly total dominance in the league. "A top, top player". However, he has been shackled more often than not in the midfield setup that Moutinho plays.

If Pep triumphs, he will become the third manager to win the title in England and at least two of the other big five European leagues, after Carlo Ancelotti (3) and Jose Mourinho (2).

Asked if he would ever be interested in signing one of Raiola's players again, Guardiola said: "I am not a good guy".

"Nobody believes but we have another game", said Guardiola after the defeat to Jurgen Klopp's men.

Keane told ITV's Champions League highlights programme: "There has been a lot of hype about this Manchester City team, talk about them being a great team". Not a single Manchester-born player has started the derby for City in 11 years, which in so many ways cheapens the idea of the rivalry.
