'It would be a dream!': Pep Guardiola admits he would love to take Manchester City on sunshine break like rivals United but is too busy with club fighting for so many trophiesManchester United have enjoyed warm-weather training in Dubai this week But Manchester City will not get the chance for a much-needed breakPep Guardiola says there is no opportunity to do so due to fixture congestion 

Pep Guardiola revealed he is unlikely to whisk Manchester City away on a warm-weather break because of their hectic schedule.

City have been to Abu Dhabi during the last two campaigns for intense sessions in the heat to recharge their batteries.

It is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted for this week, with Manchester United returning from four days in Dubai on Thursday evening.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola speaks at his press conference on Friday

United had a free week after Derby County dumped them out of the Carabao Cup and Guardiola is unsure whether the Premier League champions can wedge in a trip.

'It would be a dream, everyone is invited,' Guardiola said. 'After Wigan beat us in the FA Cup we had time last year.

'This morning I saw the schedule because the Everton game will be fixed for another week. We'll see.

'Hopefully not because that means (we) will continue in the FA Cup or Champions League.'

City will not get the chance to go away, however, as their fixtures continue to pile up

Sergio Aguero trained for the first time on Thursday as the striker continues to battle an illness.

Guardiola hopes to have the Argentine back for the game against Wolves on Monday, with Vincent Kompany keen to prove his fitness too.

'Sergio after Liverpool was sick,' he added. 'He's a little bit better. Vincent is recovering after the game against Liverpool. The rest are fit. I hope they will be ready.'

Guardiola also claimed City will do everything they can to help Gabriel Jesus after the striker's family travelled back to Brazil.

A number of his close friends and family, including his mum, spent Christmas in Manchester.

'The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there. We are there to help,' Guardiola said.

'But of course, we cannot substitute the mother and when the family can't be there, it's difficult.

'They have to handle the situation and of course he is not alone, he has friends. He has incredible relationship with the Brazilian guys, like Danilo, Fernandinho, Bernardo, many, many players here.

'I think it won't be a problem for the next months.'
