Guardiola is unsure whether the Premier League champions can wedge in a trip given their hectic schedule.

Their arrival in Manchester before Christmas coincided with an upturn in the forward's form, and Guardiola said: "The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there".

"Hopefully not, because that means we continue in the FA Cup and especially in the Champions League".

"No, I didn't speak with him", Guardiola said.

They took a significant step towards winning one of those trophies on Wednesday, thrashing third tier Burton Albion 9-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.

"But we don't know the private lives and the private lives can affect a lot their performance, shorter to medium time".

City have Sergio Aguero in contention for Monday's game after he returned to training following flu, while Vincent Kompany is fighting to be fit to face Wolves.

"His [Solskjaer] start is much better than mine, I lost my first game and drew the second", Guardiola was quoted by Metro UK as telling reporters ahead of Man City's Premier League clash with Wolves. "I hope they'll be OK for Monday". "Vincent [Kompany] is recovering well after the game against Liverpool". We will try to help them. We are there to help.

'But of course, we cannot substitute the mother and when the family can't be there, it's hard. "But it is what it is and he has to handle that situation". He has incredible relationship with the Brazilian guys, like Danilo, Fernandinho, [and the Portuguese speaker] Bernardo [Silva], many, many players here.

"We realised [how good they were] when we played them in the EFL Cup last season and again early this season", the former Barcelona boss told a pre-match news conference, having overseen a penalty shoot-out triumph in the former game before his team were held 1-1 at Molineux in August.
