But the City boss moved quickly to stop the speculation when speaking after his side's 3-1 home win over Watford on Saturday. "One with nine and we won the first one. Some other clubs did not accept it".
Guardiola is now on course to win an unprecedented quadruple with City having already won the Carabao Cup while in contention to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.
And he used that experience to warn his players against any complacency. It's incredible what they have done.
It was much the same in the second half as Bernardeschi could not direct a shot on target with Musso in no man's land, while Leonardo Spinazzola tried his luck from distance but was just wide. The last game ended 3-2 in favour Manchester City at the Veltins Arena, Schalke only victory over City came in the semi-finals of the Cup Winners' Cup in 1970. That's the reality in this competition.
"I am sorry if (the first goal) is offside but we deserve to win", City coach Pep Guardiola, who praised his side's perseverance, said after the game.
"I'm 28 years old now so obviously my next contract will decide where I am for maybe the end of my career". I am always open-minded for challenges, it is not (an) obvious (decision). "I have the pressure to do a good job, reduce our mistakes".
Guardiola, though, urged Gundogan to make his intentions clear.
The Spaniard has been in charge of City since 2016, leading the club to one Premier League title and two FA Cups, while they are chasing a quadruple this season.
"If he doesn't want to stay, he has to leave". "If you don't win, next season, try to win it". "If I have to think up something new, I prefer it that way".
"We showed in the first leg we are capable of competing with City".
"Imagine going to the last eight best teams in Europe it is an incredible success, I approach this competition in this way".
Schalke finished second in the Bundesliga last season but their form this term has put Tedesco's future in doubt. We now have 21 days without Premier League.
