Pep Guardiola is happy for the ‘dream’ of a warm-weather training camp to wait as Manchester City pursue glory on four fronts.

City have taken advantage of mid-season gaps in the fixture schedule in previous years to travel to work in Abu Dhabi.

Rivals Manchester United have spent the past week in Dubai but City could not head abroad because they were involved in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

With one Premier League game already needing to be rearranged, and title-chasing City also continuing in the FA Cup and Champions League, it may not happen this year.

‘It would be a dream,’ City boss Guardiola said. ‘Last season this period was quite similar but after Wigan beat us in the FA Cup we took time to go there.

‘But this morning I saw the schedule. The Everton game is going to be fixed in another week. We don’t have many (gaps).

‘We will see but hopefully not because that would mean (we) will continue in the FA Cup and especially the Champions League. If we don’t, we will have this time in the summer.’
