Guardiola would love to take City on sunshine break like United

Pep Guardiola revealed he is unlikely to whisk Manchester City away on a warm-weather break because they are fighting on all four fronts.
City have been to Abu Dhabi during the last two campaigns for intense sessions in the heat in a bid to recharge their batteries.
It is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the luxury of this week, with Manchester United returning from four days in Dubai on Thursday evening. 
United had a free week after Derby County dumped them out of the Carabao Cup in September and used the time to hone tactical plans and undertake additional fitness work.
Guardiola is unsure whether the Premier League champions can wedge in a trip given their hectic schedule.
'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.' 
Sergio Aguero trained for the first time this week 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 given the striker's family are travelling back to Brazil.
A number of his close friends and family, including his mum, spent the festive period 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.'
