Raheem Sterling opens talks with Manchester City over contract

But with one game still to play at Southampton on Sunday, City have the opportunity to set the bar even higher and reaching the century of points is the prime motivation. "I think it's not going to happen", Guardiola said "My desire, I think it's not going to happen".

"The Premier League is the toughest in the world and I hope they are going to respond to the challenge because next season is going to be tougher", he added.

Huddersfield's survival in the Premier League means that not one of the 15 teams promoted in England's top five divisions last season have been relegated 12 months later. "That's why I say it isn't going to happen, but in football, you never know".

However, the Argentine remained at the club and profited from the mid-season injury of the Brazilian, netting 30 goals in 39 games across all competitions.

Meanwhile, City are expected to begin talks with winger Raheem Sterling over a new contract this summer.

Guardiola said: "The club, the chairman and myself want him to stay as long as possible".

Silva, who joined City from Monaco last summer, has scored nine goals this season.

"We did that and now we'll make some details - Yaya (Toure) is leaving. One, maybe two, but not too many". "It is hard to find anyone better than Bernardo Silva". The manager and all the staff told us they wanted it, they said: "'Let's break the records because it will be something special.' And it will be something that maybe in a few years we can still tell our kids and grandkids about".
