Pep Guardiola will arrive in Abu Dhabi for a post-season meeting with his Manchester City employers as planned, despite his family being caught up in Monday's terror attack in Manchester.

City have refused to comment on reports in Spain but it is believed that Guardiola's wife and two daughters escaped unhurt from the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, where a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured around 60 others.
