Manchester City are reportedly stepping up their interest to sign up Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola to replace Manuel Pellegrini in a whopping £100m deal, according to the Mirror.
Pellegrini, 61, is thought to be leaving Eastlands next summer, prompting the Sky Blues to look up for a shortlist of potential replacement.
With the reports are suggested that the English giants are hoping to snap up the Spaniard in a five-year deal worth £20m per season to the Etihad.
The 44-year-old’s contract at the Allianz Arena is running until the end of the 2015/16 season – and he has admitted that he hasn’t decided upon his future.
Guardiola was appointed by the German champions in 2013 as a replacement for Jupp Heynckes and since then has led them to two Bundesliga titles, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and DFB-Pokal.
