Pep Guardiola as Manchester City manager next season?

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has reportedly agreed to manage the Premier League leaders Manchester City next season, according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

Guardiola, 44, was heavily linked with the Etihad outfit over the summer, but he opted to remain with the Bundesliga champions.

Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini’s job at City appears to be secured after the 62-year-old Chilean signed a new contract, which will keep him at the Etihad until 2017.

However, the aforementioned report has claimed, former Barcelona manager is set to leave the Bavarians at the end of this season to become the new Manchester City boss for the 2016-17 campaign after having talks with the club’s director of football Txiki Begiristain.

Guardiola’s contract at the Allianz Arena expires next summer.
