Deal done – Guardiola rejected Man Utd & will take over Man City, signed a 3 year contract & becomes highest paid manager

Present Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season. The Spanish manager signed a three-year deal when he first arrived in Germany two-and-a-half years ago and with barely six months remaining on his present deal and with no news of a renewal on the cards, speculation about him leaving the Bavarians at the end of the season was unimaginably high.
All that talk proved to be true as Bayern Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed on Sunday that Guardiola had indeed decided to leave the club when his contract comes to an end in the summer. Rummenigge also confirmed that the Bundesliga giants had already come to an agreement with Carlo Ancelotti to take over the reigns when Guardiola does leave.

A statement by Rummenigge on the Bayern Munich website read, “We are grateful to Pep Guardiola for everything he has given our club since 2013. I am convinced that Pep and our team will now work even more intensively towards achieving our major sporting goals – especially as it is now confirmed that Pep is to leave FC Bayern.”

Rummenigge also added, “Carlo Ancelotti has enjoyed success everywhere as a coach and has won the Champions League three times. Carlo is a calm, balanced expert, who knows how to deal with stars and favours a multifaceted style of play – we were looking for this, and we have found it. We are looking forward to working with him.”
This latest development has removed any scope of speculation about Carlo Ancelotti’s future but it has made the situation worse as far as Pep Guardiola is concerned. The Spaniard is now rumoured to be eyeing a move to the Premier League with Manchester United and Manchester City being one of the more probable destinations.

United already signed a contract with Mourinho today and Man City should also reveal the truth in upcoming hours.

The managerial merry-go-round that we have going right now is proving to be a treat to watch with so many managers and so many clubs all involved in the fray.
