Chelsea’s number one choice to take over the managerial duty in the summer – Pep Guardiola – is all set to join Man City in the summer. The current Bayern Munich has been linked with the job at Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea recently. He recently confirmed that he hasn’t decided on his next destination yet, but he would be working in England.
He said: “I haven’t decided on a new club yet. I want to experience a new city, and I want to work in England. That is the reason I have taken this decision.”
But it seems like the Spaniard has already made up his mind on his next destination. At least that’s what his close latest reports say.
The Daily Mirror’s chief football writer, John Cross, also thinks that the 44-year-old has made up his mind and that Manchester City will be his destination.
Sky Sports Germany journalist, Uli Koehler, also confirms that Pep Guardiola is taking charge of Man City at the end of the season. “We know 100% and definitely that he will join [Manchester] City next year,” explained Koehler. “His old friends [Ferran] Soriano and Txiki Begiristain are there, and I think Man City hired them only to get Pep Guardiola, and now this day will come in summer.”
“They have the type of players he likes, and the style of football that he likes to play and he would sit very well at City. United would be another option, and I am sure the fact Txiki is at City is very important for the future of Pep and the position that he takes. Another club would be Chelsea, another club that until last year always wanted to play good football.”
He added: “The fact that they are in London, and Pep could live there, would be a good opportunity as well. But I would probably go more for City out of the top four or five clubs in England, as they like to play the kind of football Pep Guardiola like. Wherever he goes, he will have good players to do it, and he knows exactly the style he wants to play. He will adapt to the English league, but will impose the football he likes.”
