Reports from Spain suggest a certain move from Germany to England.
Spanish radio station Cope revealed that Pep Guardiola has packed his bags and is set to part his ways after three season’s in charge of the Bundesliga toppers. During his stint at Bayern Munich Pep Guardiola can boast of two Bundesliga titles and currently the team being invincible topping the league table with eight points clear of Borussia Dortmund and running on a 13 match unbeaten streak.
Though there has been no official statement, sources close to the former Barcelona man, his close friends Ferran Soriano (Manchester City CEO) and Txiki Begiristain (Manchester City director) have confirmed Pep’s long-standing desire to establish his foothold in England too. The news will be soon announced by the Bayern Munich chief Rummenigge before the winter break and Guardiola might establish camp at Manchester City
Though Manchester City look comfortable in the league standing at the No 3 position and Pellagrini having one more year left on his contract a chance to bad Guardiola dosent come every day. So if the push comes to shove, City won’t think twice before letting go of Chilean as they were even ready to get Lionel Messi to the Etihad stadium if it meant getting Pep to England. This brings in the question of who will take up the reins at the Allianz Arena after Guardiola. The most logical and favourite choice would be a certain Italian who has earned laurels everywhere he has been.
Ancelloti is currently on a sabbatical after being sacked by Real Madrid but would be ready to take up the German challenge. However no ‘business’ talks have taken place between the Italian and the Munich outfit. And with both Chelsea and Real Madrid in a bit of a managerial puddle the fight for Ancelloti becomes all the more interesting.
