Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola to join Manchester City next season

Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola, has been confirmed as his successor at the start of the 2016/17 season.

Manchester City have confirmed today that current manager Manuel Pellegrini is leaving the two time Premier League champions at the end of the season.

At around 1pm today, Manchester City released a statement saying that they had “commenced and finalized contractual negotiations with Pep Guardiola to become Head Coach for the 2016/17 English Premier League Season onwards.”

The deal is for three years and with already 2 Champions League’s, 3 La Liga’s, 2 Bundesliga’s, 3 Club World Cups and 3 Super Cups, Pep will definitely be wanting to be adding a Premier League title to his honours.

Pellegrini spoke earlier in his press conference confirming the news.

“I talked to the club and I will finish my contract on the original date,”

“We signed a contract for one more year, but with a clause that one of the club or me cannot use that extended contract. So I will finish here on the original date.

“They are not doing anything behind me. I knew this a month ago. But I don’t think it’s good, this rumour and speculation about different things. I would prefer to finish the speculation today. That’s why I told the press, I told the players, and I spoke with the club two weeks ago saying that I would do it.”

With surely one of the World’s best managers joining City, could the 2016/17 season be a breeze for the Manchester side? Will any clubs be able to compete with this ever-growing Manchester City team? COMMENT BELOW!
