Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has agreed to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season and join Manchester City.
The former Barcelona manager has been linked with several moves to the Premier League in the past and it seems the high profile, much awaited move will finally happen.
The ever reliable Spanish outlet Cadena Cope have reported an exclusive that the Bayern manager has agreed a deal with City officials Soriano and Begiristain, both of who worked with Pep at Barcelona.
Manuel Pellegrini’s contract is set to be terminated even though the Chilean has a deal upto 2017.
Manchester City were expected to challenge on all fronts this season after a massive summer outlay.
The Premier league giants crashed to two consecutive defeats against Juventus and Liverpool and the City hierarchy are running out of patience as far as Pellegrini’s big game management is considered.
The Chilean has struggled to win big games time and again during his reign at the Etihad.
Bayern Munich are thought to be closing in on a move for Carlo Ancelotti as a replacement. The former Real Madrid manager will take over in the summer.
Ancelotti and Guardiola’s moves will come as a big blow for Chelsea and Roman Abramovich, who were looking to hire either of them if Mourinho fails to qualify for the Champions League this season. (reported earlier by Telegraph)
No team has ever made it to the top four after a start as bad as Chelsea’s and it seems the London club are running out of options with Simeone the only manager left.
