Pep Guardiola is set to part ways with the Bavarian giant in the summer, it is confirmed by both parties of the deal. City have released a statement on their site that the Spaniard will be their next manager after Manuell Pellegrinie's contract runs out in the summer.
Pellegrini will leave on 30 June and it is said by trusted football news, that Guardiola has agreed on a three-year contract to become Manchester City boss in the summer. The club said negotiations with former Barcelona coach Guardiola had been "a recommencement of discussions that were curtailed in 2012".
Back in 2012, City's boss was Roberto Mancini, who has led them to domestic title that year. Next year Pellegrini took charge and led City to domestic double, winning the league and league cup. But can he match the Italian's success and lead his team to title this season? This remains to be seen.
Future appointment of the former Barcelona manager will not come as a huge surprise, but the timing of this announcement definitely is. Manuel Pellegrini is still in charge and is still hoping to win four trophies; Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and the Champions League.
How will this news reflect on both players of Man City and Bayern is left to be seen. It could be a positive shock or the players might let themselves underperformed. A truly risky and bold statement to release at the peak of the season.
Nevertheless, Man City finally got their man and will try to make the Spaniard happy and content for as long as possible, that is if he delivers the goods.
In order for Guardiola to play his famously called tiki-taka football, City's Abu Dhabi owners will set initial transfer budget to a staggering 200 million pounds for future signings!
No doubt the combination of the charismatic Catalan's coaching brilliance and the financial backing he will receive makes this a partnership the rest of football world could come to fear.
