Man City manager Pep Guardiola is set ‘to leave’ Man City next summer as club draws up elite four-man shortlist

Pep Guardiola will be leaving Manchester City in the summer of 2020, and the team has already assembled an incredible four-man shortlist.

Man City won the Premier League for the fourth time in a row this season thanks to Guardiola’s inspiration.

Since joining the Etihad in 2016, he has an amazing six league championships to his record.

However, The Daily Mail reports that Guardiola will likely leave his tenure as Man City’s manager at the end of the next campaign.

With just a year remaining on his present contract, insiders predict the Spaniard will leave when it expires.

Having guided the team to 15 major trophies, including the club’s first Champions League triumph, Man City will give Guardiola time to consider his options and want him to stay in command.

The club’s management emphasizes that he has not made any official announcements, but they are afraid that his ninth year will mark the end of his incredible run.

Before assigning a replacement for the 53-year-old, club executives are focusing on four managers.

According to the source, Xabi Alonso, Roberto De Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, and Michel of Girona are all considered contenders to succeed Guardiola in the summer of 2025.

Nagelsmann, who has managed Bayern Munich in the past, is under contract through 2026 and will lead Germany in Euro 2024.

Alonso is well-regarded after his remarkable success at Bayer Leverkusen, despite turning down the opportunity to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

Guardiola also thinks highly of De Zerbi, who is now without a team after leaving Brighton.
