Pep Guardiola to Juventus: Manchester City boss set to leave his managerial role to lead Juventus after agreeing personal terms.
According to several reports, Manchester City manager is set to snub his club to join Juventus from the following season as the departure of Massimiliano Allegri makes the managerial spot at Juventus vacant.
Moreover, Juventus’ Vice-Chairman Pavel Nedved has admitted his requirements for the next manager of the Old Lady, and who could be a better man than Pep Guardiola for the task.
It is not for the first time, when Spaniard’s name with Juventus got linked, but Allegri’s sacking has surely fueled the speculations of him joining the Italian Club.
However, while asking to Pep Guardiola after the FA Cup final about the possible move to Juventus, the Manchester City boss denied the rumours.
“I’m not going to Juventus or to Italy. I have two more years here. I’m not going to move, I’m satisfied here, I’m not going anywhere. Next season I will be manager of Manchester City.”
On contrary, Radio Sportiva journalist Federico Gennarelli tweeted on Tuesday night to say that Guardiola’s four year contract with the Old Lady was a ‘done deal.’
Here’s the tweet

If this is true then possibly Pep Guardiola has opted to take a new challenge again, and Juventus is one destination, which can provide him the adequate resources to conquer the Europe again.
On the other hand, Manchester City’s probable ban from the Champions league can thwart his dream to win the highest prize of Europe for another year. Thus, making Juventus a viable destination for the Spanish manager.
