With the news that Guardiola is set to manage in the Premiership next season, which team would be the best fit for the highly touted manager?
Clubs have been vying for Pep’s signature for years now, so this will come of no surprise to football fans. But with him managing Barcelona, the club of which he earned his managerial stripes and played for, he has inevitably ruled himself out of the Real Madrid job.
He currently manages Bayern Munich, so the next move had to be the Premiership, you can’t see him moving to the Serie A unless Juventus was available, but even then would the speed of the league suit him? And could he win the Champions League with any of the sides? Maybe? But not for me — the Premiership had to get Pep.
Which team suits him right?
Manchester United is probably the biggest club he could go to, but do they have the squad that would suit him? If they don’t who could he bring in to make them great again? He’s that great I believe he could win the league with the current crop. But for now though, I feel as if he’d want a squad that is equipped to win the Champions League right away.
This brings me on to the blue side of Manchester with City, they have arguably the best striker in Aguero, backed up with a spine of Hart, Kompany, Silva, De Bruyne, and albeit an ageing Yaya Toure. But that’s a squad, under Pep, that could really make a statement in Europe for once!
Lastly his final option could be Chelsea, they, similer to City, have a great squad and could excel in Europe under him. However they have a ruthless chairman who has just sacked Mourinho six months into a new contract. They have the players, minus a new centre back to replace Terry, but ultimately longevity could be an issue, unless of course that is something he’s not interested in.
Money not the decider
Ultimately every club can offer him the wage, so I don’t think money will be the decider. I think he won’t want to damage his reputation and will pick the team, he feels, he has the best chance of success with.
