City CEO: Where Pep could go next

English Premier League

A Manchester City chief has revealed where he thinks Pep Guardiola could end up next when his time at the Etihad concludes. 

Since retiring as a player, the Citizens manager has enjoyed a trophy-laden career with the three senior teams he has managed to date: FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now City.

The Spanish boss was expected to leave the Manchester club at the end of the upcoming campaign, but he reportedly agreed a deal in principle to extend his stay until 2025 in May.

However, neither Guardiola nor the club has confirmed this extension, which means the tactician's contract is still one year away from expiring.

With the City Football Group having officially purchased a majority stake in Serie B side Palermo on Monday, the Premier League club's chief executive officer Ferran Soriano has since suggested that the head coach could be on his way to Italy next.

"He asked if it's sunny in Palermo. Perhaps, he will work here one day," Soriano told Calciomercato.

"He knows everything we do, and he knows Italian football well.

"Like the others, he is excited about the deal."

Guardiola enjoyed two spells in Italy during the latter stages of his playing career, when he plied his trade with Brescia and AS Roma.
