With a manager sacked after three successive league defeats and a team seemingly set to leave the top four for the first time since the 2010/11 season, a potential replacement has emerged for Pep Guardiola who was sacked by Manchester City in April 2018.

The Argentine’s reign at the Etihad Stadium saw him win just three trophies and only three Champions League trophies during his three years as manager of the club, and it is understood that former Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has agreed to join the City coaching staff.

Manchester City are in the process of appointing a new manager to replace Guardiola after they were relegated to the Championship for the fifth time in his three seasons in charge.

A number of clubs have been linked with the Spaniard, including Bayern Munich, Juventus, Arsenal, Inter Milan, Roma and AC Milan, but no club has yet made a formal bid for the Spaniards job.

With City set to be without a manager for at least the next two weeks due to international break, it is believed Guardiola could be on his way out after failing to inspire City to victory in their Champions League quarter-final defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.
