Pep Guardiola 2/7 favourite for Man City position
Where will the Spaniard head to next?
January 27th, 2016
Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola will have no shortage of clubs eager to secure his services, however Manchester City remain odds-on favourites at 2/7 to secure his signature once he leaves the Bundesliga champions at the end of the current season.
The 44-year-old has confirmed that he will leave the Allianz Arena for the last time this summer with ex Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti lined up as his replacement, however much speculation still surrounds Guardiola’s future.
The Spaniard is interested in a move to the English Premier League and the two Manchester clubs are at the top of the betting market with City being favourites for some time, although reports have been emerging that Guardiola met with the Red Devils last week.
Coral go 5/1 that Old Trafford is Guardiola’s next home once his contract with Bayern draws to a close, however the leading bookies aren’t optimistic that this will prove to be the case and the same firm go 2/7 that he heads to Manchester City at the end of the season.
Nevertheless, with Arsene Wenger apparently vacating the Gunners hot-seat at the end of 2016/17, there are many who believe that he could be leaving a year early should his men lift the Premier League title this term, thereby leaving the door open for the possible arrival of Guardiola. Sky Bet go 8/1 that the Bayern boss moves to the Emirates Stadium.
The same bookmaker goes 12/1 for Chelsea to tempt Guardiola to Stamford Bridge as they continue in their search for a permanent manager. The departure of Jose Mourinho saw Guus Hiddink appointed on a temporary basis and Guardiola has made it clear that he would prefer to manage a London club, therefore the likelihood is that we could be seeing him at either Stamford Bridge or the Emirates at the start of next season.
