Pep Guardiola has ‘verbally agreed to sign four-year deal with Juventus’

Pep Guardiola has agreed to replace Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus, according to the journalist who broke the news that Cristiano Ronaldo would move to Turin.

Il Giornale reporter Luigi Guelpa told Radio CRC that the Manchester City boss had been offered a four-year contract at Allianz Stadium.

“I’ve learned that Pep Guardiola already has reached a verbal agreement with Juventus for the next four years. It’s the same person who told me that Ronaldo was going to Juventus,” Guelpa said.

City fans will not welcome suggestions that the Catalan coach could be set to leave the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola has enjoyed considerable success in Manchester, with his side top of the Premier League, one point clear of Liverpool , as they chase a second title since he arrived in England in 2016.

Last month City secured a second League Cup under Guardiola with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea at Wembley.

City also remain in the hunt for the Champions League, and defend a 3-2 first-leg advantage when they host Shalke at the Etihad on Tuesday night.

Guardiola was brought to Manchester to help turn City into a dominant European force and it is easy to see why Juventus would be interested as the Italians prepare for Allegri’s expected departure.
