Pep Guardiola may only have been at Manchester City a matter of months but it seems he is already setting his sights on his next destination after leaving the Citizens.
The Spaniard has signed a three-year deal at the Etihad Stadium and has already admitted he is open to extending that deal depending on the circumstances.
However, with Guardiola only spending four seasons in charge of Barcelona and three seasons at Bayern Munich, it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if he did leave Manchester at the end of his current contract.

So, where can Guardiola go after City?
He’d have managed top clubs in Spain, Germany and England so the most logical choice would be international management.

Guardiola's next destination
And City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed that Guardiola is setting his sights on one national side in particular.
“Guardiola said to me that though they haven’t called him, he would love to coach the Argentina team,” he said, per The Sun.
Guardiola was considered for the Argentina job back in 2011 but with him being in the middle of his reign at the Camp Nou, he wasn’t tempted to take an early leap into the international scene.
But before he thinks about managing the South American country, Guardiola will be hoping to continue his incredible domestic managerial record in the Premier League.
Guardiola has been a senior manager for seven seasons, winning six league titles during that time, as well as reaching at least the last-four in the Champions League on each occasion - winning it on two occasions.
Guardiola's start at City
He’s certainly started life in Manchester rather impressively with them sitting at the summit of the league after seven matches. However, Guardiola has had the international break to reflect on City’s two previous results - a 3-3 draw with Celtic and a 2-0 defeat to Spurs before the players headed off to represent their countries.
With them facing Everton, Barcelona twice, Southampton, Manchester United and West Brom in their next six fixtures, Guardiola knows it’s an important period as his side look to continue their decent start.
But, if he leaves City in three years time, don’t be surprised to see Guardiola in charge of the Argentinian national side. Lionel Messi will be 32-year-old at the end of Guardiola's current deal and Aguero will be a 31-year-old - whether they will still be representing their country by then remains to be seen but Guardiola will no doubt love the chance to manage the Barcelona star again.
