Is Pep Guardiola really about to leave Manchester City for Juventus?

Italian media reported earlier this week that the revered Catalan coach, who has just helped City win an unprecedented domestic treble, had agreed a four-year deal to replace Massimiliano Allegri in Turin.

Was this standard silly-season nonsense? Or was there actually more to it?

Well, the bookmakers are rarely wrong and they currently have Guardiola as their favourite to become the next Juve boss.

And now one of Italy’s leading news agencies are reporting that the news is, in fact, true.

Per Football Italia, Agenzia Giornalistica Italia (AGI) are reporting that Guardiola has agreed a four-year contract worth a massive €24 million a season.

They add that he will put pen to paper on June 4, before being officially unveiled by the Italian giants 10 days later.

“That corresponds to the line run by Radio Sportiva, as well as Onda Cero’s claim that the Catalan was in Milan on Tuesday talking to Fabio Paratici,” Football Italia state.

Friday, June 14 is the day that Guardiola is expected to be unveiled by Juve.

This may explain why tickets to enter the J-Museum and tour the Allianz Stadium have unexpectedly been removed from sale for the same day.

Guardiola, 48, joined City in the summer of 2016 and has transformed the club’s style of play, helping them win a host of major honours in the process, including two Premier League titles and the FA Cup.

He has been unable to help City win the Champions League and was not expected to leave the Etihad Stadium until he’d achieved that objective.

However, if these increasingly widespread reports from Italy are to be believed, Guardiola will be coaching Cristiano Ronaldo and co. in Turin from this summer onwards.

This would be a major blow to City, who would then face the nigh-on impossible task of searching for his replacement.
