Current Citizens manager Manuel Pellegrini looks likely to leave the Etihad in the summer after a disappointing season in which they have failed to win a single trophy. Their defence of the Premier League title has been especially disappointing, with the team dropping off in January when Yaya Toure was at the African Cup of Nations and Sergio Aguero was injured.

Meanwhile Guardiola has come under pressure himself for his inability to match predecessor Jupp Heynckes’ accomplishments with Bayern. Before the former Barcelona boss came the Bavarian club had won the Champions League, DFB-Pokal Cup, and Bundesliga in one season.

Guardiola won the latter two in his debut campaign, but this time round they have been knocked out of the domestic cup and are 3-0 down after the first leg of their Champions League semi final with Barca. As a result the 44-year-old could move to the Sky Blues and see if he can repeat the success he had at the Nou Camp.
