“There is no smoke without fire” that says one proverb. Thus and management of Manchester City on Monday, February 1 took care to make the best gift to the fans. Certainly pretty much knew but otherwise it is to learn formally. Only then can you start doing and dreams. Manchester City then announced that Pep Guardiola in the summer and for the next three years will be the “boss” in the team, taking on the position of coach. Of course this means that the Chilean, Manuel Pellegrini to the end of this year´s season will be leaving Manchester.
The arrival of Guardiola in the City is definitely not accidental. Big role to accept the proposal and to leave Munich played his close friend and former partner in Barcelona, Txiki Begiristain. Technical director of the “Citizens”, after many hours of discussions with the Arab owners of the City convinced them that the only solution to enable the group to become powerful and be able to distinguish and in the Champions League which is a fervent desire of all fans and not only is the intake of Guardiola.
Eventually persuaded sometime factors of City they saw that money can be spent for the acquisition of important players, but especially in Europe and particularly in the Champions League group did not proceed. Guardiola that by summer will continue to offer its services in Bayern Munich is certainly a genius in his field. Wherever I have gone as coach, they all recognize the great job.
25 million euros a year
Pep Guardiola, far to Bayern Munich received annually 15.2 mil. Euro. Now with the new contract will receive 25 million euros. Will be that maybe the coach with the highest reward in the world. Cooperation formally with the English team starts July 1 but of course by then will devise plans to strengthen his new team. Until recently, first in the relevant list was Jose Mourinho at Chelsea took 17.9 mil. Euro.
170 million euros for transfers
Guardiola in his new team will have at his disposal the amount of 170 million euros in order to spend to strengthen their association. Pep would love to get close to Messi, but recently he speaking at the event for awarding the “Ballon D’or ” made clear that he wants to continue and complete his career in Barcelona. So Pep and the Begiristain elsewhere are forced to shed their look.
The English, “Daily Mail” that supports the top of the list of Guardiola is a French midfielder of Juventus, Paul Pogba, after the Bayern midfielder, Thiago Alcântara who knows him well, and the English stoppers Everton, John Stones. One of the most talented central defenders in Britain he knows Begiristain.
Similarly, the City is in trouble in the corner backs, and certainly the Pep will seek to get one or two. As for existing, the 35-year Demichelis and Mangala will probably give somewhere else. Questions and indeed are the big Ivorian midfielder, Yaya Toure had sold upon office Guardiola from Barcelona in the City. Doubts are they now and Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, Fernando, Wilfried Bony and Samir Nasri.
