His time at City appears to have come to an end

Pep Guardiola will depart Manchester City this summer to become Juventus manager, according to reports from Italy.

Guardiola has spent three years at City, winning two Premier League trophies, one of which was part of a historic treble this season. The Spaniard has only ever spent longer than three years at one club, Barcelona, but has repeatedly spoken of the need for a squad to hear a new voice after a certain period of time.

Juventus recently announced they would be parting ways with manager Max Allegri after five seasons during which time he won five Serie A league titles.

Guardiola failed to win the Champions League with City, but will be desperate to lift the coveted European trophy again with the Bianconeri, who have not won it since 1996.

With the king of the Champions League at his disposal, Cristiano Ronaldo, it could be the perfect match.
