Guardiola, 48, is fresh off a stunning Premier League title victory that saw them stave off Liverpool’s tilt by just 1 point in the end, in an absorbing title race that went down to the wire.
It was also his second Premier League title in two years, augmented by the fact that Manchester City completed the domestic quadruple along with Community Shield, Carabao Cup and FA Cup victories this season.

However, the Spaniard fell short on the European front yet again, as his team exited the Champions League after a close defeat to Tottenham in the quarterfinals.
He will inherit a squad comprising the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Leonardo Bonucci and others, though it has been rumoured heavily that the Italian champions will make key additions in the summer to shake things up after a meek Champions League exit to Ajax.
Guardiola’s reported move to Juventus will come as a hammer blow for Manchester City fans as the Spaniard had only just mentioned that he will stay on at the club for at least two more years, earlier this month.
