Agent: 'Pep Guardiola has agreed to become Manchester City manager'

FIFA agent Francois Gallardo claims that former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has reached an agreement with Manchester City to become their next manager.

Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has a preliminary agreement with Manchester City to become their next manager, according to Francois Gallardo.

The FIFA agent claims that the 41-year-old has made up his mind to move to the Etihad Stadium and will not listen to offers from other clubs.

"Guardiola has a pre-deal to be the next manager of Manchester City," The Mirror quotes him as saying. "No matter if Milan or whoever make offers to him."

Gallardo added that once Guardiola takes over at City, he will try to sign goalkeeper Victor Valdes from his old club Barcelona.

"It will be an offer to stun your mind," he said. "If I were Barcelona, I would be very concerned."

City appointed former Barcelona director of football Txiki Begiristain in a similar role in October and also took on former Barca financial vice-president Ferran Soriano as their CEO.
