Man City’s three choices to succeed Guardiola after Brendan Rodgers ‘agrees’ Man Utd move

Manchester City were reportedly interested in bringing in Brendan Rodgers to replace Pep Guardiola when the Spaniard decides to end his illustrious career at the Etihad Stadium.

 Manchester United, on the other hand, appears to have secured a’verbal agreement’ to bring the Leicester manager to Old Trafford.

The news will come as a shock to City executives, especially as they look to plan for the club’s long-term stability.

Most managers would jump at the chance to manage a team as talented as the Blues.

And the City hierarchy will undoubtedly do everything possible to ensure that the next manager has the same longevity and success as Guardiola, whose contract expires in 2023.

With Rodgers potentially out of the running, here are three potential candidates likely totake over at the Etihad according to Express Sport.

Mauricio Pochettino

After guiding Tottenham to the Champions League final on a shoestring budget, Mauricio Pochettino’s stock has skyrocketed among Premier League clubs.

Because they were using their magnificent new stadium, the north Londoners had little money to spend when the Argentine was in charge.

Pochettino has always expressed an interest in returning to England, and he may be the right man to succeed Guardiola.

The 49-year-old is currently in charge of Paris Saint-Germain, but he is struggling to get the best out of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar, which means he could be available sooner than expected.

Patrick Vieira

Patrick Vieira had his doubters when he took over as manager of Crystal Palace this summer, because he had been fired by French minnows Nice just a year before.

When he retired from playing for the Blues to become manager of their ‘Elite Development Squad,’ the former City midfielder got his first taste of management.

He then had a successful stint at City’s sister club, New York City, where he led them to the MLS playoffs in his debut season.

This season, he has led Palace to tenth place in the table. If he continues to shine in the top flight, he could be in line for a big promotion.

Julian Nagelsmann

A club with City’s ambitions should seek out the best and most innovative managers in the world, and Julian Nagelsmann fits the bill perfectly.

Bayern Munich signed the ex-Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig manager this season as they look to maintain their dominance in German football.

Nagelsmann, at 34 years old, is one of the game’s youngest elite bosses, but that means he has a bright future ahead of him.

And if Bayern ever makes him available, he could be the ideal candidate to replace Guardiola.
