Pep Guardiola five destinations if he leaves Man City, could be inspired by Arteta

Pep Guardiola five destinations if he leaves Man City, could be inspired by Arteta

It is speculated that Pep Guardiola may leave Manchester City following the recent charges of over 100 financial offenses made against the club by the Premier League.

 The possibility of the departure of Guardiola is being compared to that of his former assistant Mikel Arteta. SportsDias has listed five potential destinations for the Spanish coach should he decide to make a move.


Guardiola’s managerial career began at Barcelona, where he served as head coach from 2008 to 2012. During his time there, he achieved a great deal of success, winning multiple titles such as the Champions League twice, Club World Cup, and La Liga three times. His time at Barcelona has become a defining period of his career, establishing him as a successful and innovative manager.

And last month he said: “If I’m training here, wherever and Barcelona calls me, I’ll go to Barcelona – it’s my club.” Those comments came as Guardiola was speaking about Arteta, who spent three-and-a-half years as his No 2 at the Etihad Stadium before jumping ship to return to his former club Arsenal.

“This boy likes Arsenal,” explained Guardiola. “Everyone has dreams and I know he went to his club, the club he dreamed of. He was a fan of Arsenal by playing there, he was captain and he loved that club so I did not want to oppose him. Life is too short. You have to fly.”


It’s possible that Guardiola could leave Manchester City following the club’s recent financial charges by the Premier League. He could follow the path of his former assistant Mikel Arteta and look for a new job. One of the potential options could be Newcastle United, who are now financially backed by a wealthy Saudi-led consortium and could hope to replicate Guardiola’s success at Manchester City by hiring him as their manager at St James’ Park.

Inter Milan

Guardiola’s successful managerial career includes time at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. He has yet to manage in Italy, but he could be open to the possibility of managing Inter Milan if the opportunity arises. Mourinho has proven that it’s possible to win major trophies with Inter, as he led them to Champions League success in 2010. Guardiola could also be confident in his ability to achieve similar success in Italy.

England national team

It’s been reported that Guardiola has previously expressed an interest in international management, and if he were to express an interest in taking over from the current England manager Gareth Southgate, he would likely be welcomed by the Football Association.

“Gareth is doing an incredible job and has just signed a new contract, so congratulations,” Guardiola said back in 2021. “But when I finish here, it would be a pleasure to live a World Cup or Euros. I would like that – but normally it is not easy because there are so few positions.”

Spain national team

Guardiola has previously stated his desire to manage a national team, and has expressed a particular interest in coaching the Spanish national team. He won 47 caps as a player for Spain and in a 2017 interview with Gary Lineker, he said that he would like to coach in international tournaments like the World Cup or the European Championships. “I would like to coach Spain I think. I would like to coach at a World Cup or a European Championships one day.”
