According to ESPN, Guardiola is unlikely to accept a new contract with the Premier League champions when his current term expires in 2025.

According to the article, Guardiola may want to join the national squad after leaving City. In recent years, he has been associated with both the Brazilian and US national teams.

In fact, the Spaniard has already stated that managing on the international scene is a “dream” of his.

“In our lives we have dreams of what we’d like to do in the future, but it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen,” Guardiola said during a news conference in 2018.

He added: “I would like to play a World Cup and a European Championship. I would like to live that situation. When I see the World Cup, I think I would like to be there. I had just one chance to do it as a player.

“In eight, 12, 14 years maybe it could happen. It’s just a dream I have as a manager and a person. Maybe it happens, maybe it doesn’t.”

The 52-year-old, who signed a two-year contract extension with Manchester City in November, has also been mentioned as a possible England manager.

Gareth Southgate’s contract expires after Euro 2024, and the Daily Mail reports that the manager will step down after the tournament in Germany.

The FA is thought to be interested, with Todofichajes reporting that the FA has maintained communication with Guardiola regarding taking up the post after next summer’s competition.

They claim that Southgate’s future is uncertain and that if he fails to win the title, the FA may make a change because they believe Guardiola is the best person to “lead the new project.”

Since taking over as City manager ahead of the 2016/17 season, the former Barcelona manager has won five Premier League titles.

He also guided the team to its first Champions League title in 2023, when it defeated Inter Milan 1-0 in Istanbul.
