Pep's Next Club Already Confirmed?

With Pep Guardiola's contract at Manchester City set to expire in 2025, an executive at the club has seemingly hinted at the Spaniard's next move.

All good things come to an end and eventually so will Guardiola's time at the Etihad Stadium, and the two-UEFA Champions League manager would reportedly be open to a new challenge at that point.

Having already dominated domestically in Spain, Germany and England, the 51-year-old tactician could yet find himself on a Serie A touchline, or at least that is what City CEO Ferran Soriano thinks.

The City Football Group recently acquired a majority stake in Serie B side Palermo, and with Guardiola's contract in Manchester currently set to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign, the move to one of City's sister clubs would be a seamless transition and could the next step in his career, especially as he has yet to manage in any of the Italian leagues.

"He [Guardiola] asked if it's sunny in Palermo. Perhaps, he will work here one day," Soriano said, as per Calciomercato.

"He knows everything we do and he knows Italian football well.

"Like the others, he is excited about the deal."

Guardiola spent two years in the Italian top flight as a player after his Barcelona career came to an end, enjoying spells at Brescia and AS Roma before moving on to Qatar.

Here are eight transfers that were confirmed over the weekend:
