With just three months left of football this season, one of the biggest clubs in Europe is believed to want Pep Guardiola as manager as well as sign Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk for €177 million ahead of the next campaign.

Despite struggling to compete with Liverpool this season, Manchester City manager Guardiola is still widely regarded as one of the best managers in world football, and of all time.

According The Sun, Italian giants Juventus are plotting a big-money swoop for the former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss, with reports suggesting that Maurizio Sarri might be facing the sack from the Serie A champions.

The Spaniard has been tipped to move on from the Citizens at the end of the season, despite the manager himself insisting he will remain in England.

It has been claimed that Juve chairman Andrea Agnelli is a huge fan of the tactician, and thinks that if he does leave City, it will be to take his career to Italy.

The same publication has suggested the club is also keen to move for Liverpool's defensive stalwart Van Dijk, and could do so with a mammoth bid of €177 million (R2.8 billion).

With Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci both in their thirties, the Bianconeri seemingly believe the Dutchman would be the perfect man to partner his Netherlands teammate Matthijs de Ligt in their defence.
