Pep Guardiola ‘reaches verbal agreement’ to join Juventus

It seems the title race is the furthest thing from Pep Guardiola’s mind right now after a report from Italy revealed the Manchester City boss has agreed to replace Massimiliano Allegri as Juventus head coach.

Italian journalist Luigi Guelpa claims the Spaniard made a ‘verbal agreement’ to Juve on a four-year deal — throwing his commitment to winning another Premier League title with City into question.

“I’ve learned that Pep Guardiola already has reached a verbal agreement with Juventus for the next four years,” Guelpa told Radio CRC.

“It’s the same person who told me that Ronaldo was going to Juventus.”

With Allegri expected to exit the club after a successful five-year stint, Juve officials are assessing their options and the former Barca and Bayern manager is at the top of their wishlist.

Although a ‘verbal agreement’ has been reached between the two parties, it means nothing because no one is going anywhere until a deal is signed.

For Guardiola, though, his focus is clearly shifting and title-hungry City supporters won’t be happy if this turn out to be true.

The 48-year-old – who has guided City into top spot this campaign – has won league titles in Spain, Germany and England and would be valuable to any club looking for success.
