Incoming Man City manager will be given £150m to spend next summer

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola will be given at least £150mi in funds to spend in the transfer market when he joins Manchester City this summer, according to reports from the Guardian.

Guardiola has been heavily linked with a move to the Etihad in recent weeks, but his switch has finally been confirmed by the Citizens with Manuel Pellegrini set to depart at the end of the campaign.

The Spaniard is already the best paid manager in the world, but his annual salary will increase to a massive £15.2m once he joins City.

The Sky Blues have been interested in bringing in Guardiola ever since 2012, but after his successful spell with Barcelona, he decided to take a sabbatical, which caused the Citizens to turn to Pellegrini instead.

And despite his summer exit, the Chilean has no problem with his replacement, being well aware of City’s desire to bring Guardiola to the helm.

The 45-year-old has won, as a manager, three La Liga titles, the Bundesliga twice, and two Champions League medals.
