Guardiola to take over at City

Spaniard to replace Pellegrini next season

Pep Guardiola is to take over as Manchester City manager from next season, it has been announced.

The 45-year-old former Barcelona boss, who is currently in charge at Bayern Munich, has signed a three-year deal to replace Manuel Pellegrini.

There had been much speculation over the Chilean's future at the Etihad Stadium following a poor campaign last season.

Guardiola had been strongly linked with the role following his announcement that he would leave Bayern at the end of the current campaign, with the Premier League his most likely destination.

The Spaniard was also linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, but has now opted for City.

Although the club are currently second in the Premier League, are in the final of the Capital One Cup and fifth round of the FA Cup and have made it through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League, 62-year-old Pellegrini has paid the ultimate price for failing to deliver the level of success expected by the club's owners.
