Most recent club: Barcelona
Pep Guardiola is the biggest managerial name currently thought to be on the market. If he were a transfer prospect, he might be Radamel Falcao or Neymar—such is the intense interest he's sure to draw.
Guardiola, 41, left Barcelona at the end of last season after leading the club to 14 titles in four years. He developed Barca's trademark possession-based style and made the Blaugrana into one of the best club teams of all time.
This season, he's reportedly relaxing with his family in New York. But reports have already indicated he wants to return to management next season (via Daily Mail).
AC Milan, Manchester City and Chelsea have been listed as possible destinations (via ESPN FC).
What's next? It's too soon to know where Guardiola will manage next, or even whether or not he will return to the touchline next season.
It does, however, seem likely that he will be back next season.
Chelsea would be an interesting option, but so would AC Milan. The Rossoneri struggled at the start of this season and remain in 14th place in Serie A. Manager Massimiliano Allegri might be looking for work next season, and Guardiola might just be the man to replace him.
