Pep Guardiola’s ‘break clause’ allows him to leave Manchester City next summer – Mail


Could Pep decide to leave?

A ‘break clause’ in Pep Guardiola’s contract reportedly means the Manchester City boss could be free to leave the club next summer.

It’s certainly not been an ideal season for Guardiola and Manchester City.

There was plenty of optimism that the defending Premier League champions would put up another good fight this season.

However, that’s not been the case at all.

Manchester City have looked out of sorts in recent weeks, with poor results against Newcastle and Manchester United.

Their form has seen them fall an incredible 14 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

Safe to say, it would take a monumental swing to see Manchester City retain their crown now.

As a result, some questions are starting to be raised over Pep Guardiola’s future.

Now, the Mail have supposedly revealed that Guardiola actually has a ‘break clause’ which allows him to leave next summer.

Secret ‘break clause’

According to their report, the clause exists in the deal Guardiola signed last year which takes him up to 2021.

They claim: ‘the deal the Spaniard signed last year — which saw him extend his original contract until 2021 — included an agreement that he could depart at the conclusion of this campaign should certain stipulations that satisfy the club be met.

Those ‘certain stipulations’ are not reported by the Mail, but they do claim Manchester City expect Guardiola to honour his deal.

Though, ‘contingency plans will be looked at with officials at the Etihad Stadium known to be admirers of former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.’ 

Guardiola’s father also recently talked up a return to Barcelona.

While it looks unlikely Guardiola will walk out on City next summer, there’s still a lot of time for things to change.
