Why Guardiola at City Is Bad News For The Premier League

Things could be about to get one-sided

So, it's official. The worst kept secret in football is out. Pep Guardiola will be bringing his managerial talents to Manchester City next season. 

As well as teaming up with former Barca colleagues Txixi Bergiristain and Ferran Sorrano, City's Sporting Director and CEO respectively, Guardiola will be inheriting the best squad in the Premier League, and will be given a clear mandate to spend heavily this summer in order to put his own stamp on the team.

Keeping Sergio Aguero, after recent interest from Real Madrid, also looks a certainty, as the current squad will all be keen to work with the highest profile manager in the game.

And with City's young players maturing all the time, Guardiola will be tasked with bringing multiple trophies to the Etihad - with the Champion's League top of his hit list.

It's a scary prospect for the likes Manchester United and Chelsea, who have not only missed out on Guardiola as a possible manager of their own, but also face major squad rebuilding work, and will have too much ground to make up on one of their biggest rivals.

Arsenal will also now have extra motivation to make sure they don't miss out this year.

So, while we can't wait to see Pep in the Premier League, there is an obvious downside. Anyone who's enjoying the tightness of the current Premier League table, with Leicester City in the running to win the title, the message is pretty stark: enjoy it while you can.
