Pep Guardiola's Manchester City clause
Pep Guardiola's secret release clause revealed: Contract agreement means he could leave at the end of the season... with Manchester City chiefs big fans of Mauricio Pochettino https://t.co/Ay5qW5SAyM | @MikeKeegan_DM— MailOnline Sport (@MailSport) December 12, 2019
An exit clause in the contract Guardiola signed last year gives the two-time Premier League winner the chance to leave City at the conclusion of the campaign, according to reports in the UK.
Guardiola's deal, which he renewed in May 2018, runs through to 2021, but it seems he will have a decision to make when the club's title defence comes to a close.
City have formulated contingency plans, according to the report, and are "known to be admirers" of former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Guardiola, 48, has been linked with a return to Bayern Munich but last month said he was "open" to signing another contract extension with City.
