The BBC’s Simon Stone has today reported on Pep Guardiola’s possible first match in charge of ManchesterCity.
Long before the 2016-17 Premier League seasons gets underway, the EPL sides will travel the globe for their pre-season schedule.
China is set to host games as part of the International Champions Cup, and a match in Beijing could pit Pep’s City against Manchester United.
Will it be Pep Guardiola v Jose Mourinho?
Man United fans will surely be hoping that Louis van Gaal is long gone by the time pre-season starts, and the Special One is hotly tipped for the Old Trafford dugout.
It’s worth stressing that the ManCity v Man United game is currently just speculation. Confirmation is set to be given later this week.
Yet, Man United fans will likely be licking their lips of handing Guardiola a defeat in his first game in charge, following yesterday’s 1-0 win at the Etihad in the derby.
