Barcelona Trying To Lure Pep Guardiola Return To Catalonia

As has been well documented, Pep Guardiola has just under two years left on his current City deal.

Back in August, he flirted with the concept of moving into international management in 2023 before immediately backtracking on his remarks.

Now, it seems that Barcelona president Laporta is planning to make the City manager an offer he cannot refuse.

According to El Nacional, Laporta is doing “everything in his power” to convince the former Barça player and coach to return to Camp Nou.

The president of Barça, who has an excellent relationship with the Catalan coach, is aware that getting Guardiola back on the Camp Nou bench is an almost impossible mission, as the coach has already stated on more than one occasion that his stage As a Blaugrana coach, he is already part of the past.

According to the same report, Laporta has already tested the option that Santpedor’s could return to Barça.

The president’s big dream would be for him to do it again as head coach, but if this circumstance is still vetoed in Guardiola’s mind, Laporta would be delighted if he would return with another position, either as an advisor to the president, linked to the Masia or Why not, as a sports director, attached to Mateu Alemany.

Between 2008 and 2012, Guardiola helped develop a Barcelona side widely perceived as one of the greatest club sides of all time, but he’s always maintained that his story with Barcelona is a thing of the past.
