Argentina to appoint Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as new coach

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has allegedly emerged as a managerial target for the Argentine national team.

Last month, the South American nation did terribly bad at the World Cup, with Argentina struggling through the group stages before losing to France in the last 16.

Argentina present coach Jorge Sampaoli is expected to part ways with the team shortly and according to AS, the Argentine Football Association has set their sights on Guardiola.

The report alleges that the AFA are prepared to hand Guardiola a four-year deal worth £12m per annum, which would last until the end of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The Spaniard has only recently signed a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, but Guardiola has in the past indicated that he wants to manage a national team at some stage of his career.
