Stories of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola departing the Etihad are now gathering steam as the busy summer begins.
This is after Juventus’ Sporting Director Fabio Paratici was seen on Tuesday, May 21 outside the Palazzo Parigi Hotel in Milan, a place where the City boss lives.
Details of the story are not yet clear, but Italian publication Sportitalia claimed the pair had a private meeting, although it was not the purpose of Pep’s visit to Italy.
It is believed that Guardiola is in Italy for a charity event with sponsors.
Italian renowned journalist Federico Gennarelli has also had his say on the matter, claiming that the deal is already done.

The vacant seat in Turin would be appealing to Guardiola since the Italian giants own similar ambitions to his.
They made their intentions known by signing five-time Champions League winner Cristiano Ronaldo last summer as they seek their first success in the competition since 1996.
