Would Pep return to the Catalan giants?
Regardless of what happens with Man City, would Pep entertain a Barcelona return?
He’s reached the heights of Champions League success twice with the club and he also played for the team, his legend status has already been confirmed.
But, it would have to be a very hefty offer to even tempt the Spaniard to return to his boyhood club.
Bernardo Silva seems the most likely option that Barcelona will consider as the Portuguese player has stalled on contract talks once again as he hints on an exit.
As it stands, Pep remains committed to Manchester City, hoping they can win yet another Premier League title whilst also perusing their maiden Champions League title.
It’s just rumoured at the moment and Guardiola insisted himself that he is going nowhere, Pep has a momentous task ahead of him on Wednesday against title rivals, Arsenal.
