Pep Guardiola spent four season managing Barcelona. You don’t need to be a star expert to figure out that there was no way he would ever manage at Real Madrid after that. That takes care of Spain.
While we heard rumors of AC Milan making a strong run at Guardiola, let’s be honest, the Italian league is currently the fourth best league in Europe. Not good enough for the standards of a man who just won 14 titles, including two Champions League titles, in four years with Barcelona. That takes care of Italy.
Do we really need to talk about why he wasn’t going to PSG/ France, or can we move on?
Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm, Holger Badstuber, David Alaba, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller aren’t just starters for a club that has played in the Champions League final two out of the last three season. They are all players that have gone through the Bayern Munich youth teams as well. As much money as Chelsea and Manchester City were willing to throw at Guardiola, I don’t think he will starve on what he will make at Bayern Munich. I rate Guardiola has a class guy - good youth development and a great run organization are clearly more important to him than money.
