Manchester City have a potential successor to Pep Guardiola in Michel Sanchez, if the Spaniard decides to leave the club. Guardiola, who led City to the historic treble, is expected to leave the club in 2025 when his contract expires.
Girona’s current form in La Liga under Sanchez is attracting attention; They are at the top of the table, ahead of Real Madrid. Girona sporting director Kiki Carcel believes that Sanchez is a suitable successor to Guardiola at Manchester City. He confirms that Sanchez still needs time to prepare for a big club like City. Sanchez, who is currently under contract with Girona, is in close contact with Guardiola through their joint connection with City Football Group.
Girona midfielder Alex Garcia has confirmed the close ties between Sanchez and Guardiola. According to Garcia, Sanchez is learning a lot from Guardiola through their contacts across the City group. He stresses that Sanchez, who feels comfortable at Girona, can show his personality in a successful project, which could prepare him well for a bigger challenge such as Manchester City.
The Girona coach was also previously linked with a move to Barcelona. At Manchester City, you could also consider Vincent Kompany if Guardiola leaves, but that does not appear to be the case at the moment.
