MANCHESTER CITY boss Pep Guardiola is one of the main candidates to replace Brazil boss Tite after the World Cup, according to reports.
Guardiola‘s contract at the Premier League champions expires in the summer of 2023.
Brazil would offer the Spaniard a deal up until 2026 and pay him just shy of £10million-a-year after tax.
That’s considerably less than the £16m he currently picks up at City.

Guardiola has already revealed his desire to manage at international level, having won 15 league titles as a player and manager.
He has said: “I would like to be an international manager in a national team.
“Sooner or later, it will happen because every three days I would like to be involved, but a little bit more calm, play more golf… now I do not have time to play.
“So yes, sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have a chance and some international team wants to come ‘knock knock’ [at my door]. We will see.”

Guardiola also said on Man City last year: “After seven years on this team, I think I’m going to have a stop.
“I’m going to have to take a break, see what we’ve done.
“And in the process, I would like to train a South American [team], European [national side], playing a Copa America – I want to have that experience.”
