Pep Guardiola recently hinted that the upcoming season might be his last at Manchester City, but no final decision has been made yet.

According to ESPN, Manchester City's management is requesting the Spanish coach to decide on his future with the club by the end of the year. They are keen for Guardiola to continue his tenure in Manchester, but in the event he chooses to leave, the club needs ample time to develop a succession plan and evaluate potential replacements.

Guardiola is reportedly leaning towards leaving Manchester City after the expanded FIFA Club World Cup in 2025. His current contract also expires that year.

It is also worth noting that recent reports indicated Manchester City's management has started looking for potential replacements for Guardiola. There are four candidates being considered for the position of head coach.

Additionally, there have been reports that both Bayern Munich and Barcelona, clubs Guardiola has previously coached successfully, are interested in bringing him back.

Guardiola has been managing Manchester City since the summer of 2016. Under his leadership, the "Citizens" have won five Premier League titles, and if they defeat West Ham in the final round of the current season, they will secure their sixth title.

Last season, Manchester City won the Champions League for the first time in their history.
