    The Spaniard penned a contract extension in November that will keep him at Manchester City until 2024.

    However Guardiola, 51, did reveal his next step will be international management and he hinted at a move to Brazil.

    He said: “The next step will be a national team, yes, if there’s a chance.

    “I must have a break after seven years (at City), I need to stop to watch, learn from other players and maybe that is the road I will take.
