Pep Guardiola Approached For International Job, There's 'Growing Confidence' He'll Accept

​Pep Guardiola has been approached for an international head coach position, with stunning reports claiming there's 'growing confidence' that he'll accept. 

Guardiola has worked wonders at Manchester City since taking charge in 2016, guiding the club to incredible domestic success having bagged an impressive three Premier League titles. 

Not to mention four EFL Cups and an FA Cup triumph in 2019.

The 51-year-old is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2023, with Spanish outlet Marca claiming Brazil want to make Guardiola their national team manager. 

The Brazilian FA are looking at replacing Tete after the upcoming 2022 World Cup and have sounded out the Spaniard. 

Their intentions have been relayed to his brother and representative, Pere.

It's understood that Brazil have offered Guardiola a four-year deal, with a proposed salary of €​12 million (£10 million) after taxes. 

He's currently earning €20 million (£17 million) at Man City.

Guardiola was asked about the reports linking him with the Brazil job ahead of his side's huge fixture against Liverpool.

But he remained tight-lipped and didn't give too much away. 

He said: "Brazil has very good Brazilian coaches who have to coach the national team... There are very good Brazilian coaches. Debate closed!"​​​​

If Guardiola accepts Brazil's offer, then it'd be his first coaching gig at international level, having managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich. 

He's enjoyed tremendous success at Barca, Bayern as well as Man City, with a switch to international management on the table.
