Bayern Munich coach has reportedly agreed to replace Manuel Pellegrini as Manchester City manager for 2015-16.

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has reportedly reached a verbal agreement to manage Manchester City next season.

The Qatari-owened global sports channel beIN Sports' Arabic account tweeted on Saturday: "Urgent - sources beIN SPORTS: Manchester City reached a tentative agreement with Bayern Munich coach Guardiola to train the team for next season."

While it is no secret City chiefs Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain are desperate for Guardiola to coach The Blues, the Catalan is contracted to Bayern Munich until next year.

However, Guardiola's position at Bayern has weakened following the midweek Champions League semi-final drubbing they suffered at Barcelona.

Bayern were also eliminated from the German Cup semi-finals in a penalty shootout defeat to Borussia Dortmund last week.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been roundly criticised in recent months over the deposed champions' European form and their unsuccessful defence of their Premier League title.
