‘Monster’ striker Elling Holland, 24, and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola may be leaving the club at the same time.
The UK’s Mirror published an article on Monday (July 1) suggesting that Holland’s departure from City could coincide with Guardiola’s departure from the club.
Holland joined City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2022. In his first season in the Premier League, he broke all striker records by scoring 52 goals in 53 games.
To top it all off, he helped City and Guardiola win the coveted UEFA Champions League, a triple that saw them dominate both the Bundesliga and Premier League.
But it’s unlikely he’ll stay at City. That’s because his father, Alf Inge Holan, appeared on television in a documentary called “Holan: The Big Dig” and hinted that his son would be at City for “three or four years at the most. 안전놀이터 Real Madrid is also believed to be Holland’s final destination.
“I think he wants to prove himself in every league,” said Alf Inge Holland, “and to do that, he can stay at City for three or four years at most. For example, two and a half years in Germany, two and a half years in England and two and a half years in Spain, Italy and France. Right?” he said.
Next season will be Holland’s third. It could be his last. He has the same contract as Guardiola. Holland’s plans could also affect Guardiola, who has been in charge of City since the summer of 2016. Holland reportedly canceled his £150 million buyout clause last year to stay with Guardiola.
As such, it is likely that Holland will stay with City as long as Guardiola is in charge.
On the other hand, the timing of Holland’s departure could coincide with Guardiola’s departure from City. In that case, the City dynasty known as “Pep City” would likely come to an end.
There has been speculation about when Guardiola, who is under contract until 2025, will leave City. Guardiola spent four years at Barcelona and three at Bayern Munich. He has been with City for eight years now. As such, local media outlets are reporting that the time for a farewell is nearing.
This is because several big clubs have been coveting Guardiola, who is currently considered the best manager in the world. Guardiola has won five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups, and one Champions League since taking over at City.
With Jürgen Klopp recently announcing his intention to step down at Liverpool at the end of the season, there’s been a lot of speculation about the future of his rival.
Guardiola hasn’t said much about his future so far. Some media outlets have speculated that Guardiola would be keen to make a name for himself as a national team coach after all he has accomplished as a club manager.
However, in an interview after Klopp’s resignation, 파워볼실시간 he said, “Next season will be my ninth and I have a lot of time left. Extending a contract after two years is not the same as extending it after nine years. I have a lot of time to decide. But I feel good right now.”
