The Football Association (FA) is considering a move for Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, to replace Gareth Southgate as the national team’s head coach if the latter leaves the role after Euro 2024.

According to the Daily Mail, Southgate looks likely to step down after the tournament.

Although his contract expires in 2024, the prospect of the 53-year-old guiding the Three Lions to the 2026 World Cup has not been ruled out.

However, Guardiola remains a serious option for the FA.

The only stumbling block would be his contract at City, which runs until 2025.

Eddie Howe, Mauricio Pochettino and Graham Potter had all previously been considered options to take on the role, but the former two are currently in Premier League jobs.
