first_img 5 The question of whether or not we will see Pep Guardiola in the Premier League next season has been answered, but now we all wait to see where it will be.The outgoing Bayern Munich manager looks 90 per cent set for Manchester City but with Chelsea now managerless and Manchester United possibly going the same way, the competition for Guardiola’s signature is really hotting up.There is also still the possibility that Arsene Wenger will step aside at the end of the season to allow Guardiola to take his place.And once he does eventually announce his destination, the next question that will follow is ‘who will he be bringing with him?’Click on the arrow above, right, to see which Guardiola favourites could be following him to the Premier League.  5 5 Thiago Alcantara – Guardiola brought Thiago with him from Barcelona when he joined Bayern Munich and is a firm favourite of his. A knee ligament tear in the early days of his Bayern career meant the player couldn’t make the desired impact initially, but recovered to become one of the first names on Guardiola’s teamsheets. David Alaba – Alaba is a versatile player who, like Thiago, is a favourite of Guardiola’s and can cover a number of positions down the left flank or even in central midfield. Despite being only 23, Alaba has been named in UEFA’s Team of the Year for two consecutive years and looks set to make it three at the Ballon d’Or award ceremony on Monday. The Austrian would be a perfect replacement for the attack-minded Aleksandar Kolarov at City or at Chelsea to allow Cesar Azpilicueta to move to right back. 5 Sergio Busquets – Guardiola gave Busquets his chance at Barcelona, a move that signalled the end of Yaya Toure’s career at the Camp Nou. Should the outgoing Bayern boss make a move for Busquets, it could be the same situation again with Toure’s powers fading fast. The defensive midfielder would also fit in nicely at both Manchester United and Arsenal, too. 5 Robert Lewandowski – Upon arriving in Munich, one of Guardiola’s first orders of business was to persuade Lewandowski to sign a pre-contract agreement with the Bavarian club. The Poland striker has been in scintillating form this season and whatever club Guardiola ends up at, Lewandowski would be a great fit for the Premier League. Lionel Messi – Guardiola’s presence, Messi and his father’s tax problems in Spain and the huge influx of money from the new Premier League TV deal next season mean this possibility is as real is it has ever been. Could we really see Messi on a Guardiola teamsheet again next season?last_img read more
