Brazil reportedly want Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to succeed Tite after the 2022 World Cup.
Current boss Tite recently revealed that he plans to leave his role following this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.
“I’m going until the end of the World Cup,” said Tite. “I have no reason to lie here. I don’t want to win any way. I’ve won everything in my career, the only thing missing is the World Cup.”
Guardiola has been identified as the ideal man to succeed the 60-year-old, as per Marca (via Give Me Sport).
The Brazil federation have reportedly started talking to Guardiola’s brother, Pere, and his representatives.
They will offer the City boss a four-year deal until the 2026 World Cup, with a €12m per year salary. He reportedly earns €20m at the Etihad Stadium.
Brazil have ‘great confidence’ they can convince Guardiola to accept the role. The Spaniard is under contract in Manchester until 2023.
Guardiola has previously revealed his desire to step into international management, saying in 2018: “I would like to be an international manager in a national team.
“Sooner or later, it will happen because every three days I would like to be involved, but a little bit more calm, play more golf…. now I do not have time to play.
“So yes, sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have a chance and some international team wants to come ‘knock knock’ (at my door). We will see.”
Meanwhile, Owen Hargreaves believes City star Phil Foden is the “most unique footballer” in the world following his instant impact from the bench in his side’s win over Atletico Madrid.
The 21-year-old entered the fray in the 68th minute with the game goalless and brilliantly set up Kevin De Bruyne moments later.
“He’s able to do this as a false nine, as a right winger, as a No.10, as a deeper midfielder, he can play off the left. It’s hard enough to play at this level, he can play at a world-class level in four or five different positions,” Hargreaves said on BT Sport.
“The thing is with Phil he’s one of one, he’s the most unique footballer around, When you see videos of him playing when he’s 10 he’s half the size of everyone else but now I think Phil’s still at the beginning of his development, I think there’s much more to come.”
