Now into his third season with Manchester City, and with a contract which runs for a further two years on top of that, Guardiola has started thinking about how his career will wind down...

Having spent most of his playing career with the club, Guardiola started out as a coach of Barcelona's B side in 2007.

Guardiola won three LaLiga titles, two Champions Leagues and two Club World Cups in a memorable four years before enjoying similar levels of success with Bayern Munich.

Guardiola has previously ruled out returning to Camp Nou to coach the senior Barca side but has been linked with a possible return as sporting director.

"Hopefully, it will be Barca's", he told the Universo Valdano show, which will air in Spain on Thursday night.

Barcelona B play in the Spanish second division and give experience to promising young players who may eventually make the huge leap up to first-team football.
