Speaking to Marca, Valenti Guardiola has claimed that his son Pep could return to Barcelona at some point in the future, as he has fond memories of his time at the club. The Spaniard, currently at the helm of Manchester City, has had a fruitful time in England, winning back to back Premier League titles whilst breaking a handful of long-standing records.

"It could be a yes, that he returns to Barcelona, but it would be to coach. Since he left home, he has always made his own decisions. I've never advised him."

Since leaving the Catalan giants in 2012, Guardiola replaced Jupp Heynckes at Bayern Munich and won three successive league titles, before taking over the reins at Manchester City from the outgoing Manuel Pellegrini.

The Spaniard is widely regarded as the most successful manager of his generation and oversaw one of the most iconic periods in the club's decorated history, as he won the Champions League twice and played a pivotal role in Lionel Messi's development as a player.

Although the Spaniard is contracted to Manchester City until 2021, there have been reports that he could leave at the end of the current season after growing disillusioned with life in England.
