Pep Guardiola has agreed terms with Manchester City, claims one agent. The former Barcelona coach has held talks with City sports chief Txiki Begiristain.

FIFA agent Francois Gallardo has told a Spanish radio station that City are already plotting to replace manager Roberto Mancini.

"Guardiola has a pre-deal to be the next manager of Manchester City," he claimed. "No matter if Milan or whoever make offers to him."

In what will no doubt be surprising news to City's England No.1 Joe Hart, Gallardo claimed City will also try to sign Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes.

"It will be an offer to stun your mind," he added. "If I were Barcelona, I would be very concerned."
