Pep Guardiola hints that he could leave Man City if they win the treble
Guardiola has previously remained coy on his future
Pep Guardiola has sparked talk that he may leave Manchester City at the end of the season if he secures a historic treble.
Man City are on course to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League season and would become the first English club since Manchester United in 1999 to win three trophies in one season if successful.
If completed, Guardiola would’ve won pretty much everything on offer and when reporters posed the idea that there wouldn’t be much else for him to achieve, the Spaniard said to “ask him after” they had completed the treble.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “First, we have to win it. [Then] you can ask me after and I will tell you how I feel and how I think.
“We are three games away and we need each competition to do it. [But] You are going to tell me that our city rivals, Man United, will be an easy game?”
"First of all we have to win it"

City take on United in the FA Cup final on June 3 before travelling to Istanbul to face Inter Milan in the Champions League final a week later.
As for their league campaign, the Citizens could win a fifth Premier League title in six years before they next kick a ball if Arsenal lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday (May 20).
Should Arsenal win at the City Ground, a win against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium will be enough to retain their Premier League crown while any dropped points for the Gunners will mean that City need just a point to keep the title in the north west.
