When Pep Guardiola, one of soccer?s most coveted managers, signed as coach of English club Manchester City in January 2016, the deal had been a work in progress for four years.

When Pep Guardiola, one of soccer?s most coveted managers, signed as coach of English club Manchester City in January 2016, the deal had been a work in progress for four years.
