It would not be the first time that Pepe Guardiola would have tried to reunite himself with one of his former players. With the Spanish manager having moved to Bayern Munich from his former club Barcelona, the manager acquired Thiago Alcantara for the German side when he made the move.
And it seems that Guardiola may have the same thoughts in mind. However, this time, it’s not Thiago that he’s after, but that of Holger Badstuber. The 27 year old is still considered of the highest talent, but has struggled to break back into the first team at Bayern since he recovered from his latest long term injury, as the German side have the likes of Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng in their ranks competing for the same spots.
As a result, the player may be open to move to Manchester City to gain some first team football, despite him having played his whole career at Bayern, notching up 200 appearances for the club.
With the player having just 6 months left on his contract, he could be available relatively cheaply, and with Manchester City struggling defensively at the moment, it could be a great move for the club to acquire the player. Obviously we would be sad to see him go, but we can understand that the move would be attractive to him.
