Guardiola to lead 'American' Roma?

After Pep Guardiola hinted he'd soon be leaving Barcelona, there are reports he's heading for the new ‘American' Roma.

The manager told Italian television this week that he felt his time at the Nou Camp “would soon be at an end.”

He had initially been linked with the Inter bench as a replacement for Leonardo, but a different theory has emerged.

Roma will be under new ownership as of the summer, when American investor Thomas Di Benedetto completes his take-over.

The club is set to make heavy investments in the squad and want a top Coach to lead the way, though Carlo Ancelotti said he won't be taking the job quite yet.

Newspapers in Rome suggest Guardiola would be the perfect choice and help create a new ambitious project.

When asked what he'll be doing at Roma next season, Vincenzo Montella joked: “I could be Guardiola's assistant manager.”
