Pep Guardiola could reportedly decide to leave Manchester City this summer should the English champions be unsuccessful in appealing their two-season European ban.

On Friday evening, it was revealed that the Citizens had been handed a suspension from European competition for the next two seasons having committed offences in relation to UEFA's club licensing and Financial Fair Play regulations.

City have already revealed that they appeal the decision, although as it stands, the Manchester giants will not be eligible to take part in the Champions League until the 2022-23 campaign.

According to The Telegraph, Guardiola could decide to walk away from his position as head coach should the ban remain in place.

The 49-year-old has been in charge of City since July 2016 but his current deal at the Etihad Stadium will expire at the end of next season.

This term, the reigning Premier League champions are 22 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool, who are seemingly closing in on their first league title for 30 years.

Kevin De Bruyne will also allegedly consider his future should the UEFA decision stand.

Manchester City 'highly likely to receive Premier League points deduction'

Manchester City are 'highly likely' to receive a Premier League points deduction as further punishment for their "serious breaches" of UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations.

On Friday night, the Premier League champions were hit with a two-season ban from European competition having committed offences in relation to Financial Fair Play and UEFA's club licensing.

According to The Independent, the decision is expected to force the Premier League to hand out a punishment of their own due to licensing issues, meaning that a points deduction in England's top flight is likely to occur.

Pep Guardiola's side are currently 22 points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League table, while they sit one point clear of third-placed Leicester City.

Should the Citizens be unsuccessful in overturning their Champions League suspension then Pep Guardiola will allegedly review his position as head coach, while Belgian attacker Kevin De Bruyne could also reportedly seek an exit.

The four-time Premier League champions will be looking to bounce back from successive defeats to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur when they welcome West Ham United on February 19.

Inter Milan 'want Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to play alongside Romelu Lukaku'

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 30-year-old will see his contract at the Emirates Stadium expire at the end of next season, and it has been widely suggested that the Gabon international wants to seek pastures new this summer.

Barcelona have been strongly linked with the attacker, but Inter's Lautaro Martinez has allegedly now emerged as the Spanish club's leading target in the final third of the field.

Martinez's expected exit will open up a spot alongside Romelu Lukaku at San Siro, and according to The Mirror, I Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte is determined to bring Aubameyang to the club.

The report, however, claims that the Gunners are likely to demand £70m for the former Borussia Dortmund forward this summer despite the fact that he will be out of contract in 2021.

Aubameyang has scored 16 times in 27 appearances for Mikel Arteta's side this season, including 14 in 23 Premier League outings during a strong campaign.
