Having announced just days before Christmas that he would venture out to England at the end of the season to continue his career in management, the Spaniard's next location was finally revealed at the start of the month, none other than the talent-filled title contenders Manchester City.
It's a move that will shaken up the entire landscape of English top flight football for the better. Gone could be the days where teams get exposed and ripped apart when showcased on a continental scale, because the introduction of Guardiola may just take things to another level entirely.
Many believe its a certainty that he will succeed. There are a handful of others who still view the move with plenty of skepticism. It may be a rhetoric but some truth still stands, there's nothing quite like the Premier League. His tactics may have helped him thrive in Spain and Germany, but how will they translate in pastures new?
Less than a decade ago is where the touchline duties of the manager really kicked off. Having enjoyed a successful tenure managing Barcelona's B squad, he moved up to manage the first-team who were in the midst of an illustrious era. Reinvigorating his predecessor Frank Rijkaard's usage of the 4-3-3, Guardiola built a dynasty with his famed possession football and effective pressure.
Effective utilisation of attacking full-backs gave plenty more freedom on the flanks while he got the best out of the mesmerising Xavi and Iniesta partnership by allowing them to build the core of the possession. After more frequent use of a 3-4-3 formation, which also transferred to Bayern Munich, Pep would soon learn that management wasn't all plain sailing.
Citing the immense pressure of managing one of the biggest clubs in the world, he would step down at the end of the 2012 season and had a year to reflect before taking on the challenge of further enhancing the brutal Bayern Munich's stronghold on Europe. He did so with flying colours.
Thanks to the substantial investments received at the blue side of Manchester, the Spaniard will have little to do when it comes to the transfer window, but even if he feels its a necessity the funds are available. The prospects of what he can do with the current squad are indeed tantalizing.
Manuel Pellegrini, the current man in charge at the Etihad Stadium, has done a fine job himself. In fact City would have found it hard to accept any other manager to replace him in such a way; the only thing the Chilean has not done to prove his worth as the manager is to not be named Pep Guardiola.
While the Citizens have stumbled at times throughout the campaign they remain in contention for the Premier League crown with the race for the title still as close as ever. At their best moments the Sky Blues have become ruthless and merciless wrecking machines, perhaps Guardiola is the man to make that even more of a frequent occurrence.
Seeing some authentic tiki-taka implemented into the Premier League would be quite the sight. What comes into question is if that will be as effective in the English top flight. There will need to be adjustments but those are a forgone conclusion; Guardiola of all people won't have the naivety to just walk into a nightmare - he will come prepared.
He is a proven manager on a global scale. For both Bayern and Barcelona he has constructed eras of dominance. At Manchester City however, they are on the cusp of becoming a European elite site. It will be a challenge for Guardiola to fulfil but one he should be able to conquer.
Instead of struggling, Guardiola could just revolutionize the English game like he changed the Bundesliga for the better. Competition in the league may be nothing like he's seen before, but soon enough, the silverware shall come flooding in.
