WINNERS

Bayern Munich

Guardiola is a blockbuster acquisition for the club known as FC Hollywood. Bayern are already one of the world's greatest clubs, but Guardiola's arrival will raise their profile even further.

José Mourinho

Mourinho is now the outstanding candidate for any major jobs that become available, whether in Manchester, London or Paris.

Roberto Mancini

If Mourinho also goes elsewhere, Mancini may keep his job by a process of elimination.

Rafael Benítez

With Guardiola taken, Benítez's chances of losing "interim" from his job description have increased.

David Moyes

Moyes is perceived by many as one of only three serious candidates for the Manchester United job along with Mourinho and Guardiola.

LOSERS

Roman Abramovich

His chosen one has chosen another, which means the Russian will have to draw up yet another plan if he decides to get rid of Benítez.

Manchester City

If Mourinho also goes elsewhere, they will have to look to the B-list should they want a new manager.

Jupp Heynckes

The current Bayern coach was expected to retire at the end of the season anyway, but his final months – which should include a Bundesliga title – will now be overshadowed.

The Premier League

The prospect of Guardiola and Mourinho resuming their rivalry in England has gone for now. The Premier League had no players in Fifa's World XI; now it has failed to attract one of the world's best managers.
