After the Champions League semi-final draw today, Twitter exploded with the prospect of the 'Pep final' - with a potential conflict of interest for Pep Guardiola if Manchester City face his side Bayern Munich in the final.

City take on Real Madrid in the semi-final, while Bayern face Atletico Madrid. Should both teams progress, a very interesting situation will present itself.

Guardiola will, of course, become City manager in the summer, ending his three-year spell with Bayern.

Ciry are currently in fourth place in the Premier League, four points ahead of rivals Manchester United who sit in fifth.

If City finish fifth or lower in the Premier League and then meet Bayern in the final, victory for Guardiola would mean denying himself Champions League football next season when he takes over at City.

HERE IS SOME OF THE BEST REACTION

The first-legs of the semi-finals will be the 27/28 April, the second-legs on the week of the 3/4 May. The final takes place on 28 May in Milan.
