Man City-linked Guardiola to leave Bayern Munich – reports

first_imgManchester City have been put on red alert by reports claiming Pep Guardiola is set to announce his decision to leave Bayern Munich.The former Barcelona coach’s contract at Bayern expires at the end of the season and he has been strongly linked with the Premier League club, as questioned continue to be asked of Manuel Pellegrini’s leadership at the Etihad Stadium.On Wednesday Spanish newspaper Marca reported the 44-year-old has already informed the Bundesliga champions he is ready to seek out a new opportunity.It was also claimed Guardiola is prepared to reject a €20million-per-season offer to continue at the Allianz Arena.The Catalan has twice guided Bayern to the German title but the Champions League trophy has eluded him, with Real Madrid and then Barcelona eliminating the Bavarians in 2014 and 2015.Manuel Pellegrini remains in charge of City, but with doubts still surrounding his tactical expertise, the two-time Premier League champions could be tempted to move quickly and secure Guardiola’s services should he make himself available in the new year.Manchester United and Chelsea have also been linked with the former Spain midfielder, although City are likely to be able to trump their rivals with a huge contract offer. 1 Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola last_img
