Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will leave Bayern Munich in the summer as he wants to manage
Manchester Un in the Premier League.
Guardiola stated last month that he would not renew his contract with Bayern, with his deal expiring in the summer of 2016.
Speculation has since mounted over the Spaniard’s future, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United constantly linked to the former Barcelona manager.
Manchester City appear to be the favourites to secure Guardiola’s services however, with Manuel Pellegrini likely to leave the club in the summer.
Guardiola said on Tuesday: “I want to coach in Premier League. That is the reason I did not prolong my contract.
“I need a new challenge and would like to take the opportunity to be a coach in England.
“I want to experience the atmosphere there. I’m 44, it’s the right moment to go there.
“I want new stadiums, cities and restaurants to know.
“There are offers, but I haven’t signed anything yet. If I have a new club, they’ll communicate it.”
