Pep Guardiola is set to announce his decision to leave Bayern Munich, according to reports in Spain.
The 44-year-old ex-Barcelona coach has been linked with both Manchester City and United but he is expected to choose the former.
On Wednesday, Marca reported that Guardiola has already informed the Bundesliga champions he is ready to seek out a new opportunity. The newspaper further claimed he is prepared to reject a 20 million euro 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.
He took a year’s sabbatical after four successful seasons leading Barca and was announced as Jupp Heynckes’ summer replacement in the Bayern dugout back in January 2013.
Manuel Pellegrini remains in charge of City, but 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.
