The former Barcelona manager joined Bayern Munich in 2013 signing a three-year contract. He has already won two Bundesliga titles with the Bavarian giants and looks set to add a third in the summer.
The 44-year-old was speaking today at a press conference when he announced his intention to manage in the Premier League. Squawka reports that Guardiola has not made a decision on his next destination.
"When I have a new club, the club will communicate that. At the moment, I can't say anything else because nothing is fixed."
