Pep Guardiola has announced that he wishes to manage in the Premier League once he leaves Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

It is an open secret that Guardiola is wanted by numerous Premier League clubs with Manchester City and Manchester United leading the way. Today he confirmed that England will be his next destination.

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."
