A report says Bayern Munich is prepared to offer manager Pep Guardiola an approximately $26 million annual salary to stay at the Allianz Arena.
Guardiola’s contract expires after this season, and this new offer would give him almost $5 million more per season over two years.
The former Barcelona boss has been linked with seemingly every big job in Europe, whether the clubs in question have a managerial opening or not. From Manchester City to Chelsea to the Spanish national team, he’s a man in demand.
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has pushed to open talks at the start of the Bundesliga winter break.
Guardiola is understood to be open to discussions about his future and there is a growing feeling that the ex-Barcelona boss could end up staying.
That’s a whole lotta dough, but we imagine he could get even more in a bidding war between the giants of the Premier League.
