Bayern’s Guardiola says he’ll announce future intentions next week

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has a top managing resume. In six seasons as a top-flight manager between Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he has five first-place finishes.

The 44-year-old tactician has been to six UEFA Champions League finals, winning two and making the semifinals in the other four.

So he’ll be, quite honestly, able to pick his location if he does leave Bayern Munich when his contract expires this summer. Frankly, a number of clubs would probably fire their current boss just to line up a shot at the Spaniard.

And Guardiola’s a bit tired of the speculation, and ready to speak out. Just not now.

From Sky Sports:

“Tonight I have no answer. Next week you will know the answer. Next week there will be clarity,” Guardiola told German broadcaster ARD.

He’s leaving, right? After winning 74 percent of his games between two of the world’s top leagues, it seems he’s up for a new challenge (especially if Bayern can claim the UCL title this season).

Whether the Premier League is the destination (seems likely), or an international side comes calling, a new job looks likely. Think there’s any chance he stays at the Allianz Arena beyond this summer?
