Bayern Munich set to make first move for Pep
It is now time for some managerial speculation here in the Football Transfer Tavern, courtesy of Zarif Rasul of talkSPORT.
It is understood Bayern Munich have made the first move to tempt Pep Guardiola back into management, with an offer to take over at the Allianz Arena in the summer.
Guardiola has been out of work since the end of last season, when he stepped down as Barcelona manager. He has been strongly linked with a host of top jobs, and is thought to be Chelsea’s top target to replace interim manager Rafael Benitez at the end of the season.
Manchester City have also been linked with a managerial change at the end of the season, whilst Manchester United are thought to be keen to make Guardiola Sir Alex Ferguson’s long-term successor at Old Trafford.
But Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have made the first move, as they seek to replace coach Jupp Heynckes, whose contract expires in June.
According to German sources, senior Bayern chiefs held talks with Guardiola’s representative Josep Maria Orobitg, who spent a few days in Munich last week.
