Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola has pledged his future to the Bundesliga giants amid rumours Manchester City want him to succeed Manuel Pellegrini in the summer.

The 44-year-old former Barcelona boss insists that he is going nowhere in the immediate future, though, saying: “Of course I’ll stay here. I haven’t had a contract offer and I am not waiting for a contract offer from anyone else.

“I’m happy here at Bayern – this is an outstanding club. I want to fulfil my contract and do my job well, that is all I am thinking about at the moment.”

Guardiola is under contract at the Allianz Arena until the end of next season and has intimated that he is keen to discuss his future beyond June 2016 in the summer.

Guardiola was placed in charge of Bayern in the summer of 2013 and led the club to success in the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal, the
UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup last term.

This season Bayern look certain to retain their Bundesliga title as they are currently eight points clear at the top of the German top-flight.

They are also in a rich vein of goalscoring form having thrashed Hamburg 8-0, Paderborn 6-0 and Cologne 4-1 recently.

They have also won through to the last-16 of the Champions League and drew the first leg of their tie with Shakhtar Donetsk 0-0 in Ukraine last month.

Bayern are 1.17 to win the second leg on March 11 and 3.90 to triumph in the Champions League final in June.
