Pep Guardiola has a knack for waiting for teams to come to him with big piles of cash. He took a year off of coaching after leaving Barcelona before accepting the job at Bayern Munich. Now the 19-time trophy winner could be set to go on another sabbatical of sorts in preparation for Manchester United to show up at his doorstep.
According to The Sun, Guardiola intends to walk away from the Bundesliga giants when his contract expires at the end of the season and is willing to take a 12-month break from coaching if he has to wait for Louis van Gaal’s retirement in 2017.
Guardiola won league titles in three of his four seasons at Barcelona, and back to back Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich. He also has three League Cups, three Super Cups, two Champions League titles, three UEFA Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cups in his six years as a manager.
