The former Barcelona man won the Bundesliga title during his first season with the club, and looks on track to do the same thing again this year.
With his deal expiring at the end of next season however, Arsenal and Manchester City are keeping a close eye things.
“We won’t talk about the contract,” said Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
“He isn’t a man who extends his contract too early.”
Manchester City are thought to be keeping tabs on the Bayern boss in case they lose faith in Manuel Pellegrini; the Chilean looking dangerously likely to miss out on the Champions League last 16 yet again.
Arsenal on the other hand are looking for a long term replacement for Arsene Wenger, whose 18 year spell at the club could soon be coming to an end. Guardiola has been linked with a switch to the Emirates on a number of occasions, and has said before that he would like to manage in England someday.
