The 44 year old led the Bundesliga giants to a domestic league and Cup double in his first season with the club last year, yet any discussions over a new contract beyond 2016 is not to happen until later on this year with the Spaniard waiting to see how successful the current campaign is to be.
According to Reuters, a new deal is largely hinged upon whether Guardiola leads his side to a Champions League title this season.
Bayern Munich’s Champions League hopes were destroyed by Real Madrid in the semi-final last year, and the defensive midfielder is desperate for the title this season.
However, Bayern Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has highlighted how favoured the Barcelona legend is at the club, insisting his lack of urgency to sign a new contract isn’t important:
“Pep can stay as long as he wants to. He is not a person who seeks security. He does not need a five-year deal to know how much he earns at Bayern,” said Rummenigge.
