The front-page of Sportbild is dominated by the face of Guardiola, as they claim that the Munich boss could be tempted by the ‘million dollar lure’ of managing the home nation, Qatar, of the World Cup in 2022.
The 44-year-old ended his playing career in Al-Ahli SC and officially endorsed Qatar’s bid to host the world football tournament, providing the Spaniard with strong links to the Gulf state.
There is speculation, according to the Mirror, that discussions between Qatar and Guardiola are already underway, yet the Barcelona legend admitted in the book Herr Pepp that, before seeking management with an international club, he would like a job in English football.
With the former defensive-midfielder hinting that he may not remain with the German giants beyond his current contract’s expiration in 2016 by showing no signs of signing an extension, his long-term future with the Bundesliga outfit does remain uncertain.
