According to German outlet Sport Bild, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is ‘unhappy’ at the Etihad and the Premier League winner is on Bayern Munich’s shortlist for a new boss.
Guardiola managed the German giants for three years before taking the reins at City. Sport Bild’s report also claims that the Spaniard maintains a strong relationship with Bayern’s hierarchy.
The Athletic (subscription required) revealed earlier this week that the former Barcelona boss still holds a property in Munich.
The Bavarians recently relieved Niko Kovac of his duties as manager and Guardiola joins PSG’s Thomas Tuchel and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag as a candidate to take over at the Allianz Arena.
Guardiola has won two Premier League titles during his time in Manchester but the tactician has struggled to lead City to a Champions League triumph.
With Sport Bild reiterating that Guardiola stated that he’d return to Bayern when he announced his exit, perhaps a return to Germany is the next step in the 48-year-old’s career.
