Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has recently made headlines that he ready to return to coaching. Since his resignation from Barcelona seven months ago there has been plenty of speculation to where Guardiola will coach next. Since Pep's successful campaign at Barcelona, winning 14 trophies in just four seasons, he has been in high demand from clubs around Europe.

Below we have a look at the teams which are interested in his coaching services.


Before Rafa Benitez replaced Roberto Di Matteo at Chelsea, there was speculation that he would later be replaced with Pep Guardiola once he was ready to return to coaching. Now that Guardiola has publicly announced that he would like to make a comeback, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will try to persuade him to come to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City

It is rumoured that Manchester City approached Pep Guardiola last season as they could be considering replacing Roberto Mancini. With City exiting early from the Champions League for the second year in a row, Mancini's job could be under threat. Constant disputes between Mancini and his players including Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez, increases the chance of Guardiola being offered a contract.

Manchester United

When Sir Alex Ferguson leaves the coaching post at Old Trafford it is rumoured that Manchester United would like no other coach than Pep Guardiola as his successor. Although no-one knows when Ferguson will finally end his incredible coaching career this could delay Pep's arrival at Manchester United.

Bayern Munchen

Bayern Munchen is the book-makers favourite to sign Pep Guardiola. Current coach Jupp Heynckes has hinted that he will leave the German club when his contract expires this summer, which gives Gardiola the perfect opportunity to take his place. When asked about the possibility of replacing Heynckes, Guardiola said it would be a lack of respect to talk to a club who currently has a coach.

Other Possible Clubs

Other possible teams where Pep may receive a coaching offer from are Arsenal, AC Milan, Anzhi Makhachkala, Inter Milan, Paris Saint Germain, Juventus and Tottenham. Although these teams have not made any offers, rumours have surfaced that they may try to contact him in the future.
