Bayern Munich are willing to offer Pep Guardiola a huge new contract to keep him at the Allianz Arena, but even the former Barcelona manager's agent has no idea what decision his client will make.

Guardiola's current contract with Bayern Munich will expire at the end of this season, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City reportedly waiting in the wings to bring the Spaniard to the English Premier League next season.

Manchester United and Arsenal are also thought to be keen on the coveted manager, but Bayern Munich are ready to keep him in the Bundesliga by offering a massive £17million a year contract, according to the Daily Mirror.

Latest reports have suggested Guardiola is leaning towards signing a new deal with Bayern, but Chelsea and Manchester City are likely to make a concerted run at the Spaniard.

Roman Abramovich sees Guardiola as his number one choice, if the Russian decides to part ways with Jose Mourinho, who finds himself under tremendous pressure having already suffered seven defeats in just 12 matches with Chelsea in the Premier League this season.

While Manuel Pellegrini is doing a sterling job at the Etihad, City will certainly see Guardiola as an upgrade, and if the Spaniard is available, they will fancy their chances of enticing the former Barcelona great to Manchester.

Louis Van Gaal's current contract will end at the end in the summer of 2017, meaning Guardiola might consider signing a one-year extension with Bayern in order to keep his options open, while Arsene Wenger has another two years, apart from this season, to run on his contract with Arsenal.

The North London club, though, reportedly consider Guardiola as the perfect heir to Wenger's throne.

Much will depend on what Guardiola decides for his immediate future, but that remains guesswork at the moment, with his agent/advisor Josep Maria Orobitg insisting he is as much in the dark as anyone.

"Not even I know what Pep's intentions are," Orobitg said. "We've had some intensive talks in the past few days, but when it comes to things like this, he's very private.

"He will make up his mind entirely based on his own impressions. He is very happy [at Bayern] but at the end of the day, it is a decision he is going to take by himself.

"One thing is for sure, however, and that is everybody around him will accept his decision, no matter what it is."
