Pep Guardiola takes over at Bayern Munich in July and it seems that he is already making decisions in the transfer market, with players coming in and also players going out.

The recently-crowned German champions have already signed Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mario Gotze and it now appears that Guardiola is prepared to sell Dutch winger Arjen Robben and German striker Mario Gomez, according to the Daily Mail.

Robben, the 29-year-old winger, joined Bayern Munich from Real Madrid after  an unsuccessful spell at the Bernebeu, but it now appears that he does not feature in Guardiola's plans as he looks to assemble his own team.

The news that Robben is on the transfer list could alert many clubs around the world, especially in England, where he was once so impressive for Chelsea.

It's believed that Guardiola is of the opinion that Robben is a limited attacker, which is the main reason why he is unlikely to feature at the Allianz Arena next season.

Meanwhile, Gomez is also poised to leave the club, with Chelsea a possible destination for the 27-year-old.

Manchester City are also reportedly keen to sign the Germany international, who has scored 74 league goals in 111 appearances for the Bavarians.

Bayern Munich thrashed Guardiola's old club, Barcelona, 4-0 earlier this week in the Champions League semi-finals, and remain on course to complete an historic treble.

Under current manager Jupp Heynckes, who will retire at the end of the season, Bayern were recently crowned Bundesliga champions for the first time since 2010.
