"I've said 200 million times before, I have another year on my contract. I will be here next year.
Pep's side have dominated domestically, which could point to the poor form in Europe, having already wrapped up the league the Germans have seen a dip in form in the Champions League, causing circulating rumours about Guardiola's future. Rumours he is not at all happy about.
