Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is considering a move for Barcelona contract rebel Martin Montoya, according to reports in Germany.

German tabloid Bild claims the former Barcelona manager has highlighted Montoya as a potential signing at right-back as he looks to permanently convert Philipp Lahm into a central midfielder.

Barcelona have tried hard to renew Montoya's contract but with the 22-year-old fed up with his bit-part role, talks have broken down.

Montoya is currently in the last four months of his contract in the Nou Camp with no extension forthcoming. He is free to negotiate pre-contracts with other clubs ahead of what looks like an inevitable departure.

Liverpool have long been linked with a move for the player as the form and fitness of Glen Johnson continues to concern manager Brendan Rodgers.

Their likely return to the Champions League will free up funds for both transfers and wages and Liverpool flew Ian Ayre out to Spain before Christmas to hold talks with the player's representatives.

But the Anfield outfit will struggle to compete with Bayern Munich's pulling power, who have almost-guaranteed silverware on offer as well as the funds to offer bigger wages.

The chance for Montoya to play under the legendary Guardiola will no doubt play a big part in the player's decision.
