Manchester United have 'no chance' of getting Guardiola

Manchester United have “no chance” of recruiting Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola after the sacking of David Moyes, while the former Barcelona coach has also himself reinforced his desire to remain at the Allianz Arena.

Moyes was relieved of his duties on Tuesday morning, a year to the day since Manchester United had won the Premier League title by 11 points, with Ryan Giggs tasked with taking temporary charge of a fractured team. Guardiola is reported to have been identified as an ideal long-term successor, but the prospects of recruiting the Catalan appear beyond remote.

Guardiola said in a press conference ahead of Bayern’s Champions League semi-final encounter with Real Madrid that he intends to honour his three-year contract with the Bundesliga champions, while the club’s press office have moved to extinguish the Manchester United link.

"Tell the people in England, no chance,” a press contact told The Telegraph.

Given the dismissal from both Guardiola and Bayern, the decorated manager is not listed anywhere among the favourites to assume the position vacated by Moyes. Bookies have placed Louis van Gaal, who will be available after the World Cup, as the overwhelming favourite to become the next Manchester United boss.

Jurgen Klopp is listed as the next most likely appointment, although he is as far back as 12/1 given that he too has claimed that he has no intention of leaving Borussia Dortmund for another job.
