Pep Guardiola has said he does not know what the future holds when asked whether he would consider managing the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal or Manchester City one day.

Ahead of City's visit to the Allianz Arena to face Guardiola's Bayern Munich this evening, Guardiola fielded questions on his ambitions to manage in the Premier League at some point in the future.

City, United or Arsenal

"I always get the same question, City, Manchester United and Arsenal - I don't know," said Guardiola.

"I'm really happy here."

The former-Barcelona manager is linked with pretty any top job that comes available. Before Chelsea and Manchester City hired Manuel Pellegrini and Jose Mourinho a few summers ago, Guardiola was linked with both posts.

And after Sir Alex Ferguson retired from Manchester United, the Old Trafford club were also linked with Guardiola, who took a year-long sabbatical to New York after leaving Barcelona.

And the Spaniard has admitted that he never considered managing in Germany before the opportunity to take over at Bayern came up - perhaps a subtle hint to Premier League admirers?


"When I was at Barcelona I never thought I'd become manager of Bayern Munich," continued Guardiola.

Rubbing salt in raw United wounds, the ex-Spain international said the Old Trafford side would not be able to afford to sign his Bayern Munich stars after United were linked with moves for Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Muller over the summer.

Guardiola and Bayern are looking to make up for last season's disappointment in the Champions League. Then reigning champions, Bayern were humiliated by eventual winners Real Madrid at the semi-final stage.
