Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has already announced that he will not be renewing his contract with the Bavarians beyond the 2015-16 term.

Hence, interests have generated regarding the acquisition of the Catalan across Europe - especially among the Premier League clubs.

Both Manchester outfits alongside Chelsea are in pursuit, but the Citizens are currently favourites to land Guardiola.

However, questions have arisen if he can emulate the same success he has achieved at Barcelona and Munich.

Bound for success

Former Barcelona forward Ronaldinho has no doubt Guardiola will bring success to whichever club he manages, now and in the future.

The Brazilian left Barca shortly after Guardiola became the head coach of the Spanish giants in 2008, but he could quickly recognise the boss' qualities as an exceptional manager, which eventually led to Barcelona winning several silverware under his regime.

Ronaldinho told Omnisport, as per the Daily Mail: “Pep is a great coach who could manage any team in the world. He is a good friend and he could coach any team in the world.”

The 44-year-old will possibly be the most sought after name until the summer with heavyweight clubs set to go head-to-head in order to land the Spanish tactician.

Premier League interest

It is considered likely that Manchester City will part ways with their Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season while the Red Devils are struggling under Louis van Gaal who is also poised to be relieved of his duties soon.

Premier League champions Chelsea have appointed Guus Hiddink as the interim boss at Stamford Bridge after sacking fan favourite Jose Mourinho but the Blues hierarchy could pull all the strings in order to lure Guardiola to west London.

Despite being unable to win a European title at Allianz Arena in two seasons, Guardiola has guided Bayern to back-to-back league triumphs and taking into consideration the form the Bavarians are currently showing, they are all set to win their third domestic title under their Spanish boss.

Managerial accolades

He experienced more success at the Nou Camp, where he won three La Liga titles, two domestic cups and a pair of Champions League trophies.

The Bayern Munich squad will be hoping to provide their coach with the perfect send off by winning the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s former and current clubs are among the favourites to win the European crown this season, but he will be optimistic of overcoming the Spanish champions this time around should they face off later in the competition.

Who will land Pep Guardiola in 2016-17? Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea. Leave a comment!
