Two reasons Guardiola is set to leave Man City for Bayern Munich

Hans-Dieter Flick was in charge for the 2-0 and 4-0 wins over Olympiacos and Borussia Dortmund and may stay on for the time being.

Bayern Munich stars Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka have joked about Pep Guardiola making a return to Bundesliga to manage the club.

According toSport Bild, all three of Bayern's leading candidates to succeed sacked coach Niko Kovac as the next permanent boss in Bavaria are now under contract: Guardiola, Ajax's Erik ten Hag and Thomas Tuchel of PSG.

The Germany global winger might have moved to the Allianz Arena in the summer had he not picked up a serious injury in the Community Shield and, though Bayern subsequently moved to sign Philippe Coutinho, there remains a prospect that they could yet add the 23-year-old to their ranks. You will see what happens. In the last six days, Hansi Flick has invested everything with his coaching team. We have been very successful twice.

"And those responsible will take a stand on the subject if they want him".

Guardiola has been linked with a move away from City, and he's nearly certain to move on if he can help the club win a Champions League this season.

Bayern Munich recently sacked Niko Jovac as manager, and they have been looking for a good replacement since then.

Neuer was speaking ahead of Germany's Euro 2020 qualifying double-header against Belarus and Northern Ireland, where they will hope to secure their place in next year's finals. "That's our clear goal".
