Bayern Munich football team coach Pep Guardiola has claimed that he is not waiting for any offers from the English Premier League, insisting that he is happy at the Bundesliga club and dismissed rumours of a move to Manchester City.

Guardiola has been tipped as a possible candidate to replace City coach Manuel Pellegrini, but the Spaniard poured cold water on any speculation, saying that he has had no offers and is not waiting for any.

Guardiola said that he is very happy at Bayern, adding that this is an outstanding club. He said that he wants to fulfill his contract and do his job well, insisting that that is all he is thinking about at the moment, Sport24 reported.

The former Barcelona player and coach said that he still has a year and a half left on his contract, adding that they would sit together in the summer and then they would see how things go.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummeigge has said that he wants to extend with Guardiola as soon as possible, but the Spaniard is infamous for balking at long-term contracts with his current deal to expire in June 2016.

Guardiola won four titles last season in his first year in charge and is on course to steer Bayern to a third straight Bundesliga title in May.

Having won the Champions League title twice with previous club Barcelona , Guardiola is desperate to bring the title to Bavaria having lost in last season's semi-finals to eventual winners Real Madrid, the report added.
