PSG have not contacted Guardiola

Bayern München manager Pep Guardiola has not been in contact with Paris Saint-Germain about taking charge of the club, according to his agent. 

Guardiola confirmed that he would be leaving at the end of the ongoing Bundesliga season and his agent, Josep Maria Orobitg, hinted that the 44-year-old is leaning towards a move to the Premier League. 

Guardiola has already been linked to Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, but recent reports have indicated that the Ligue 1 champions are also interested in securing the Spaniard’s services. 

However, Orobitg made it clear that there has been no communication between both parties. 

"I have never been in touch with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi [to discuss Guardiola]. Not in the past and not recently," Orobitg told L'Equipe. "I have been in touch with sporting director Olivier Letang, but only to discuss one of my players. Pep's situation at Bayern has never been a subject and PSG have never asked me anything about his plans for the future.

"There might have been direct contact with Pep, but it would really surprise me if he had not told me about that."

Orobitg reiterated that a move to the Premier League is a highly likely possibility for Guardiola as of now, but added that the 44-year-old may also opt to take some time off. 

"A move to the Premier League is a possibility," he said. "Pep will take his decision within the next two or three months. Everything is possible, even a sabbatical year."
