Guardiola skirts talk on future

Bayern München head coach Pep Guardiola evaded the latest speculation on his future amid reports he is a target to replace Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

Guardiola's future has been the subject of much conjecture this season as the Spaniard is in the final year of his contract at the Allianz Arena, although Bayern are confident he will reach an agreement to stay on.

The Barcelona icon has previously been linked with taking over the reins from Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, but reports in England this week suggest Blues owner Roman Abramovich wants him at the helm at Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola, though, was in no mood to entertain questions regarding his future at a press conference on Tuesday ahead of his side's DFB Pokal second-round clash with VfL Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena.

"Please, it's October," he pleaded. "I have to continue winning games because that's what the fans want. I don't talk about it [the contract] every week."

Guardiola did, however, indicate he could still be in Munich next term as he is determined to repeat the club's treble-winning 2012/13 campaign under Jupp Heynckes.

"I'd be sorry should we miss out on the Treble. Then FC Bayern will try again next year," he declared, having won the domestic double with the Bavarians in 2014 while defending their Bundesliga title last season.
