At the end of this season, Guardiola, who was earlier the coach of Barcelona, would end his 3 year deal with the German champions. In the English Premier League, he would take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the Ethiad stadium.

The news has led to a number of reports that the ex Barcelona clash will be looking to bring some of his Bayern players with him. But Spanish player Alcantara - who also played under Pep at Barcelona - has confirmed his consignment to the Bundesliga team for the next season.

It wasn't long ago that Alcantara was being linked by the casinos website with a move to PSG, but Alcantara distanced himself from that move too.

Speaking to a leading German newspaper, he stated that there are always a lot of rumours. Guardiola is joining EPL side Manchester City and they have to respect that. But there is no truth in the rumours saying that he would follow him.

He said that he would have definitely sign a brand new contract if he wanted to leave the club. And, he expended his contract for a reason. Back in August, the 24 year old player signed a new 4-year contract with the club. But he has been restricted to just 9 starts in the league this season because of injury.

Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski has also talked about a deal extension with the German champs. He know that clubs outside Germany are interested to get him on-board, but he wants to stay with Bayern.
