English Premier League outfit Manchester City has denied the reports that new manager Pep Guardiola would not be able to sign players from the former club he managed, Bayern Munich.

Douglas Costa made the shocking claims but the club said no such thing exists.
Costa told Globo Esporte, a Brazilian television network, that his former coach would not be able to sign players from the Bundesliga club. He said:

"Would I be open to City if Pep called? It's something he has in his contract, a clause that says he cannot sign any players from Bayern.”


Robert Lewandowski is reported to be available for a move to an English Premier League outfit if the price is right.

The Poland international is said to be increasingly unsettled at current German club. He is said to favour a move to Manchester United, if they would meet his weekly wage demands.

The Bayern pointman will line up against familiar faces when Germany take on Poland in the second round of group games at the Euro 2016 tournament ongoing in France.


Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski is reported to be willing to force his move to Spanish giant, Real Madrid. The Poland international is one of the most sought after talent in the world with top clubs begging for his signature.

The former Dortmund star had a phenomenal last season and now has elite European clubs wanting to sign him. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid are at the fore of those desperate to secure his services.

Müller claims Bayern Munich need some fireworks

German striker Thomas Müller claims that Bayern Munich need to produce some fireworks if they are to get past Atletico Madrid in the semifinals of the Champions League.

After a 1-0 loss in the first leg, Bayern know that they must not only scored themselves but also prevent Atletico from getting a crucial away goal. Hence, Pep Guardiola is unlikely to set the team in a very offensive manner, as it puts them in danger of being ripped apart on the counter-attack. This has been the problem for Bayern in the last two seasons at this stage of the Champions League.

Guardiola Prepared for Emotional Goodbye

Pep Guardiola is prepared to manage the final few matches of Bayern Munich before he makes his exit and leaves for England in order to take charge of the Manchester city.

The professional coach and the manager of Bundesliga club of Bayern Munich conveyed a verdict on 23rd April that was quite emotional. He said that the experience had transformed him completely. The time is running out for Pep Guardiola as he would be starting a new life in just a few weeks in Manchester city. The team of Bayern Munich inched a game which was quite close to earning the Bundesliga title with a victory at Hertha Berlin. That’s when Pep Guardiola expressed his emotions.

Xabi Alonso wont find it easy to adapt at Managerial Position

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso claims that Manchester City players will not find it easy to immediately adapt to the managerial style of Pep Guardiola.

It was announced recently that the former Barcelona manager will be taking over at the Etihad stadium from the summer from Manuel Pellegrini. This has been seen as a major boost to City and the Premier League in a number of ways since Guardiola is one of the coveted managers in world football. This will be his first job in the English game after having previously expressed his fascination of the same.


The Bayern Munich supporters might not like Pep Guardiola’s frequent consultations with City bosses, but, for Munich players, it’s not something which is bothersome.

According to Thomas Muller, if Guardiola spends his leisure time in his apartment or he visits somebody for professional reasons, it doesn’t make too much of a difference to the team.

Bayern Munich will be without defender Jerome Boateng

Bayern Munich will be without defender Jerome Boateng for the upcoming match against Hoffenheim, but manager Pep Guardiola believes that the club can cope without the star.

Boetang has been a rocksolid player for Bayern since his move from Manchester City a few years ago. Guardiola admitted that the German defender has been a key part of the club, but he also gave glowing tributes about players who can replace him.Medhi Benatia, David Alaba, Javi Martinez, and Rafinha are some of the players in line to step in.

Chelsea will try and sign Pep Guardiola in the summer

Chelsea will try and sign Pep Guardiola in the summer according to Sky Sports pundit and Spanish football specialist Guillem Balague.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is thought to be a huge fan of the former Barcelona manager, who has finally announced that he will be leaving Bayern Munich after just three years at the club. Compared to his achievements with Barcelona, Guardiola has been disappointing with the German outfit. This has led to speculation that much of his achievements were largely because he was able to enjoy players like Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta in the team.
