Guardiola's contract is up for renewal next summer and he has been linked with a move to Manchester City from next season.

Bayern's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge suggested at the weekend that a decision - one way or another - would be made before the Bundesliga's winter break.

But Guardiola's agent Josep Maria Orobitg has told Munich's Tz newspaper that he does not know what that decision is going to be.

"Not even I know what Pep's intentions are," Orobitg said.

"We've had some intensive talks in the past few days, but when it comes to things like this, he's very private.

"He will make up his mind entirely based on his own impressions."

Guardiola has led Bayern to back-to-back Bundesliga titles, while they are five points clear at the top with a third of the current campaign gone.

Orobitg said Guardiola is "very happy" in Munich but added: "At the end of the day, it is a decision he is going to take by himself.

"One thing is for sure, however, and that is everybody around him will accept his decision, no matter what it is."
