Pep Guardiola on Tuesday announced he wishes to move to the Premier League when he leaves Bayern Munich at the end of the season. Here Press Association Sport looks at his potential destinations and why he might choose them.

  • Go To

:: MANCHESTER CITY

The Catalan worked with City's chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Beguiristain during his time at Barcelona. He may wish to reprise the relationship and take inconsistent City to the next level domestically and in Europe, with Manuel Pellegrini's position less than stable.

Odds: 2/9

:: CHELSEA

Jose Mourinho could be replaced permanently by his nemesis, if owner Roman Abramovich can persuade the 44-year-old he has the vision not to resort to the axe if things do not immediately go according to plan. London will likely appeal, but will Guardiola gamble with a club with a history of hiring and firing?

Odds: 9/2

:: MANCHESTER UNITED

Louis van Gaal's position is less than secure, with even sponsors Adidas criticising United's style of play. After David Moyes and the Dutchman, Guardiola could be the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson that United have been looking for. The chance to revive a giant could appeal.

Odds: 10/1

:: ARSENAL

Arsene Wenger is in his 20th year as Arsenal boss and the Gunners will have the challenge of finding his successor at some point. If London is where Guardiola wishes to be, Arsenal may offer a 'safer' alternative than Chelsea, with the stability and resources in place to thrive.

Odds: 14/1
