Pep Guardiola is immersed in negotiations with Bayern Munich to reach an agreement to renew the contract. In recent months, there has been speculation about a possible departure to the Premier League. But he will probably stay in Germany. His agent, Josep Maria Orobitg, traveled to Munich to define all the details.

In this context, interviewed by Sport Bild, Guardiola recalls a similar situation at FC Barcelona. He reveals that Carles Puyol insisted so he did not go away. "He asked me to stay, every day," confesses Guardiola. In Germany, players like Philip Lahm have publicly asked the same.
