Bayern Munich are making contingency plans for Pep Guardiola’s potential move to Manchester City, with the Bundesliga powerhouses to approach Carlo Ancelotti if the Spaniard leaves Bavaria at the end of the season, according to The Mirror.
The former Barcelona boss is out of contract at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and has yet to confirm whether he will extend his stay at the Allianz Arena into the future.
With Bayern believing that Guardiola is on the brink of a move to the Etihad Stadium, the German champions have been eyeing up potential replacements.
Ancelotti heads the list of options, with the Italian out of work after being sacked by Real Madrid at the end of last season.
The former Chelsea boss helped the Spanish capital city club to their tenth European Cup final, but with Barcelona dominant both domestically and on the continent last term Ancelotti was given his marching orders.
