Agent dismisses talk of Barcelona boss moving to Premiership

Pep Guardiola's agent Jose Maria Orobitg is cool on reports linking the Barcelona boss with a move away from the Nou Camp. The highly-rated Barca chief - who is out of contract in June - is being linked with Inter Milan, Chelsea and Manchester United.

He told calciomercato.it: "At this moment there is nothing with another club.

"I have not had any direct contact with Inter, only questions by other agents, but we are not currently contemplating a departure.

"Guardiola's contract is expiring in June, it is too early to begin negotiations for the renewal, but Pep has always preferred to renew from year to year.

"Then in football you never know. Chelsea and Manchester United? No, I have not had any contact with them.

"I think that next season Pep will still be on Barcelona's bench. He's very well here, is very Catalan and is a special coach".
