Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is ready to discuss a return to football.
The former Barcelona boss is ready to open talks about coming out of his self-imposed exile.
Guardiola walked away from the game at the end of last season, deciding he needed a 12-month break.
But sources in Spain have revealed that Guardiola, 41, has put into place a timetable for his return and instructed his advisers to open talks with interested clubs in January.
It is believed Guardiola wants to work in either England or Germany.
