Vilanova insists he is unfazed by the rumours, but did say it is a huge boost for the German league that Guardiola will coach there.
“I'm not worried that some players want to go to Guardiola's Bayern. I'm not worried, they have contracts," Vilanova told reporters.
“It's great news for the Bundesliga. They are one of the great teams that Pep could have gone to. He will help German football a lot. The best coach in the world has to be coaching, and next season he will.
“Pep has a method of coaching, like all the coaches that have come through at Barca. He doesn't necessarily have to give that up."
