Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola says he will give "clarity" on his future at the Bundesliga champions next week.

The 44-year-old Spaniard, who has been linked with Manchester City,external-link has led Bayern to two titles since taking over in 2013 but is out of contract in June.

He would not answer questions about his future on Tuesday, but indicated an announcement would soon follow.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Wednesday that Guardiola has already told Bayern he will leave the club.

The Madrid-based publication claims he believes both he and the club would benefit from a change of scenery because his intense work ethic can wear players down.

Reports in Spain last month claimed the former Barcelona coach had agreed to leave Bayern at the end of the season to take over at Manchester City.

The Bavarian giants hold a five-point lead in the German league as they prepare for their final game of 2015 - at Hannover on Saturday.
