Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola will take over as Bayern Munich head coach for the 2013/14 season, the Bundesliga giants confirmed on Wednesday, with the Spaniard offered a contract until 2016.

The 41-year-old Guardiola, who has twice coached Barcelona to the Champions League title, will replace current Munich boss Jupp Heynckes, whose contract expires in June, just after his 68th birthday.

Guardiola, who is currently living in New York with his family, resigned as Barcelona coach last year after four years coaching the Spanish giants.
