Pep Guardiola has confirmed ahead of Bayern Munich's Champions League quarter-final second-leg tie against FC Porto that he will remain in charge of the German giants in 2016.

Bayern welcomes Julen Lopetegui's side to the Allianz Arena on 21 April looking to appease disgruntled supporters by overturning a surprise 3-1 deficit suffered in Portugal.

That result on 15 April, which some have unfairly blamed on medical staff with Bayern missing a host of star names including Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, appeared to heap pressure on Guardiola, with the club having also suffering embarrassment in the 2014 competition with a heavy aggregate defeat to Real Madrid.

Despite those struggles in Europe, though, Bayern have continued their unrelenting domestic dominance under Guardiola's stewardship and currently stand on the verge of securing their third consecutive title courtesy of a 12-point lead over nearest challengers Wolfsburg.

"My future is: Wednesday free, Thursday training, and, of course, next year to be here," the Barcelona icon said in a pre-match press conference. "That's my future."

Guardiola's insistence that he will honour his Bayern contract will no doubt disappoint a host of European football's most reputable clubs who may be preparing to make a managerial change this summer.

Manchester City in particular are reported to have Guardiola at the very top of their list as serious doubts continue to circulate regarding current boss Manuel Pellegrini, while Paris Saint-Germain might have been another potential suitor with Laurent Blanc facing an equally uncertain future.

Liverpool could choose to dispense of Brendan Rodgers in light of another season without silverware and a likely failure to retain a spot in the top four, while Luis Enrique and Carlo Ancelotti could leave Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.

The absence of Guardiola leaves Bundesliga rival Jurgen Klopp as the most desirable managerial property on the market this summer.

The enigmatic German held a press conference earlier in April to confirm his departure from Borussia Dortmund following a difficult campaign at Signal Iduna Park and he is expected to court significant attention from across the continent.
