Pep will not sign anyone from Barcelona, says Guardiola's father

Pep Guardiola’s father says his son will not look to take any Barcelona stars to Bayern Munich.

The former Blaugrana boss will take over from Jupp Heynckes in the Allianz Arena hotseat as of this summer, following an announcement earlier this week.

And since then, rumours have linked Guardiola with a number of his former players after he admitted he would look to replicate the style of football he implemented at Camp Nou with his new club.

“Barça is his home. He’s not going to pull it apart, how would his home end up then?”, Valentí Guardiola told Deportes Cuatro.

He then gave his thoughts on a possible language barrier stalling his son’s progress at Bayern and whether or not he will be able to enjoy the same success in Germany as he did in Spain.

“Only time will tell. He’ll put everything into his job and he will be able to defend himself in German,” he added.

Barca midfielder Thiago Alcantara was one such player linked with a move to join his former boss, but has since denied that speculation.
