Berlin - Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says club boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge "knows everything" about his future plans with an announcement on whether he is leaving at the end of the season expected ON Sunday.

Speculation is rife that the Spaniard will move on to another club when his contract expires, with Manchester City among a number of Premier League sides queuing up for his services.

"The club, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, and myself have repeated numerous times that we will speak after the last match (of the year) at Hanover. That hasn't changed. You'll know the day after tomorrow (Sunday)," Guardiola told a press conference on the eve of his club's closing Bundesliga outing of 2015.

"Rummenigge knows everything" about his decision, the Catalan added.

Rummenigge said in November to expect "a Christmas surprise, one way or the other, before Christmas," adding that "no one is irreplaceable".

Media reports this week suggest Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti was being lined up to replace Guardiola who since his arrival in 2013 has guided Bayern to two league titles and a German Cup.

As Bayern fans wait on Guardiola's next move the club announced that four players - striker Thomas Mueller, defender Jerome Boateng and midfield holder Xabi Alonso - had extended their contracts.
