Former Barcelona coach, Pep Guardiola is in line to visit the Emirates Stadium in December as he steps up plans to return to football,

The former Barcelona manager has been invited to deliver a presentation at a one-day event organised for international coaches and football specialists to share their knowledge.
He is set to be one of a series of high-profile speakers at the symposium, which is scheduled to take place at Arsenal’s stadium in mid-December, most likely on December 19.

Guardiola, who is living in New York with his family during a year’s sabbatical from the game, has indicated he is keen to be involved if it fits in with his plans to visit London as part of a Europe-wide fact-finding trip.

The Spaniard was photographed with Sir Alex Ferguson last week, as both attended the US Open tennis finals, as he maintains his links with the game.

However, United dismissed suggestions that the pair met to discuss the possibility of Guardiola succeeding Ferguson at Old Trafford.

The 41-year-old revealed in late April that he would be stepping down as manager of Barcelona to take a break from football following a glittering four-year spell at the helm in which he steered the club to 13 trophies, including two Champions League titles and three league crowns.
