Guardiola is claimed to have held talks with high-
ranking United officials in Paris last week.
According to respected French sports newspaper
L'Equipe , the meeting took place at the Bristol Hotel,
Rue du Fabourg, Saint Honoure.
United appear to be trying to hijack rival City's move
for Guardiola, who had been expected to replace
Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City when he leaves
Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
