PEP GUARDIOLA and Ed Woodward are 8/1 to be spotted together this year according to Ladbrokes.
But despite the pair's alleged meeting in Paris Manchester United still have work to do if they are to land the Bayern boss with odds of 5/1 offered that he snubs hot favourites City for their rivals.
The Sky Blues are just 1/4 to be Guardiola's next port of call with Arsenal and Chelsea both 8/1 shots.
Talk of managerial transfers at the Premier League's top clubs has also prompted the bookies to offer 7/1 that Arsenal, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs all have a new boss for the start of next season.
Ben Stones of Ladbrokes News said: "United may have denied a Paris rendezvous with Pep but the betting suggests they are still a long way behind their rivals when it comes to getting their man."
