Bayern Munich have confirmed that Pep Guardiola will take over the Bundesliga side from the end of the current season.
The former Barcelona coach has signed a deal that runs until 2016.
The announcement brings an end to speculation about where the Spaniard would ply his trade.
Having brought his four year spell at Barcelona to an end last summer, during which time he won 14 trophies, the 41-year-old took a sabbatical from the game.
He announced recently that he was ready to return to the game, and was most strongly linked with a move to Chelsea, where owner Roman Abramovich has coveted his services.
