Reports in Barcelona today claimed Barca boss Guardiola had already held a meeting with club president Sandro Rosell, at which he outlined his future plans indicating that he wanted a break from the game.
Pep is set to tell the players when they reconvene for training ahead of Sunday’s trip to Rayo Vallecano.
