Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been a long time admirer of the highly rated Spanish tactician. Although Guardiola may not be available for Chelsea job in January, he could however make a switch to Chelsea when his contract expires at the end of the season.

“Tonight, I have no answer.
“Next week, you will know the answer”
Should Guardiola be ready to take a new job when his contract expires with Bayern in the summer, Chelsea would have to battle the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, PSG and Arsenal for the services of the Spaniard.
However, report has it that former Totteham coach Juande Ramos could be a temporary replacement for Jose Mourinho, pending when a permanent manager would be employed.
Guardiola helped Barcelona to achieve two European titles during his time at Camp Nou, and he is poised to win the third title with Bayern Munich this season.
