Chelsea waiting as Guardiola set to confirm Barca exit

27 April 2012 09:20
Roman Abramovich is desperate to lure Pep Guardiola to Stamford Bridge, after he announces he wants to take a break from the game.

Guardiola will today leave his job at Barcelona and wants to have a break from the game before finding a new job.

Roberto Di Matteo may have masterminded Chelsea's win over Barcelona during the week, but he is still not seen as the long-term answer.

Guardiola has seen his grip on world domination slip through his hands this week, losing the El Classico to Real Madrid, all but ended Barca's title hopes and this was followed by a Champions League exit.

According to The Mirror, his imminent departure from the Nou Camp has alerted Chelsea, with the West London club willing to fork out the money in order to tempt him to abandon his plans to leave the game.
