With one of the best managers available and with one of the biggest club having a vacant managerial position it wouldn’t take a genius to know that Chelsea would try to get Pep Guardiola to Stamford Bridge in the summer. And rightly so as reports suggest, the Blues are using all their might to land the Spaniard.
After 2 successful season with the Bavarians, Pep Guardiola has announced that he set to leave the German capital and is planning to take up a job in England. And this has set the ball rolling with Manchester City and Chelsea fighting for the Spaniard. Though in all probability we are likely to see Guardiola at the Etihad stadium but Chelsea are not backing down in front of the Arab might.
Manchester City has potentially always aimed to get the ex-Barcelona boss to England and this mindset led them to appoint the allies of the 44 year old manager, Txiki Begiristain and Ferran Soriano who Guardiola has close associations with.
But the London club is not letting go even in the face of a loss given that Guardiola has said that he yet to sign a contract with any Premier League club, highlighting that the Spaniard has in fact received several offers from England. And in a bid to outdo the Citizens, the Blues have made the Munich boss two big promises.
In order to lure the Spaniard to the capital, the Stamford Bridge outfit has arguably promised Guardiola a contract that beats the one that City can provide and also the funds that he might need for building the team according to his own wishes. Also what might work in favour of the Blues is their location which apparently is Guardiola’s wife’s choice and can ultimately influence the man!
But these are just speculations and it will be in a few days when the man who has won 19 trophies with Barcelona and Bayern Munich breaks the big news to the world!
