Chelsea join hunt for world-renowned manager

Bayern Munich Chelsea fans by the Transfer Tavern jukebox have expressed delight after seeing their club linked with the most highly-rated manager in world football.

The Blues supporters are unimpressed by the performances of Jose Mourinho’s side this season and are fed-up with the Portuguese man’s comments off the field. Therefore, claims from Bild that stated Roman Abramovich is keen on Pep Guardiola went down very well.

Per the report, Chelsea would be prepared to offer the two-time Champions League winner an extremely lucrative financial package as they seek to land the Catalan boss ahead of Premier League rivals Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Mourinho recently received a vote of confidence from the Chelsea board but is likely to leave next summer if the Blues fail to land a place in the top-four of the Premier League, which may prove difficult as they currently sit in the bottom-half of the table with 11 points.

Our punters believe Guardiola replacing Mourinho would be the highest-insult to last season’s title winner, as the pair at a frosty relationship whilst in charge of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

Chelsea fans, would Pep Guardiola be the ideal Mourinho replacement? Let us know in the comments below!
