Pep Guardiola has dismissed as "fantasy" the idea he is considering quitting Barcelona for Chelsea.

Guardiola, 41, is said to be owner Roman Abramovich's top target to succeed Andre Villas-Boas, with reports suggesting he could be offered a £10million-a-year contract. But he gave short shrift to questions about swapping the Nou Camp for Stamford Bridge, claiming Chelsea have a "very, very good manager" in caretaker Roberto Di Matteo.

Guardiola, who has still to sign a new contract at Barca to replace the one that expires this summer, said: "It is fantasy, it's hypothetical. I am coach of Barcelona now and they have a good manager who is getting unbelievable results."
