Chelsea could face a double blow with Brazilian star Neymar, a target for Manchester United and Barcelona, reportedly wanted by new Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola was confirmed as the next Bayern Munich manager on Wednesday, despite strong suggestions that he could join Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United in the summer.

And now, according to AS, the Premier League's elite could face a second disappointment with the former Barcelona boss now keen to bring Neymar to the Allianz Arena.

Barcelona has always appeared the most likely destination for Neymar, although Barca and Santos have both denied a deal is already in place to bring the 20-year-old to the Camp Nou.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have been linked with Neymar for a number of years, while Blues star Oscar has urged his compatriot to join the Brazilian contingent at Stamford Bridge.

Like Chelsea, Manchester United are reported to have been monitoring Neymar for some time, and Sir Alex Ferguson was linked with an transfer deadline swoop to bring the player to Old Trafford in August.
