The Premier League trio of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested in Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.
As reported by The Sun, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich looks set to make his move for the revered coach when Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho is finally given the axe.
With Chelsea currently sitting in 15th place in the Premier League, Mourinho has endured a torrid start to the season in west London, so it's far from certain as to whether he will remain in charge of the club for the foreseeable future.

Guardiola, though, has a number of options, with the same report from The Sun claiming that Bayern are desperately trying to persuade him to sign a new deal with the club.
The 44-year-old's contract is set to end at the close of the season, but it appears that he could yet stay on in Germany's elite division. However, with Chelsea and the Manchester duo seemingly interested in bringing him to England, there could yet be a number of twists in the saga.
Class of Guardiola
Let's be honest, it's not entirely surprising that the big-boys in England are all looking at the brilliant Guardiola. With uncertainty surrounding his long-term future, it's understandable that Chelsea and Co. are ready to try their luck.
The classy coach is one of the best around and has a remarkable track record. His style has to be admired while he has achieved astonishing success at two of the biggest clubs in Europe. Perhaps, then, his next stop could be England.
