Were he to join any of the three Premier League giants, Guardiola would be undoubtedly be armed with a huge transfer budget given the trio are amongst the top ten richest clubs in the world.
And following the sacking of former boss Jose Mourinho, Abramovich seems determined to pip his rivals to football's most highly sought-after manager and is prepared to give in to every demand.
The problem remains that City are outright favourites to land Guardiola next summer, with reports as per Kicker suggesting the Spaniard has pledged to join the Citizens.
It's likely the club's United Arab Emirates owners would be willing to offer the Bayern manager anything he wants too.
United, meanwhile, are also keen to secure the Catalan's services should they part ways with under-fire manager Louis van Gaal.
The club's executives are reportedly willing to arm whoever is in charge next summer with a £250 million transfer kitty, with the Red Devils' in dire need of rebuilding - a challenge Guardiola could be tempted by.
