The Mirror is reporting that Abramovich has now targeted the Catalan coach to stage a Chelsea revival next season, though he will face a fight to keep him from signing another contract at the Nou Camp.


Guardiola’s current deal runs out at the end of this season and has so far been undecided as to whether he will sign a new one.


Villas-Boas lasted just 27 league games at Chelsea and the fact that the Blues have won just five of their last 15 games may have had something to do with he decision taken.


The Portuguese’s assistant, former Chelsea midfielder Roberto di Matteo, will now take over the side on a temporary basis until the end of the current season.


The report also suggests Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is a possible alternative should they fail to lure Guardiola.
