Guardiola snubs mega-money Chelsea offer

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has turned down a second offer to manage Chelsea, this time rejecting a staggering £12million-a-year pay packet.


The Stamford Bridge club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, was desperate to recruit the 41-year-old after he confirmed he would be leaving the Catalan club at the end of the season, according to The Mirror.


Guardiola revealed he would be taking time away from football once the season is over and did not indicate whether this would be permanent or not.


Abramovich had been hoping to convince the former Barcelona trainee to reverse his decision with the huge salary offer and a sizeable transfer budget with it.


The report claims that Chelsea had contacted Guardiola after he sacked Andre Villas-Boas in March following a poor start to the season, but the Barca man was not interested in taking over at the west London club.


Guardiola’s rejection of Chelsea means Roberto di Matteo’s chances of getting the job have increased and if he can add the Champions League trophy to the FA Cup victory on Saturday, it will be difficult to look past him.
