Arsenal & Chelsea want one of world's top 3 strikers in Mario Mandzukic. Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly chasing one of the top three centre-forwards in the world and will only be able to land him because Pep Guardiola knows nothing about strikers. This is according to former Croatia manager Igor Stimac, who said that he believes Mario Mandzukic has very few rivals in the striker position. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly flown out to Brazil not only as a television pundit, but to secure a deal for one of three centre forwards and the Bayern Munich forward is top of the list. Meanwhile, Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in 28 year old former Wolfsburg striker. Whether it be Emirates Stadium or Stamford Bridge, Stimac believes whichever team gets him will be landing a supreme forward who can make contributions up front and at the back: "Mandzukic is definitely in the top three strikers in the world at the moment. Defensively and offensively he is an amazing player. “It’s n ...
Chelsea could be close to a deal to sign Mario Mandzukic after he was reportedly left out of Bayern Munich's Cup final squad. Bayern head coach Pep Guardiola is understood to have dropped the Croatian striker in the wake of rumours that he could be heading to Stamford Bridge this summer. German newspaper Bild reported yesterday that Mandzukic could be a Chelsea player within days and today SportBild claim that Guardiola said to Mandzukic: "I wish you every success with your new club." The ex-Barcelona boss - who has never seen eye to eye with Blues boss Jose Mourinho - left the player out of his squad to face Borussia Dortmund in Berlin on Saturday. Guardiola has told the press that there's nothing more to it than a tactical decision to use another player but SportBild say they have an inside line at the club. Chelsea are believed to have been in talks with Bayern this week about a possible deal for David Luiz and the Croatian striker's name could well have come up as a makeweight in the proposal or just ...
Bayern Munich planning a massive £25 million swoop on Chelsea May 15, 2014 Pep Guardiola is reportedly attempting a coup against his former employers FC Barcelona. According to reports in the Daily Mail, Bayern Munich have made enquiries with Chelsea over their Brazilian centre back David Luiz. The wild haired defender was all set to leave Stamford Bridge to start a sojourn with the Catalan giants, but Guardiola who is learnt to be a long term admirer of Luiz, could weigh in at the last moment with an offer too good to resist. The one advantage that Barcelona have over the Bavarians however is their ability to offer Luiz a chance to team up with compatriots Dani Alves and Neymar. Luiz is believed to be valued by Chelsea at around £35 million, but Luiz Felipe Scolari has forbidden his players from indulging in any transfer babble, so as to get their undivided attention for his World Cup preparation. David Luiz has won 3 trophies in his 3 years at Chelsea and is a crowd favourite. He has been used spa ...
Bayern Munich are poised to launch a £25million bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz. The 27-year-old is ready to leave Stamford Bridge this summer. Barcelona are understood to be his preferred club but no deal has yet been agreed, with some technical staff at the Nou Camp unsure whether Luiz should be their priority for central defence. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, however, is keen on the Brazilian. Talks may have to wait until after the World Cup, as Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari does not want his players distracted by transfer negotiations. Barcelona enquired about Luiz last summer and were quoted £35m.
Transfer News &Stories Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is planning to test former club Real Madrid's determination to hold on to Germany anchorman Sami Khedira. The Spanish club value the 27-year-old at £36m. Arsenal and Manchester City are monitoring Javi Martinez, 25, amid reports that Bayern Munich's Spanish midfielder is disillusioned with life under manager Pep Guardiola. Liverpool have emerged as favourites to sign Benfica playmaker Nicolas Gaitan ahead of Manchester City and Manchester United. A bid of £20m would be enough to prise the 26-year-old Argentina international from the Portuguese champions. Liverpool want to add Barcelona winger Cristian Tello to their squad for next season and have approached the Catalan club with an £8m offer for the 22-year-old. Inter Milan are interested in Chelsea anchorman Jon Obi Mikel, 27, after the Nigeria international's fall from favour at Stamford Bridge. Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender, 25, has quashed speculation linking him with Arsenal, saying he is ...
Can Mourinho ever deliver the Chelsea that Abramovich wants? As Roman Abramovich watched on from his luxury private box in the west stand, he was presented with the kind of vibrant attacking football he has always craved at Stamford Bridge. Unfortunately, it was the team in red and white stripes playing with the speed, authority and skill that would have reminded the Russian billionaire why he once dreamed of appointing Pep Guardiola as the Chelsea manager The intensity of their play was startling, the cohesion of their attacking movement too much for the Blues to handle. They played with a passion that mirrored that of their coach, Diego Simeone, on the touchline. Mourinho could find no answer, not this time. Not so special anymore? This was Mourinho’s fourth Champions League semi-final defeat in a row, his sixth overall in 10 attempts to reach the final of Europe’s most prestigious competition. Mourinho has said this season that he accepts the owner’s wishes and understands the style of football A ...
Jose Mourinho better watch out... Atletico Madrid really know how to park the bus They have already done it to Real Madrid, Barcelona and AC Milan this season so it’s little wonder Atletico Madrid fans believe their team can pick up a 1-0 win on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge. If anyone can out-Chelsea Chelsea, then it’s the team with the meanest defence in both La Liga and the Champions LeagueDiego Simeone’s side have won 1-0 nine times this season, managing it at the San Siro and the Santiago Bernabeu. ‘We want to be annoying,’ says the Argentine coach. ‘We want to be a team that no-one can stand playing against.’ Sound familiar? No wonder when Simeone was asked to pick between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, when both coaches were plying their trade in La Liga alongside him, he plumped for Mourinho. Liverpool had that sinking feeling on Sunday when Demba Ba put Chelsea one up — there were still 45 minutes left but they knew the job in hand was bordering on impossible. In two o ...
"Manchester United have been handed arguably the toughest draw of all against Bayern. "Pep Guardiola's side have already demonstrated their class against Manchester City and Arsenal this season and United's status as outsiders for the tournament will only be cemented after the draw against the Bundesliga superpower on a mission to become the first club to retain the Champions League. "United manager David Moyes suggested his side might now be in with a chance of making further progress into the Champions League after overcoming Olympiakos. The unmoved odds of 20-1 on United winning the tournament paint a more realistic picture. "Chelsea's task is slightly easier against the big-spending PSG, inspired by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Jose Mourinho will approach this tie with guarded optimism, especially with the second leg at Stamford Bridge. "Ibrahimovic has never enjoyed the greatest of fortunes against English clubs in Europe and while Mourinho, predictably, is keen to paint Chelsea as outsiders, he will believe ...
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is the best-paid coach in world football, according to a new list released on Tuesday. French weekly sports publication France Football have published their annual rich list, which shows Mourinho is now out-earning his coaching nemesis, Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola – who has the second-largest coaching salary in the world game. The Blues boss – who earns a cool €17m a year – had suggested he took a pay cut to return to Stamford Bridge last summer, but that assertion has been dashed by the latest index. Arsene Wenger is the next best-paid Premier League boss, receiving little over half that of Mourinho, while former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is enjoying a bumper pay day at Galatasaray, having left the Etihad last summer. Mancini squeezes into the top three, edging ahead of Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti on €14m a year. Despite receiving a €1.5m pay rise after quitting Paris Saint-Germain for the Bernabeu, Ancelotti - who was on the podium in l . ...

Stamford Bridge side want Etihad Stadium ace. Chelsea are reportedly ready to challenge Bayern Munich in the pursuit of Man City striker Sergio Aguero according to TuttoMercato. The West London side are being linked with a stunning 50m (£42m) bid for the in-form Argentine as Jose Mourinho looks to address his stuttering Stamford Bridge strike-force. Mourinho's current quartet of strikers, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Andre Schurrle have scored just three Premier League goals between them this year, indeed loaned out Belgian Romelu Lukaku has outscored them by managing five in five appearances for Everton. Pep Guardiola is apparently keen on bringing 25 year old Aguero to the Allianz Arena but Mourinho may have other ideas though one wonders if Man City would consider any offers for such a pivotal player, especially one who has only recently been tied down to a long term contract. The former Atletico Madrid man has been a massive success since making his £38m move to the Etihad Stadium bac ...
We continue from lask week G is for Guardiola: Mourinho was assistant coachat Barcelona when Pep Guardiola was club captain and the pair were close, but there was no love lost between them as they went head to head for two seasonsin Spain. The Portuguese mocked the Catalan following the Copa del Rey final in 2011after Guardiola had lamented a close offside call which saw a Pedro strike ruled out."There is now a new group ofwhich only he is a member, which criticises referees' correct decisions." Guardiola responded with a rant of his own before Barca and Madrid met in the Champions League and after the Catalans came out on top, Mourinho attackedhis former friend once again."He knows how he has won the Champions League twice," he said, bemoaning what he called 'The Scandal of Stamford Bridge' - when Pep's2009 side survived to beat the Blues as several decisions went in their favour.

Mourinho a ´disaster ´ for Chelsea, warns Barca chief Read full story:30 May 2013 11:56 Barcelona vice-president Carles Vilarrubi has warned a returning Jose Mourinho would be "a disaster" for Chelsea. Mourinho's departure from Real Madrid was confirmed last week by Real president Florentino Perez and the Portuguese is widely expected to return to Chelsea, where he previously won two Premier League titles. However, Vilarrubi has said Mourinho will not replicate the success he enjoyed at Stamford Bridge when he was last there. "It is not good for English football," Vilarrubi told The Daily Telegraph. "Chelsea maybe think they had a good time from him in the past, but you will see the real Mourinho now. "If he behaves like he did in Spain it will only be an unhappy relationship. A disaster. And at his age he is not going to change." Mourinho clashed a number of times with Real's rivals Barcelona, particularly former Barca boss Pep Guardiola, but Vilarrubi feels it is more than simply a feud between the tw ...
There will be plenty of players on show tomorrow evening, who have been linked with Premier League switches and could find themselves playing English football next year. Arjen Robben The Dutch winger has been touted as a possible target for Manchester City . He’s shrugged that off but a poor performance in the final could encourage City to make a bid, especially as Pep Guardiola could make some big personnel changes at the club this summer. Mario Gomez The experienced German centre forward has been on Chelsea ’s radar according to the press, but he’s unlikely to start in the final. If he doesn’t feature at all, that will hurt him and could cause him to take up any offer to play for Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge. Dante Brazilian central defender Dante has been suggested as a possible transfer target for Arsenal . The Gunners could axe Thomas Varmaelen this summer, which creates a big hole in the middle of their side and Arsene Wenger could aggressively pursue a player of Dante’s quality. Rober ...
Chelsea could turn to Bayern Munich star Mario Gomez this summer as the search for a new striker to spearhead the Stamford Bridge attack continues, according to the Daily Mail. Mourinho, who looks set to take the reins at Chelsea following the announcement that he will be leaving Real Madrid, is keen to add another striker to the squad. Moves for Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao and Napoli's Edinson Cavani have been mentioned, but both forwards are in-demand. Chelsea face competition from Manchester City and Monaco for Falcao, while City are thought to have opened talks with Napoli over Cavani. Gomez, who's found his playing time limited at the Allianz Arena this season, could be available at the end of the season. The Germany international may be surplus to requirements once former-Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola takes over at Bayern, having already seen Mario Mandzukic usurp his place in the starting XI this term. The Bavarian giants have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski - ...
Roman Abramovich is in search of the 11th manager for Chelsea since he took over at the club in 2003. Rafa Benitez, Chelsea’s interim manager for this season, is unlikely to get an extension. It was no secret that Abramovich wanted Pep Guardiola to take over at Stamford Bridge next season, but the Former Barcelona manager’s decision to join German giants Bayern Munich has left them in an inconvenient position. So the biggest question now remains – who will take up the hot seat at Stamford Bridge next season. While some romantics are vouching for a return of Jose Mourinho, more realistic options like Manuel Pellegrini and Antonio Conte have been linked with the job. Juventus manager Conte is believed to be a prime contender in Chelsea’s shortlist for managers next season. In fact Gianluca Vialli, a former player and manager of Chelsea, believes that Conte is ‘probably at the top of Chelsea’s wanted list‘. Source: The hard tackle
Trading places: Atletico Madrid open door to Radamel Falcao for Fernando Torres swap with Chelsea Spanish side express interest in re-signing £50million Stamford Bridge flop whose form for them earned him a move to Liverpool Chelsea's bid to sign Atletico Madrid hot-shot Radamel Falcao has been given a huge boost. The Spanish club have expressed an interest in re-signing Fernando Torres at the end of the season. And that means Chelsea can now pursue a deal that would see Torres ­return to Atletico and Falcao move to Stamford Bridge. But Chelsea’s valuation of Torres and his £175,000-a-week wages will provide the biggest stumbling block. But Chelsea will be ­desperate to offload Torres and sign Falcao, who has a ­£46million release clause in his Atletico contract. New Bayern ­Munich boss Pep Guardiola could provide ­competition for Falcao's signature. A Spanish source said: “Despite all his problems at Chelsea, Torres is still held in great affection at Atletico and he would be welcomed back. ...
The Daily Mirror reports that two potential targets to take over the Stamford Bridge hot seat have been approached by the club: Malaga and former Real Madrid boss Manuel Pellegrini and Juventus manager Antonio Conte. That means that Mourinho is set to again be ignored by Roman Abramovich, who runs the risk of irking Blues fans with a managerial appointment for a second time in a year. That comes contrary to reports earlier in the month that the two could finally reconcile, so tread carefully before you bet on the identity of the next Chelsea boss. Incoming Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is ready to go head-to-head with Real Madrid in the battle for £50 million-rated Gareth Bale. Superlatives for the Tottenham ace have been ubiquitous this week and Guardiola too has clearly been impressed by what he has seen of the Welshman; he will be given a £100m war chest in the summer, £50m of which he is willing to splash on Bale, according to the Daily Mail. The paper says: "It is widely acknowledged that Real ...
Chelsea have suffered a major blow in their search for a new permanent manager after Jurgen Klopp insisted he will not move to ‐Stamford Bridge next season. The 45-year-old Borussia Dortmund boss is one of Chelsea’s main targets to take charge next term after their first choice, Pep Guardiola, decided to join Bayern Munich in the summer. Klopp is one of the best young coaches in Europe, having won the Double in 2012 playing an exciting brand of football. He also impressed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich as Dortmund topped a Champions League group this season featuring Real Madrid, Ajax and Manchester City. -jla
Football - Premier League Paper Round: Chelsea's new move for Klopp Chelsea have settled on their first choice to take over as permanent manager, according to the Daily Telegraph: Borussia Dortmund's Juergen Klopp. The Telegraph reports that there are "serious concerns" among the Stamford Bridge hierarchy that bringing Jose Mourinho back would be a mistake, despite the fact that the Portuguese boss is said to be lobbying for a return. And with Pep Guardiola having chosen Bayern Munich for his next job, that leaves Klopp as Chelsea's "key target" with the Blues determined to make a fresh approach. That's despite the fact that he rebuffed their approaches last year, has since signed a new deal with Dortmund that runs until 2016 and is considered a shoo-in to take over as Germany coach when Joachim Loew moves on. Short of him publicly wearing a t-shirt declaring that "Roman Abramovich is a nincompoop" we're not really sure how much more he could do to signal his total lack of interest in the job. In short, d ...
Chelsea are more hopeful than ever that they can lure Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge to become their permanent manager again next season. The club have made Mourinho their new first-choice target to take charge next season after Pep Guardiola snubbed them in favour of a switch to Bayern Munich last month. Current interim first-team coach Rafael Benitez, who replaced Roberto Di Matteo on a short-term contract in November, is not expected to be in the running as he boasts the worst record of any coach in the Roman Abramovich era. Mourinho has been linked with a return to the west London club almost every season since he was sacked by them in 2007 after three impressive years in charge and he has always spoken of a desire to return. The 50-year-old, who is certain to leave Real Madrid in the summer, won five major trophies during his time at the helm, including back-to-back Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006. Mourinho has been revered by the players and the fans ever since, although relations with ...
Mourinho would choose Inter over Chelsea According to reports, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho would welcome a return to management in Italy rather than England. by Jason Pettigrove It would appear that Jose Mourinho’s days at Real Madrid are numbered with a divorce at the end of this season the most likely scenario. There will be no shortage of takers for the services of the ‘Special One’ and reports indicate that the Portuguese would prefer a return to Italy. Internazionale, where he won the treble, would be his preferred destination, but after losing out on Pep Guardiola, it is expected that Roman Abramovich will do everything in his power to rekindle a relationship that appeared broken a few years ago. Mourinho has not entirely dismissed a return to Stamford Bridge and he has made no secret of his love for the English Premier League. However, he has often remarked in interviews that his favourite football memory was his Champions League win with the Milan club. inside spanish football, admin andr ...

Stuttering Blues, Gunners ready for battle Chelsea and Arsenal square off on Sunday with the loser of the fixture likely to suffer a blow to their seasonal objectives. The Blues are 13 points behind league leaders Manchester United and have all but admitted defeat in the title race. A win against their erstwhile rivals, however, could help ease the pressure on interim manager Rafael Benitez who would have been heartened by the news of Pep Guardiola's appointment at Bayern Munich earlier in the week. Arsenal will also be looking to get themselves firing again in the Barclays Premier League and boost their chances of a top-four finish when they travel to the Stamford Bridge following last weekend's disappointing 2-0 defeat by Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium. The Blues have struggled for consistency at home this year under interim manager Benitez, and on Wednesday night blew a 2-0 lead to draw with relegation battlers Southampton. Chelsea fans could soon again be on the Spaniard's case should Arsenal ...
What does Pep Guardiola's Bayern move mean for Chelsea? By Alistair Magowan BBC Sport Wednesday was not a particularly good day if you were a disgruntled Chelsea fan, and there seems to be several of those at the moment. With Pep Guardiola already linked with a move to Stamford Bridge next season, they awoke to news that the Former Barcelona boss would relish an English challenge. Then they found out later in the day that the Spaniard, 42 on Friday, would be heading to Bayern Munich next season. As if that was not enough, Chelsea threw away a two-goal lead against Southampton to draw 2-2 to continue their wretched run of home form. For supporters who have always opposed the appointment of interim boss Rafael Benitez, Guardiola offered hope. It also looked like the obvious strategy for owner Roman Abramovich. Now the options are more limited for a club still struggling to evolve its playing squad. There is some good news, though. Former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin believes that Guardiola's move has changed li ...

After Pep Guardiola has made up his mind to manage Bayern Munich, following frantic efforts by Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich to bring the managerial "golden boy" to the Stamford Bridge, what is left for Chelsea, who, day by day, were growing in confidence to snap up Pep Guardiola? Here I present to you the list of managers who Chelsea could fall on should they dispense off the services of Rafael Benitez at the end of the season, who is also rumoured to have agreed a deal in principle to become the next Real Madrid gaffer: * Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid) The first manager to have served under Roman Abramovich and the first to have parted ways with the club under Roman Abramovich after delivering 6 trophies in his three-year spell at the club, including the much sought after Premier League trophy that had proved elusive for over 45 years. Given the vast and wealth of experience in the game and his no introduction status coupled with his Midas touch instincts, there shouldn't be no reason why he cannot creat ...
Chelsea 2 Southampton 2: Rafa's home struggle continues as Blues squander two-goal lead Chelsea suffered another case of the Stamford Bridge blues as they threw away a two-goal lead to Southampton. Demba Ba, with his 14th Barclays Premier League strike of the season, and Eden Hazard had put Chelsea in firm control and they seemed to be cruising to a first home victory since before Christmas. But Rickie Lambert pulled Southampton back into the game with a header three minutes after being sent on and Jason Puncheon then equalised with a brilliant volley. Since their 8-0 rout of Aston Villa on December 23, Chelsea have lost at home to QPR and Swansea and now drawn with the relegation-battling Saints. There had been no audible boos of Rafael Benitez before kick-off, perhaps because he chose to start with Ba ahead of Fernando Torres and with Frank Lampard in midfield. But hours after Pep Guardiola announced he was taking charge of Bayern Munich, the dissent towards Benitez on the final whistle was clear. The p ...
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to offer Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola €63m (£52m) over three seasons to move to Stamford Bridge next season.
CHELSEA DAH MULAKAN LANGKAH UNTUK DAPATKAN PEP GUARDIOLA Roman Abramovich will make Pep Guardiola a ‘take it or leave it’ £18 million-a-year deal to become Chelsea’s next manager in the summer. Owner Abramovich is willing to make the Former Barcelona coach the world’s highest-paid boss. He has not given up hope of bringing Guardiola to Stamford Bridge, even if he has to fight a four-way battle with Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Manchester City. Abramovich will offer Guardiola £54m over three years – more than double the salary of Sir Alex Ferguson, who is the highest-paid manager in British football at £7.6m a year. Abramovich, who is currently on holiday in the Caribbean, is understood to be furious about Wednesday night’s damaging 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea at Stamford Bridge. Interim manager Rafa Benitez’s job is safe for the moment, but the Spaniard, appointed until the summer, has no chance of getting the job permanently no ...

Chelsea vs. Queens Park Rangers: Getting desperate for Harry Redknapp QPR are very desperate for points, but they'll find them hard to come by at Stamford Bridge. The much-hyped post-court case battle between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea this fall produced a dull 0-0 draw where a fierce, hotly contested derby should have taken place. Hopefully, with new management on both sides, Wednesday evening's encounter is a bit more entertaining for the neutrals. After a very rocky start under Rafael Benitez, Chelsea look like they might finally be hitting their stride. They're probably in too much of a hole to compete for a title, but they look like a team that should comfortably finish in the top four to put themselves in a great position to excel when either Pep Guardiola or Jose Mourinho becomes their club savior this summer. QPR are in a much different situation, sitting on the bottom of the table. If it takes 40 points to survive in the Premier League most seasons, they need to start racking up results quic ...

Roberto Mancini will be given the time he deserves to hunt down Manchester United at the top of the Premier League. More than ever before, managers at big clubs find themselves under intense pressure after a couple of poor results but Mancini will have been helped by the disgraceful way Roberto Di Matteo was treated by Chelsea. Roman Abramovich was rightly ridiculed for sacking the man who brought the Champions League trophy to Stamford Bridge for the first time. The appointment of Rafa Benitez has caused a stink and even if City’s board have thought about pressing the panic button, the outcry caused by Di Matteo’s dismissal will have made them think again. Mancini, of course, must still win something this season. The names of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola keep cropping up. But the key is that Mancini will be given the chance to turn the situation around. City are still in the title race. Nothing has been decided. If United were winning all their games 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0, I would question how they cou ...
Chelsea made history last week for all the wrong reasons, despite a powerful 6-1 win over Danish side FC Nordsjaelland in a midweek Champions League group stage match. The Blues, the defending champions, were eliminated from Europe's premier club football tournament, becoming the first holders to surrender their crown so early in the season. The win at Stamford Bridge should have been accompanied by a positive result for Ukrainian Premier League side Shakhtar Donetsk, who, having already qualified, were hosting Italian champions Juventus at the Donbass Arena. Unfortunately for Roman Abramovich's side, the eastern Europeans were beaten by an Olexandr Kucher own goal, just before the hour mark. Guardiola has been linked with several clubs after leaving the Spanish giants Barcelona last summer Abramovich's sacking of the Champions League-winning Roberto Di Matteo led to suggestions that Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola would be targeted with renewed vigour. The Catalan was the subject of considerable spe ...
EXCLUSIVE: As Guardiola mulls Chelsea switch Abramovich weighs up Dortmund's Klopp as Plan B Chelsea have begun drawing up a list of second-choice managerial candidates as fears grow over their chances of luring Pep Guardiola to Stamford Bridge. The Former Barcelona boss has expressed reservations about working for Roman Abramovich and is said to have been surprised by Roberto Di Matteo's sacking only six months after leading the club to the Champions League and Fa Cup. Guardiola also knows that Abramovich has got through eight managers in nine-and-a-half years and is not convinced he will be allowed the time he needs to put his stamp on the club if he hits a bad run of results. Furthermore, Guardiola is demanding total control of the club's footballing operation, something that has not always been permitted during the Abramovich era.

Chelsea have been warned off nagging Pep Guardiola about taking charge at Stamford Bridge. The Sun says Blues owner Roman Abramovich is desperate to confirm Guardiola as his new long-term manager after sacking Roberto Di Matteo and appointing Rafa Benitez as interim boss. But the former Nou Camp idol is growing increasingly irritated by persistent approaches from Chelsea. His advisors made it clear to Abramovich that Guardiola does not appreciate the mounting pressure they are putting on him to reveal his next club. Abramovich wants an indication from Guardiola that he would be willing to come to London when his sabbatical is up — well aware that Paris St Germain and both Manchester clubs are also interested. But the man who won 14 titles in four years at Barcelona is refusing to be rushed into a decision. -jla
Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge wants to make a January exit from Stamford Bridge - with Liverpool his first-choice destination. A number of clubs are understood to be interested in the striker but Liverpool and Chelsea have begun talks over a £15m deal and Sturridge has set his sights on a move to Anfield reports the Evening Standard. The 23-year-old, who joined from Manchester City for £6.5m in 2009, has become increasingly frustrated over his lack of starts up front and hopes a deal with the Reds will be agreed. There have been reports that Sturridge has demanded £80,000-a-week to join the Reds, as well as guarantees over a starting role, however the striker's representatives have denied this. "Daniel Sturridge does not conduct his business in public," they said. "He also does not make demands in any negotiation, with regards to salary or his playing position. "Any contract between a club and a player has to be based on mutual agreement." The former City trainee has scored 24 goals in 95 appearance ...
Sid Lowe: The Former Barcelona manager would get guarantees denied others at Stamford Bridge but would he really fit there?
Pep Guardiola is determined to continue his sabbatical in New York and will not accept an offer from Chelsea, in case the London club would contact him. Goal.com have learned, from sources very close to the Catalan coach, that the possibilities of him traveling to London are "minimal, to say that there are any". According to those sources, Guardiola is enjoying this time with family and feels it is too early to a return to the pitch. He is also aware that when he decides to return there will be no shortage of interesting offers from top clubs, so he’s not in any hurry to end his voluntary retirement. In addition, the manager doesn’t think the Blues are the right place for him, based on the usual treatment that the Roman Abramovich led board has dispensed to the coaches who have gone through the Stamford Bridge bench. When he comes back, Guardiola wants to be part of a serious project, where he will have time to put his ideas in practice, and it seems to him that Chelsea is not the place to do it. Neve ...
Sid Lowe: Far from drawing the Former Barcelona manager closer to Stamford Bridge, Roberto Di Matteo's sacking may have pushed Roman Abramovich's first choice further away

Chelsea Football Club are pleased to announce that, contrary to reports, Pep Guardiola has not been sacked for a lack of results since being linked with the job on Wednesday. We at Chelsea Football Club can see the funny side of this story, we have after all proven in the past that we do indeed have a sense of humour, we signed Torres ffs!

Transfer Conspiracy Theory: Chelsea and the great gaffer hunt. I pigeonhole Roman Abramovich because it's fun to. I have no dirt on the guy. As far as billionaire megalomaniacs go, he seems pretty normal. Here goes... I was wrong to assume that Pep Guardiola would eventually join Chelsea. I think Roman and Jose are concocting a special plan to bring the Special One, I'm sorry, the 'ONLY' one, back to Stamford Bridge with none other than Cristiano Ronaldo in his pocket. Here's how it works - 1. Mourinho does not love Real Madrid. He says he does, but he doesn't. He loves Mourinho and I don't blame him. Roman Abramovich also loves Mourinho and knows that he is the surest ticket to European domination when Pep ends the soul search and returns to Barça. 2. Mourinho gets a fictional phone call from Roman. "Jose, come back and bring Ronaldo with you." Mourinho chuckles, calls Andre Villas Boas, and offers an olive branch by paying a respectable fee for Modric. He also demands the right of first refusal on all ...

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is not worried about the "shadow" of Pep Guardiola hanging over him at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea to confirm Di Matteo as manager before weekend Chelsea are expected to confirm Roberto Di Matteo as permanent manager before the weekend. The Mirror says Di Matteo is expected to be confirmed as Chelsea's next full-time manager within 24 hours. But the Italian will begin his official reign under the shadow of Blues owner Roman Abramovich's chosen one, Pep Guardiola. Di Matteo will surely know that Abramovich still wants Guardiola and that if the Catalan gives any signal he is ready to swap Brooklyn Bridge for Stamford Bridge, he is in danger of being jettisoned with no warning. My Take Na which kind job b this, for God sake?
Chelsea To Offer Di Matteo Job  Published on June 7, 2012 by admin · No Comments Chelsea have told Roberto Di Matteo they would like him to remain as manager, with sources at Stamford Bridge increasingly confident the Italian will still be in charge at the start of the new season. Roman Abramovich is now understood to view Di Matteo as a serious replacement for Andre Villas-Boas after trying, and seemingly failing, to persuade Pep Guardiola to cut short his sabbatical after leaving Barcelona to move to Stamford Bridge. Nothing has been agreed yet, and last night it remained unclear as to how long a contract is being discussed for the man who guided the club to a stunning Champions League and Fa Cup double last month. Di Matteo may also still have issues. It will concern him that he could be keeping the managerial seat warm while the club wait for Guardiola. He also has options in Italy. The Chelsea players would welcome Di Matteo continuing. They told Abramovich as much in Munich after lifting th ...

Drogba confirms Chelsea exit Posted by Weboga on May 22, 2012 at 7:53am in football Kickoff 9ja Didier Drogba has confirmed he will leave Chelsea this summer but Fernando Torres will not be following his fellow striker out of the club despite the Champions League winners’ hierarchy having been left distinctly unimpressed by the timing of the Spaniard’s publicly expressed frustration at life as a bit-part player at Stamford Bridge. Drogba is expected to join the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, who could offer wages of up to €310,000 a week, after telling France Football magazine that he broke down when telling his team-mates that he will be moving on. The 34-year-old said he did not “envisage sitting on the bench watching others play at a time when the club is looking at putting together a new team” – and it appears this fresh Chelsea will have room for Torres, who within hours of the European Cup triumph voiced exasperation at playing second fiddle to Drogba. The Spaniard claimed starting on th ...
From zeros to heroes, chumps to champs: in three short months Roberto Di Matteo steered Chelsea back from the precipice to the greatest moment in the club's history. Chelsea's stunning Champions League victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday completed one of the most dramatic reversals of fortune in football history, the glorious final act of a season which had once threatened to unravel. When Di Matteo was appointed as interim manager following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas in early March, few observers viewed the Former Chelsea midfielder as a viable long-term candidate for the job. In the days that followed Villas-Boas's dismissal, a laundry list of potential managers were name-checked in connection with the vacancy at Stamford Bridge - Pep Guardiola, Rafael Benitez, David Moyes, even former boss Jose Mourinho. Meanwhile, down at Chelsea's Cobham training base, on the leafy outskirts of London, Di Matteo was quietly setting about the task of restoring belief in a team who had won only once in their ...
Diego Maradona says he would not be surprised to see Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola taking over the reins at Chelsea. - Blues keep Di Matteo in dark - Gourlay: Di Matteo must wait - Johnson: What's at stake on Sunday On Saturday, Guardiola's men were held to a 2-2 draw in his final league game in charge before leaving the Camp Nou in order to take a one-year sabbatical. Meanwhile, Chelsea are yet to offer interim manager Roberto Di Matteo a permanent deal, leading Argentina legend Maradona to suggest Guardiola may be lured to Stamford Bridge. "Pep Guardiola, a brilliant coach whom I admire, has announced that he will take a sabbatical in front of an emotional home Barcelona crowd. But don't be surprised if he quickly resurfaces at Chelsea, should Abramovich make him a huge offer," Maradona wrote in the Times of India. Maradona also took time to praise the contribution of compatriot Carlos Tevez ahead of the final day in the Premier League season. City, who also boast Maradona's son-in-law Sergio Aguero, mus ...

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola claims Chelsea are now favourites to reach the Champions League final after the holders were beaten at Stamford Bridge.
WORDS HAVE POWER. Best dicriptive way of writing. "Stamford Bridge is somewhere Barça are very uncomfortable and Chelsea are a thoroughly unpleasant rival for [Pep] Guardiola, who was forced to suffer the sentence of Sisyphus. [Barcelona] drag a stone up the side of a mountain and every time they reach the top, the rock falls down the slope again. Or to put it another way: they went to Stamford Bridge and rained headers over and over again against a Blue Wall."
