Chelsea are possible destinations for former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, according to his agent.

The Spaniard has been heavily linked with AC Milan recently, but his agent Jose Maria Orobitg rubbished rumours suggesting a deal had been reached and opened the door for a move to the Premier League.

Chelsea are believed to be long-term admirers of the ex-Barca coach, with the club’s owner Roman Abramovich coveting the style of play adopted by the manager.

City are also in the frame with current boss Roberto Mancini under increased pressure following two disappointing Champions League campaigns.

Orobitg claimed that both club’s are viable options for his client:

“Milan is an option, as are Manchester City and Chelsea.” He is quoted by ESPN.

“Pep is listening to offers and evaluating them, but he will not coach this year. We’ll talk about it in June.”

However, he did highlight AC Milan as the most likely option:

“Anything is possible next year. I speak to (Milan vice-president Adriano) Galliani all the time, and when I speak to him he is very friendly.

“We have a good relationship. Who knows what will happen in the future.”

Guardiola resigned as manager of Barcelona during the summer after an immensely successful period with the Catalan giants.
