Chelsea are willing to pay Pep Guardiola a massive Â£15 million-a-year to move to London.
The Daily Express says Chelsea are poised to make a third bid worth Â£15million a year to tempt Guardiola to take over as their manager.
A source close to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich says Guardiola, 41, who left Barcelona after last nightâ€™s Copa del Rey final with Athletic Bilbao following four trophy-filled years, is still the Russianâ€™s No1 choice.
Guardiola announced his intention to take a year out after Barcaâ€™s Champions League semi-final defeat by Chelsea and has rejected two offers from Abramovich, including one of Â£12m a year. But talks continued and it is believed a Â£15m package plus unlimited transfer funds is on offer.
