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.
