AC Milan are ready to challenge Chelsea for former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola. Corriere dello Sport says Guardiola will decided between Milan and Chelsea when he decides to return to management.

Guardiola has many friends in Italy from his time at Brescia and Roma as a player, while Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has never disguised his admiration.

His agent Josep Maria Orobtig has been instructed to find a club that will give him time to develop his style of football, but also a place where his family can settle in.
