Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to make a bumper contract offer to Pep Guardiola. The Daily Mail says Abramovich has been given the green light to make another approach for Guardiola after the former Barcelona coach confirmed he will return to management next season.

Abramovich has made several attempts to recruit Guardiola and Chelsea are at the front of a queue of clubs hoping to secure him as manager next season.

Manchester City are also monitoring his situation, but Chelsea will offer Guardiola £15million a year to become the club's next boss and they are confident of getting their man.
