Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to make Pep Guardiola the highest paid coach in the game's history.The Sun says Abramovich is ready to make the ex-Barcelona coach the highest paid manager ever on a £300,000-a-week deal.

Yet there is a growing fear within Stamford Bridge Guardiola, 41, could still snub Chelsea due to the constant instability surrounding the club.

Guardiola confirmed this week he will return to football next season after a year out to recharge his batteries.

But he can take his pick from the world's top clubs and even Chelsea's £15million-a-year offer may not convince him to move to London.
