As one of the most successful managers in Europe, Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has supposedly been on the top of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s target list in case he’s forced to part ways with Jose Mourinho. However, the Bundesliga giants have just thrown a massive obstacle in the Blues owner’s way.
According to the Mirror, Bayern Munich have offered Guardiola a contract extension and a raise to £17 million-a-year to stay in Germany and snub the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. The extension will allegedly run through 2018.
Guardiola is already the highest paid manager in the world at £14 million-a-year, but his contract is scheduled to expire this summer. Jose Mourinho’s currently salary is reportedly £12 million-a-year.
The Bayern Munich boss has won 19 trophies between Real Madrid and his current stint: five league titles, three league cups, three Super Cups, two Champions League titles, three FIFA Club World Cups and three UEFA Super Cups. Between the two clubs, Guardiola has won 73.7% of his matches.
