Departing Barcelona boss Guardiola willing to listen to Chelsea offer May 26, 2012, 6:05 pm

Pep Guardiola is ready to speak to Chelsea about an immediate move.

The Sun says the departing Barcelona boss has abandoned plans for a year off.

That shock change of heart has alerted Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich, who is a massive fan of Guardiola.

The Spaniard now wants clubs to contact him. He said: "I will be pleased to receive their calls. But for the next months I have to charge my batteries and charge my mind.

"I will wait. If they seduce me I will train again. I will be ready once a club wants me."

Sources close to the Russian billionaire claim he is ready to move swiftly to make 41-year-old Guardiola an offer he cannot refuse.
