Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho have both underlined their desire to coach in the Premier League in the future.

Guardiola is understood to be a target for Chelsea, with Blues owner Roman Abramovich keen to appoint the former Barcelona coach at the end of the season after his year-long break from the game.

Guardiola said: “As a player I couldn’t realise my dream to play there [in England]. But I hope in the future, I have a challenge to be a coach or a manager there.”

Speaking earlier this month, the 41-year-old revealed his intention to return to coaching next season.

“Yes, I would like to come back to coaching [next season],” Guardiola said on 7 January.

“I don’t have a team, I don’t know, but I would like to go back to coaching. My decision has been taken to coach, but beyond that there is no decision taken.”

Mourinho, meanwhile, has long been linked with a return to England and has made no secret of his desire to take charge of a Premier League club again following his trophy-laden spell at Chelsea.

“I know that one one day I will come back because English football means a lot to me,” said the current Real Madrid boss.

The Portuguese coach is said to be Manchester United’s first-choice in the list of candidates to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
