Roberto Di Matteo has cast doubt over whether Barcelona's culture could be exported to another club after Pep Guardiola suddenly became available for the Chelsea job.
Less than three days after being outwitted by caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo in the Champions League semi-finals, Guardiola has confirmed he is quitting as Barca manager at the end of the season.
Although he announced he planned to take a sabbatical, speculation is rife Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will try to make him an offer he cannot refuse.
Guardiola has denied having any contact with Chelsea, insisting it would have shown 'disrespect' to his employers if he had done so
Abramovich is said to have long craved the concept of 'Barcelona in blue shirts', identifying Guardiola as the perfect manager to deliver that vision.
