Pep Guardiola is set to become Europe’s most wanted man after revealing he will spend just one more year at Barcelona.

Guardiola insists he will honour the 12-month contract he signed recently with the Champions League winners, but is then anxious to work in a different country.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is among those who would love to lure Guardiola away from Barca.

But with the 41-year-old – one of a handful of men to have lifted the European Cup with Barcelona as a player and manager – adamant that won’t happen this summer, managerless Chelsea will instead turn to Guus Hiddink in the next week.

“I have another year on my contract and I intend to work it out,” said Guardiola. “You have girls falling at your feet when you win but that can change overnight.

“I feel privileged to have these players. Everyone has worked towards this. We are very happy.

“But I have to look inside me. I am happy to be here as coach of these guys, but it is not an easy job.

“In England it can be 25 years, in Spain it is impossible. They are different ways. For him [Alex Ferguson, boss of beaten finalists Manchester United] to be manager for 25 years and create new teams and new teams, he has my admiration. I know it is difficult.

“If you play this football [like Barcelona], you need these players. At another club maybe I would have a problem to find these kind of players.”
