Pep will keep all options open

PEP GUARDIOLA has ruled nothing in or out while he sits back and contemplates a queue of the biggest clubs in world football all fighting it out for his signature.

"The doors are open for Milan, just like they are open for Manchester City, Chelsea and so on," said Guardiola's agent, José Maria Orobitg, immediately cranking up the heat under Roberto Mancini and Roberto di Matteo.

"Anything is possible for next season and I've already said this before.

"I always speak with Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani and he's always very kind. The relationship between us is good. Who knows what will happen in the future.

"Pep will listen to offers and then he will evaluate them. But so far we haven't talked about Milan, which is also because Guardiola (above) won't be coaching until next term. We will talk about his future again in June.

"I won't rule out anything but when I say that everything is possible then I'm also referring to Manchester City, Chelsea and other important clubs."
