Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas says he has 'no doubt' Pep Guardiola will manage in England and believes the Premier League is getting tougher.
Bayern München boss Guardiola's future at the Allianz Arena remains uncertain, prompting media reports both in England and Spain to suggest the Spaniard could seek a fresh challenge once his contract expires at the end of the season.
And Fabregas, who worked under Guardiola during their time together at Barcelona, believes the former Spain international will soon make his move to what he described as an increasingly physical league in England.
"Oh I have absolutely no doubt that Pep will test himself in the Premier League," Fabregas told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
"I have spoken to him in the past, and I know that he likes it a lot.
"This year the physical level of the Premier League is absolutely brutal," he added.
"The very least you can give is your absolute all."
