I'd personally (If I were Pep) go with Arsenal, not because I'm a fan, but because I have some money from Barca, and what is important is stability. I'd rather be comfortable, secure and gain 5 million per year , rather than gaining 7,8 Million per year but being uncertain.

Obviously this situation that I am portraying is mostly for managers who have experience, have some money, and do it for the job, not for the paycheck.

But there are some people who work with both; prime example is Abramovich's good friend Jose Mourinho. He would fit in perfectly in Chelsea (again). Anyways we all know he will leave Chelsea before he gets the chance of getting sacked
Yes but there is no guarantee that you will last 5 years with Arsenal. You may get more time but you also get less funds to work with.

You would still get fired if you finish 6th with Arsenal or with Chelsea.
