Chelsea ready to offer Diego Simeone job


Roman Abramovich ready to offer Atletico boss £7.65million a year

Chelsea are lining up a huge £7.65m deal to lure Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone to Stamford Bridge.

Simeone was identified as the main man to succeed Jose Mourinho and it appears they have already made contact.

The Argentine has won two Copa Del Rey’s and one La Liga title with Atletico and were runners-up in the Champions League final 2014.

Fresh challenge

According to reports in Spain, Atletico have accepted the fact they may lose Simeone in the summer so have already lined up his replacement.

The club have identified Sevilla coach Unai Emery as their preferred choice, according to Don Balon.

Should negations fail between Simeone, it is likely that Chelsea will appoint caretaker manager Guus Hiddink on a permanent basis.
