Simeone tells Atletico Madrid that he will take charge of Chelsea next season
The summer in the Premier League has all the makings of a busy one with any clubs pondering over an overhaul of the squad including the manager.
Chelsea, who sacked Jose Mourinho in December are also in search of a top class manager even as Guus Hiddink is unbeaten this since he took over the Portuguese at the helm of the club on an interim basis.
But according to reports in Spain, the London franchise has agreed to bring Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone to England to lead the club into the next season.
The Argentine national has grown on to become one of the most reputed managers in Europe since he took charge at the Vincente Calderon but it now seems that he has agreed to a deal to move to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
A number of big-names have been linked with Chelsea in the recent past but Simeone seems to have picked up the job which is vacant at the end of the season.
Diego Simeone’s biggest achievement remains the La Liga victory in 2014, ending the grip of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona the league trophy.
Chelsea are determined to have a permanent manager in place shortly after the season ends as they are trying to get someone for the long term
It is now reported by the Spanish outlet Ok Diario that Simeone has told Atletico that he is leaving after agreeing a £9.28milllion-a-year deal to take over at Stamford Bridge.
The 45-year old who won 5 major title with Atletico Madrid will be one of the many high profile managers in England next season including the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
