Empire360 Report: Chelsea To Replace Mourinho With Simeone ?


With most everybody outside of Chelsea sniping at Mourinho from all angles, it’s perhaps a bit surprising even that it took this long for rumors like these to start.  Not to worry, here’s the Mirror, citing Portuguese sources, whoever they may be, to lead the way.

Chelsea are looking at Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone as a replacement for Jose Mourinho.

According to sources in Portugal, Mourinho is aware that the Blues are putting a succession plan in place if he fails to turn around Chelsea’s stuttering season. Simeone is admired for the job he has done at Atletico – but he will come at a huge cost.  The Argentine signed a new five-year contract worth a basic £22.5million in March.  The deal included a £15million buy-out clause that either party can trigger at the end of each season.
