Incredible La Liga boss tipped as next Chelsea manager

A source well-connected at Chelsea tells me he thinks the most likely manager for the club next season is Italian national team coach Antonio Conte.

Simeone, 45, undoubtedly has the credentials to succeed in the Chelsea job having turned Atleti into a significant European force since taking charge at the Vicente Calderon in 2011.

Diego Simeone is ready to become Chelsea's next high-profile manager and has even told Atletico Madrid that he wants to make the move this summer, according to reports from OK Diario.

However, Simeone - who has been in charge of Atletico for five seasons - has been offered a reported £9.2m-a-season to be Chelsea's long-term answer to the predicament.

It was disclosed that Simeone notified the management of the Spanish club that he will leave the club at the end of the season to take over from interim boss Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge.

The Argentine is a hugely popular figure with fans of the La Liga club due to his passionate manner on the touchline, and for leading the side to a first league title in 18 years in 2014 and to only a second ever Champions League final.

Or you could look at Sport Witness' twitter account and see tweets like this in relation to the reporter on the Simeone to Chelsea stuff.

The Premier League champions have been without a permanent manager since they parted ways with Jose Mourinho last December.
