Diego Pablo Simeone

According to Spanish sources Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has put Atletico boss Simeone at the top of his wish list for the role of next permanent manager the club.

Yesterday Pep Guardiola announced that his wish is to manage in the Premier League and also revealed that he got offers from some English clubs but it appears that Chelsea have given up on landing the Spaniard, turning their attention to Simeone since rivals Manchester City and Manchester United both want Guardiola.

Simeone has an impressive score at Atletico Madrid: since he arrived in December 2011 he won la Liga, the Copa del Rey, the UEFA Cup, a European Super Cup ( against Chelsea) and Spanish Super Cup.

He also reached an unexpected Champions League final in 2014, where he was beated by rivals Real Madrid only at the extra time.
