Could Atletico man replace the maverick Portuguese?
Read more Chelsea transfer rumours.
Roman Abramovich could dismiss Jose Mourinho after a trophyless season back in England with Chelsea, reports the Express.
The improbable stories are actually emanating from France, and claim that the billionaire Russian owner has been so impressed by Diego Simeone’s season with Atletico Madrid, that he’ll offer the talented Argentine boss the job at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho finished third in the Premier League and was knocked out of the Champions League in the semi-final by Simeone’s Atleti, who won La Liga ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Despite Simeone’s unquestioned managerial ability, it seems extremely unlikely that there’s anything in these reports. It’s far more likely that Mourinho will stay, and instead invest heavily in the side, with Diego Costa an almost guaranteed arrival.
