Chelsea closing in on deal thanks to Spanish clubs ban

Thanks to Atletico Madrid being given a two window transfer ban , Chelseas chances of Diego Simeone joining them has received a massive boost.

The Blues are hunting for a new full time manager and have the Argentinian on their radar.

The ban on Atletico was imposed by FIFA and would tie the hands of the manager which would mean that the Spanish side could be weaker at the start of the season if they lose some of their big names this January.

Although there is a promise of an appeal , this may be to long for Simeone and the move to Stamford Bridge may now seem appealing to the 45 year old. © 2017 Frontier Theme
