Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone will demand big changes at Chelsea if he replaces Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge next summer. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the 45-year-old manager is ready to move to England at the close of the season but will expect big changes to be made at Stamford Bridge. 

In fact, the report claims that the revered coach believes the club are in need of major investment and would want strong control on transfer activity in west London.

Under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, Chelsea have endured a torrid season, currently sitting in 16th position in the Premier League. 

Unsurprisingly, then, the long-term future of Mourinho is in some doubt, so it now appears that Simeone could replace the self-proclaimed 'Special One' in the dugout at the Bridge. 

Risky business

Simeone is an exceptionally talented coach, of course, but hiring him would represent a risk for the Chelsea hierarchy. The Argentine certainly has his way of doing things and most definitely feels at home with Atletico Madrid. 

Moving to Chelsea would prove to be a gamble for all involved, but it's one that could pay off in the club's pursuit of long-term success. Mourinho could yet turn things around, but, with seven Premier League defeats already this season, he has it all to do in search of redemption. 

If and when Mourinho does depart, it's crucial Roman Abramovich appoints the right man, but it's far from certain as to whether Simeone would be the right choice at this stage.
