Chelsea approach Simeone - and he gives answer...

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has rejected an approach from Chelsea.

The Times says Simeone has been eyed as a successor to Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

But he has no intention of replacing him in west London.

The Argentinian, 47, has made it known through intermediaries that he does not want to be considered for the role and sees his future elsewhere.

Simeone, who has two-and-a-half years left on his contract, will either stay at Atletico or seek a move to old club Inter Milan this summer.
