MADRID, Spain - Claudio Ranieri has recently arrived at the Athletcio Training Facility, speculation is growing that he could be the man to replace Sanchez Flores.

Ranieri was most known for his time as Chelsea Boss, before being replaced by Jose Mourinho. Ranieri has won several prestigious trophies, and is a experienced well respected manager. Rencently Ranieri was sacked as boss of Roma, due to several losses. Ranieri said he would like to finish his Managerial Career in Spain, leading to this current speculation.

This means the Job has been occupied, Athletico Madrid have a new manager. The club have agreed terms with an Brazillian manager, although we don't yet know who this is."
Cristopher Hughton,is the name ringing around Madrid. The former Newcastle manager, arrived in Madrid in the early hours of this morning claiming, "I'm off on holiday."
