Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is set to leave the club in the near future, according to Spanish media outlet El Confidencial.
The former Atletico Madrid player was unveiled as manager a few days before Christmas in 2011. Since then, he has reached great heights with Atletico.
Simeone has won the La Liga, the Spanish Super Cup, the Copa del Rey, as well as the Europa League, and has finished as the Champions League runner up twice in 3 seasons, losing to local rivals Real Madrid in both.
The 46-year-old manager recently signed a contract extending his stay at Atletico upto 2020, but according to El Confidencial, he might be leaving as soon as 2018.
As per the report, news of Simeone leaving before the expiry of his contract has not sat well with the Atletico Madrid hierarchy, and Simeone has a strained relationship with them.
Ans according to rumours, Inter Milan might be Simeone’s next destination.
It might be all doom and gloom at Atletico Madrid, but Simeone’s departure could bring some joy to Manchester United.
In a recent interview, Antoine Griezmann revealed that he would only leave Atletico Madrid if Simeone leaves.
He told Telefoot: “The only doubt would be if Simeone leaves for PSG or wherever. I called him before extending my contract and he confirmed to me that he was staying. I can learn a lot from him.”
