There has been a lot of noise of late that Simeone will leave Atletico at the end of the season; indeed such speculation rarely seems far away from the Argentine; he was also linked with a move away last summer.
Arsene Wenger is yet to sign an extension with Arsenal despite being in the final year of his contract. several names have been thrown up as to who will take over from Wenger but it is Simeone that is being preferred by the fans of Arsenal.
However, the Argentine has quelled every reports linking him with a possible move to the Emirates.
Speaking after Atletico’s friendly in Saudi Arabia yesterday, Simeone put an end to all the speculation linking him with an imminent departure from the club:
“No, I will not leave Atletico.’
The Premier League is the most attractive in the world and we do not expect Simeone to out rightly say he would leave at the end of this season. Anything is still possible.
