Simeone Identifies Chelsea’s Diego Costa As Prime Target After Deciding To Stay At Atletico
The former Argentine international guided his team into the Champions League final, where they were beaten by city rivals Real Madrid on penalties.
Simeone had previously stated that he was “thinking about thinking” about resigning as the head-coach of the Los Rojiblancos.
Later, he declared that he was willing to continue as the manager as long as he was allowed to spend big this summer, and with Atletico now considered one of Europe’s top club, he will more than likely get his wish.
Los Rojiblancos President Gil Marin has given his nod to Simeone’s demands and the former player will be given a massive transfer budget to sign any player that he wants.
Simeone is looking to sign a top defender and a deadly striker, having already secured the signature of long-term target Nicolas Gaitan from Benfica.
