News of Simeone’s reported decision to leave Atletico Madrid will come as a boost to Manchester United and Chelsea’s bid to sign Antoine Griezmann next summer.
The France international, who recently signed a new deal with Atletico, revealed earlier this week that he would only consider leaving the Vicente Calderon if Simeone departs.
”The only doubt would be if Simeone leaves for PSG or wherever,” Griezmann told Telefoot.
“I called him before extending my contract and he confirmed to me that he was staying. I can learn a lot from him.
“PSG are not my goal at the moment. I’m happy in Spain,” the former Real Sociedad ace added.
“I’m always proud to be popular with the fans. I try to smile and do my best. If they like it, it’s even better.”
