Agreement. Diego Pablo Simeone will sign in the coming days a novation of his contract with Atlético for which expand your bond with the rojiblanco team until June 30, 2024. Cholo’s current contract expired on June 30, 2022 and Miguel Ángel Gil has negotiated with Natalia Simeone, sister and agent of the Argentine coach, a new contract to extend the presence of the Argentine coach in front of the mattress team for two more years.
Fringes. The agreement is total in the absence of the classic last fringes. The intention on both sides has been always renew the mutual trust that has been reinforced match by match since Simeone’s arrival in December 2011. The other renewals had been announced between March and April, but in this case the two parties have decided wait for the end of the season.
Fidelity. There has not been no possibility that marriage Atlético-Simeone broke Because neither Cholo has had offers nor Miguel Ángel Gil has ever thought about changing his coach, nor when there were people around him who advised him a few months ago to end the long and successful cycle starring Simeone
Cycle. Gil Marin I was convinced that you could stretch the Simeone cycle as it has been with obtaining the league title after making a spectacular first round in which the team achieved 50 points thanks to the step forward that Cholo took in his approaches, a change in style that has benefited even Koke, as the Atlético captain acknowledged this week in a press conference with the Selection.
Stability. Simeone offers Atletico stability that they envy right now until Madrid and Barça, whose benches are unstable. At Atlético it is known who will be the coach of the following year and it is known who he is team leader. The presence of Simeone is an added value for Atlético.
Extension. The economic situation of Atlético is complicated like that of all clubs. They have called for a capital increase and with that money it is intended to guarantee the continuity of the current squad. That money that would come in is to alleviate the losses due to the global crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, the best signing will be the renewal of Cholo.
Signing. The economic situation is complicated for all football teams, even so, Atlético will try reinforce the squad on all lines, either with purchases or assignments. The Forward that Simeone has asked is Lautaro Martinez. The club is going to try to sign him, but it is a very complicated operation because Inter Milan is asking for 70 million for the transfer of the Argentine striker.
