The name of Diego Simeone continues to be linked with a move to Italy when he brings his tenure at Atlético Madrid to an end. Although the Argentinean has expressed his intention to remain at the Calderón next season regardless of where the team finishes this campaign but cut the length of his contract from 2020 to 2018, which has alerted Serie A to his potential availability.

Inter Milan return

La Gazzetta dello Sport, among others, has constantly linked Simeone with a return to Inter, where he was a player, and the Argentinean has stated that he sees himself coaching the Nerazzurri in the future. The Italian daily postulated that Inter are planning to try and lure Simeone as early as this summer to replace Stefano Pioli in an attempt to revive the club’s fortunes.

Juventus planning for Allegri exit

However, another suitor has emerged in the form of Juventus, who are considering a move for Simeone in the case that Massimiliano Allegri leaves the club. La Gazzetta also mentions Luciano Spalletti and Paulo Sousa as potential candidates to take over at the Serie A champions but state that Simeone has moved to the top of their shortlist if Allegri seeks pastures now.
