Diego Simeone: Diego Godin could leave Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone admits Diego Godin could leave Atletico Madrid this summer as the defender’s biographer speaks of ‘broken promises’.

Sky Sport Italia reported late on Friday that Inter were close to signing Godin on a free transfer, although the claim was quickly refuted by AS.

Nonetheless, Simeone said at a Press conference for Atleti’s Liga trip to Sevilla on Sunday: “Both Atleti and the player are seeking the best solution for all parties.

“The club and Godin know what I think about this. If he does remain with us, it’ll be because it’s best for him and the club.”

Meanwhile, Jose Ignacio Fernandez, who wrote his biography ‘Courage, Heart and Head’, tweeted: “Godin has not signed any agreement with Inter, but the truth is that Atletico made promises to the player after the Manchester United offer and never kept them.

“They’ve made no effort at all to renew Godin’s contract.”

The Uruguay international turns 33 next month and is free to negotiate with other clubs as his contract expires in June.
