Diego Simeone set to agree Atletico Madrid contract renewal

Diego Simeone has agreed a contract renewal at Atletico Madrid which will see the Coach extend his stay at the club until the summer of 2021.

The Argentine’s current deal at Los Rojiblancos is due to expire in 2020 – at the end of next season – but Diario AS report an agreement has been found between the parties for an extension.

Simeone’s sister and agent Natalia has reportedly negotiated a fresh deal which will increase the Coach’s salary, which is said to already be the third highest of manager’s within world football, currently cited at €22m.

Atleti are currently five points behind Barcelona in the Spanish league standings but they are unbeaten in their last 17 league matches.

Simeone replaced Gregorio Manzano in the position midway through the 2011-12 campaign.
