PSG due to meet with Diego Simeone

According to our colleagues at RMC, PSG are due to meet with Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone in the coming weeks.

This report comes on the day that PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi refused to confirm that Laurent Blanc’s job was safe.

Last year, PSG sounded out Diego Simeone before he signed a contract extension with Atletico Madrid until 2020.

At the time, the Argentinian told PSG that he had no intention of leaving Spain.

However, this summer things are different. Simeone has told members of his entourage that he is thinking about leaving Atletico Madrid this summer. Advised mainly by his sister and Jorge Mendes, Simeone decided to go on holiday before coming back to Madrid to discuss his future.

Jorge Mendes, who has become close to Nasser Al Khelaifi over the last 18 months, is in the process of trying to bring the two parties together for discussions.

PSG expect to hold discussions with Diego Simeone in order to better understand his intentions. His image and influence on his players have convinced PSG to make him one of their highest priority targets.
