Sources told ESPN last week that Simeone’s agent and sister, Natalia Simeone, met with Atleti chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin to discuss a new contract for the coach.

Simeone received a tempting offer to coach a Saudi Pro League club Al Ahly Last summer, but sources told ESPN his preference was to stay with the team for whom he made more than 100 appearances across two spells as a player.

The 53-year-old coached River Plate among other clubs in his native Argentina and had a short spell at Italian club Catania before eventually taking over at Atletico Madrid.

After their 6-0 win vs Celtic on Sunday, Atleti are now fourth in the league table, six points behind leaders Girona.
