Arsenal and Liverpool have been put on alert after Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone admitted that he could leave the La Liga side in the future, as reported by the Daily Star.
Simeone was the mastermind behind Atletico’s shock run to the La Liga crown last season, when they pipped both city rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona to the championship, a stunning success for a side that are hampered by comparably weaker financial ability.
They also reached the Champions League final and were only seconds away from winning it before a Sergio Ramos header devastated Atletico’s defence.
Simeone has, as a result, been linked to jobs at Arsenal and Liverpool, with both clubs having performed poorly since the start of the season.
Both Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger are thought to be under pressure at the two Premier League giants.
Simeone himself has ramped up speculation by suggesting that his future is not set.
He said: “I’m a spontaneous guy, and spontaneous people are notoriously impatient. I can’t stay for 10 years at the same club.
“I feel very good at Atletico. I always want to continue improving, I’m never satisfied. I don’t know what the limit of this team is, I will continue looking.”
