Gigi Simoni claims Diego Simeone’s dream “is to return to Inter” as they are the “only club he’ll leave Atletico Madrid for”.
Simeone remains heavily linked with Inter, despite Stefano Pioli’s recent appointment, having played for the club between 1997 and 1999 and recently downsized his Atleti contract to 2018.
“Diego has a Nerazzurro heart, he’s fond of Inter and Italy,” Simoni, who coached the Argentine in his first season with the Nerazzurri, told Interdipenza.net.
“His dream is to return to Inter, he revealed it to me. His heart still beats strong for our colours, he’s had many big offers, but he’ll only leave Atletico for Inter.
“He wants clarity on their project: once the club can make guarantees, talks to get him in will be opened.”
