Diego Simeone has admitted that Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin could leave on a free agent after this season. The Argentinian also denied that his club are not prepared to offer the Uruguayan centre-back a new deal before the season ends.
The 32-year-old joined Atletico in 2010 and has played over 250 official games for the club, but is now looking to leave with Internazionale being firm favourites to sign him. According to Simeone Godin could still sign a new deal in Madrid.
“Both Atleti and the player are seeking the best solution for all parties,” Simeone told reporters. “The club and Godin know what I think about this. If he does remain with us, it’ll be because it’s best for him and the club.”
