Diego Simeone is set to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of next season according to multiple reports.
Reports in Spain suggest that Simeone has taken the step to reduce the length of his contract by two years, making him a free agent in the summer of 2018, instead of 2020, which his initial contract stated.
According to the reports, the Argentine is seeking to bring an end to his time in the Spanish capital having won five trophies for the club and taken them to two Champions League finals, as well as winning their first La Liga title in 2014 for the first time since 1996.
Simeone signed a new contract in March of last year that would have seen him remain at the Vicente Calderon until the summer of 2020, but will now leave two years early, but in time to usher them into their new stadium.
Already, the former club skipper is regarded as a legend at the club, and is seen as their most successful manager in history.
His reported impending exit should alert several Premier League clubs, but the reports have also claimed that he would rather prefer a move to Italy when he finally leaves Atletico.
