Diego Simeone breaks the silence after reports claim he will replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal


Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has rubbished rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal, insisting he will stay at the club.

The 47-year-old is one of the most wanted managers in Europe with Internazionale also reported to be interested.

He enjoyed yet another successful campaign with Los Colchoneros, finishing third in the Liga behind Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"I am staying here," he said last weekend.

"I am going to stay because this club has a future and the future is all of us together.

"We are finishing the season now, and for sure on Monday we will meet with [president] Miguel [Angel Gil Martin], [sporting director] Andrea [Berta], to discuss what could be waiting for us in the future.

"Obviously we will look for the best for the club and for everyone. We will speak about the growth for our future. The base is there, solid, with six years competing in an extraordinary way.

"The tremendous stadium we enter in September will make further demands, we all need to take another step to match it."
