Inter Milan ‘want Diego Simeone to replace Antonio Conte from Atletico Madrid with questions lingering over future’


INTER MILAN are said to be eyeing Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone – as questions linger over Antonio Conte even before the end of the season.

Ex-Chelsea chief Conte is tipped to depart despite Inter leading Serie A by 11 points and on course for a first title since 2010.

Conte, 51, was thought to have been close to leaving the San Siro last summer amid reports of conflicts with the Inter board.

Now it is thought he could depart as early as this summer, although 2022 and 2023 have also been mentioned.

Yet Inter are well clear of neighbours AC Milan and champions Juventus as they chase their first title since 2009-10 under Treble-winning Jose Mourinho.

Conte’s men have the ideal chance to extend their advantage as they host relegation-threatened Cagliari on Sunday. 

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez saw off Sassuolo 2-1 for their tenth straight league win on Wednesday night.

It follows amazing reports Inter bid £225million for Lionel Messi in 2006.

Instead, one-club legend Messi stayed with Barcelona and became the world’s top player.

Meanwhile, Luis Suarez has been linked with a possible return to Liverpool as he is reportedly unhappy with Simeone’s tactics.

Todofichajes say the pair have a “difficult” relationship.

And ex-Barcelona frontman Suarez, 33, is said to have a clause in his contract enabling him to leave this summer with no penalty.
