Diego Simeone indicated that Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin could leave as a free agent, but denied suggestions that the club are making no effort to keep the defender.
With media reports claiming the Uruguayan will move to Inter in Serie A when his contract expires in June, Simeone was quizzed on Godin’s future in his press conference ahead of Atletico’s clash with Sevilla.
Simeone said the club are working to find a solution to the situation, but left the possibility of Godin’s departure open.
“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.”
