According to Italian publication Corriere della Serra, Inter Milan could look to swoop in for Diego Simeone at the end of the season amid uncertainty surrounding his future at Atletico Madrid.

Simeone has been at Atletico Madrid for almost 12 years and has taken the club to great heights, winning several titles and trophies along the way.

However, things have not been going all too well for El Cholo and the Rojiblancos this season, as they crashed out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stages while also failing to qualify for the Europa League.

There is a feeling that the partnership might have reached the end of the cycle, with reports in suggesting that Simeone has decided to leave Atletico at the end of the season and has already informed CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin of his decision.

Should that happen, Inter Milan could be lying in wait to make a move and appoint Simeone as their manager in the summer.

The Nerazzurri currently have Simone Inzaghi as their head coach but things have not been going all too well under the Italian this term as they are ten points behind Serie A leaders Napoli. So, there could be a possibility of making a change at the end of the season.

And Simeone, who represented Inter Milan as a player in the past, and has previously admitted that he dreams of returning to the club as a manager.

That dream could become a reality in the summer, if he does indeed decide to move on from Atletico Madrid.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
