Simeone keen on defending the LaLiga title by signing Lautaro Martinez

Mon 07 June 2021 | 8:10

Diego Simeone, the manager of Atletico Madrid, is already thinking about defending his La Liga championship in 2021-22.

In the closing stages of the 2020/21 season, Simeone led Los Rojiblancos to their first league title since 2014, as they held off their championship opponents. 

Despite their achievement, the club has quickly returned to its day task in recent weeks, with Simeone's contract renewal being a primary concern. 

The Argentinian's current contract ends at the end of next season, but he is allegedly close to agreeing to a new agreement that will keep him at the club until the conclusion of the 2023/24 season.

In addition to his own deal, the Argentine wants to make an impact in the transfer window, and according to sources from

Diario AS

, he might sign Inter Milan forward

Lautaro Martinez

Martinez has been rumored with a move to Barcelona in the past, but their interest looks to have waned, and Atletico might pounce. 

The door is open for Martinez to go, with

Romelu Lukaku

pledging his future to the Nerazzurri, and the

La Liga

champions might negotiate a deal for €65 million.
