Diego Simeone is the coach with the highest salary in the world, with an income of about 34 million euros/year. However, according to Cadena SER, the Argentine captain is willing to reduce his salary to continue working with the Metropolitano team. Specifically, reports say the cut will be around 20-30%.
At this time, journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed, Negotiations between the two sides have reached the final stage, in the context that El Cholo’s current contract will expire at the end of the season.
Sharing on Twitter, Romano said: “The negotiation process to sign a new contract is in the final stage, almost complete.”
Romano also quoted Simeone when asked about negotiations: “My extension? We have to think about Las Palmas.”
Currently, Atletico Madrid is starting the season quite well. They are ranked 3rd in La Liga with 25 points after 10 matches, 3 points behind top team Real Madrid. Even if they win in the make-up match, Simeone and his team can rise to the top of the table.
