Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has vowed that he will be in charge of Inter in the future.

According to Mediaset, Inter president Massimo Moratti has approached Simeone, 42, about taking over from current coach Andrea Stramaccioni next season.

The former Inter player will be looking for a new club in the summer when his contract with Atletico Madrid is due to end.

“Sooner or later, one day, I will be the coach of Inter,” said Simeone to Sky Sport Italia.

The Argentine spent two years at the San Siro between 1997 and 1999, making around 50 appearances for the club.

“I left many positive memories as a player at Sevilla, Lazio and Inter.

“After all, it happened with Atletico Madrid. I did well here as a player and now I must do well as a coach. We’ll see what destiny has to say.”

Simeone has previous experience as a manager in Serie A with Catania from January to June 2011.

He has also had coaching spells in his home country with four different clubs, before he took charge at the Vicente Calderon.

Atletico Madrid are currently second in Spain’s Primera Division, a place above rivals Real Madrid. VIP Lounge
