Diego Simeone has no intention of leaving At. Madrid, has had no contact from #Arsenal now or in the past and it's not in his immediate plans (say, next year) to go to Arsenal or any other PL club.

It is suggested that the 49-year-old is in the middle of a transition phase at the Spanish club, and he would like to keep working on that in the future.
Is that the end of Simeone chase?
There were recent reports by the Sun claiming that Atletico Madrid were close to sacking the South American after he had overseen a tricky period at the beginning of the La Liga campaign.
With many names being thrown in the air, any outcome remains possible and if Simeone was to leave the Spanish side then why wouldn’t Arsenal want to target him.
The 49-year-old has won the league title recently and that is something that has avoided the Gunners for many years, so he would bring the winning mentality that is so desperately needed in North London.
Should Atletico parts ways with the Argentine, Arsenal should go all out to try and secure his services as soon as possible.
