Diego Simeone's Contract At Atletico Madrid Has Been Shortened
A number of interested clubs will be delighted to read that Diego Simeone has reportedly agreed to a reduction on his current deal at Atletico Madrid.
Back in March 2015, Simeone signed five-year £4.4 million contract extension at the Vicente Calderon but according to Spanish publication AS, the Argentinian has negotiated to reduce the contract down two years to 2018.
The likes of Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain have reportedly been interested in acquiring his services in the past but Simeone's contract, which tied him down at Atletico until 2020, arguably discouraged clubs from making an offer.

Despite the contract reduction, the 40-year-old will remain the highest paid manager in La Liga, earning more than Zinedine Zidane and Luis Enrique.
This, along with Antoine Griezmann's situation at Atletico, is certainly going to rock the boat at the Vicente Calderon.

These are certainly worrying times at Atletico but looking back at their achievements in recent years, the club will recover from a potential clear-out.
