According to reports, Atletico Madrid, one of the top teams in Spain, and Diego Simeone are about to agree to a new deal.
Having led Atletico since 2011, the 53-year-old Argentine is currently one of the managers with the longest tenure in world football.
Simeone has presided over 638 games across all leagues during that time, winning 377 of them and losing just 114 of them.
Simeone has consistently provided Champions League football at Wanda Metropolitano, with his two La Liga championships and two Europa League triumphs serving as his most prominent accomplishments.
Atletico Madrid has somehow never finished lower than third in Simeone’s 11 seasons in charge, but despite that consistent run, there have frequently been rumours that he may take on a new task in the future.
However, the former midfielder has decided to give Colchoneros his immediate future, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
According to Romano, the pertinent parties have already struck a verbal agreement, and a formal announcement is anticipated soon.
With 19 points after eight games in La Liga, they are five points behind league leaders Real Madrid with one game remaining. They have already beaten their neighbours this year.
Prior to two matches against Celtic, Atletico also managed a 1-1 draw with Lazio and a 3-2 victory against Feyenoord in the Champions League.
Atletico was unable to take advantage of the most fruitful summer transfer window, and Simeone was forced to rely on free and inexpensive transfers.
