  • Diego Simeone: 'Atletico Madrid are closer to Real Madrid'

But the Portugal captain left LaLiga in a sensational €112million switch to Juventus in July following nine trophy and goal-laden seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"My son has everything to play under me, but I will never sign him", Simeone told Cadena Cope on Monday night.

The World Cup victor eventually appeared in a documentary-style video, where he confirmed he would be staying with Simeone's side. There's no explanation [why he's not on FIFA's The Best shortlist].

"From the results we aren't worse than Madrid or Barca, from the individual characteristics of our players, yes".

"Oblak is the best, and at least in the top three keepers in the world", Simeone said. It is a pity. The truth is that I feel sorry for the boy, it makes you feel a little disappointed, ' he said. "But it's clear that Griezmann was the best last season".

Musk says Tesla has gone from "production hell" to "delivery logistics hell"
The tech entrepreneur called Mr Unsworth a "pedo" after he criticised Mr Musk in a television interview. The device wasn't used, and Unsworth called it a " PR stunt ".


"I never want to say never, but it's very hard to have your kid in the dressing room, both for him and for the relationship". "I never saw him at Barcelona. I always felt like he would stay".

The Argentinian manager has also stated that he hopes Jan Oblak signs a new contract extension with the club, and also that the club are working in that direction.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone could well be tasked with attempting to stop the pair at some point this season, but when asked which he would prefer to have on his side, his response was typical.

The 48-year-old also discussed who he thinks is the world's best player, with his answer being a player than can be found within the ranks of his very own Madrid based side.

Griezmann has won the Europa League and Uefa Super Cup, and finished second in La Liga, with Atletico Madrid.
