According to CaughtOffside, Simeone is still City’s top priority for the summer as they consider the position of current boss Manuel Pellegrini.
It has not been a great season at the Etihad Stadium, with last season’s Premier League and Capital One Cup winners likely to end trophyless this time around.
Simeone has worked wonders with Atletico and City hope they can lure him away despite the chance that he might commit his future at the Vicente Calderon.
