Diego Simeone 'will have to renegotiate Atletico Madrid contract if they miss out on Champions League' and club legend could LEAVE this summer if no agreement is reached
- Atletico Madrid have been on a poor run of form and face Real Madrid next
- Real Betis are chasing and missing Champions League next year is a possibility
- Reports in Spain claim Diego Simeone would renegotiate contract if it happens
- Argentine is a club legend but there is a possibility he could leave in the summer
The revelation suggests he will no longer be football’s best paid coach if they slip into the Europa League and that he could even part company with the club for free at the end of the season if no new agreement is reached.
Atletico remain favourites to make the cut but a run of one win in their last four league games has made for a more nervous finish to the season than they were anticipating.
Diego Simeone could leave Atletico Madrid this summer and would have to renegotiate his contract if they fail to qualify for the Champions League
Atletico are on a poor run of form and lost against Athletic Bilbao at the weekend
There is a three point gap between themselves in fourth and fifth place Betis. If they lose to Real Madrid at the weekend and Betis win at home to Barcelona they will be on the same number of points with three games left.
They do have head-to-head advantage over them so would finish above them if they tie on points.
Simeone has been a source of massive income for Atletico Madrid since he took over a decade ago.
With two Champions League final appearances, two more semi-finals, two Europa League finals and two European Super Cups he has brought in well in excess of 300 million euros in prize-money.

Just for qualifying for the Champions League clubs earn around 15m euros. With just getting out of the group bringing in a further 9.6m.
