Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has no problem with Alessio Cerci being linked with the likes of Manchester United.
The Italian winger has failed to make much of an impact at the Spanish Champions since his move, and there has been talk that he could leave in the Winter window.
And amid all the talk of a possible switch to Old Trafford, Simeone has confirmed Louis Van Gaal’s interest.
As quoted on the ESPN website, he said: “I read in the newspapers that Manchester United, Inter and Arsenal want Cerci and I haven’t given him the chance to play, so evidently we are a great team.
“We managed to sell Demichelis, even though he hadn’t played a game for us, and Cerci, who hasn’t played much either, is being tracked by three extraordinary teams.
“Seeing the newspapers makes me think we are a great side. I was not hurt [by Cerci’s complaints] because it’s not a thought towards the Coach, but rather an expression. “
