Cagliari striker Giovanni Simeone: I want Atletico Madrid move - even if Dad's not there

Cagliari striker Giovanni Simeone admits he dreams of playing for Atletico Madrid.

Simeone is the son of Atletico coach Diego Simeone and the brother of Atleti youth teamer Giuliano.

He told ESPN Redes: "More than anything because it is a club where I always wanted to go as a boy as Atlético is. It is inevitable that I want to go.

"There is my old man, but if he wasn't there I would also like to go to Atlético, because it is really what I want, what I would like."

Argentina international Simone, 25, is on-loan at Cagliari this season from Fiorentina.
