Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone seemed to open the door for Napoli and Roma target Sime Vrsaljko to leave in January.
The former Sassuolo man has barely featured this season and is wanted by the two Serie A giants.
“He is a player of this club and as long as he stays with us, he will considered as such,” said Simeone in a Press conference.
“We talked with him this week, but what we said remains private. As a player, he is very important to us: young, physically strong and in good shape, because after the injury, he hasn’t had any more problems.
“Vrsaljko is in the squad for tomorrow, but here at Atleti the team comes before everything else. Always.”
