Diego Simeone has said he would like to return to Italy one day and the belief is that he will return to Inter Milan where he played from 1997 until 1999.

He spent some time in Milan recently with his family during the international break and was asked about returning to manage the Serie A side and responded with a smile and said, "Inter? You never know..."

His good friend Javier Zanetti is the Director of Football at the club and he intends on working with Simeone in order to convince him to come back.

The club recently sacked Frank de Boer and hired Stefano Pioli but it is believed that Simeone is the real man they want in charge.
