Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid is currently struggling financially due to their expensive wage budget issues. While the Argentine manager Diego Simeone has efficiently handled the team management role for a decade, Atletico Madrid are now among the regular Spanish teams to participate in the UEFA Champions League tournaments. However, the club is still facing financial challenges because of their massive salary bills. Atletico Madrid's top-salaried players According to the recent report of Marca, Atletico Madrid are currently spending more than 200m euros on salaries. Luis Suarez’s exit is big news in their salary structures as the Uruguayan was their second-highest paid salaried player last season. But, the club is still spending hugely on Jan Oblak and Koke.

While Griezmann was their most salaried player last season despite taking a massive pay cut, his club future is still waiting. There were some recent rumours that Atletico Madrid want him for another season. However, the present condition clearly tells that it will be more difficult due to the massive wages issue in the club. Griezmann at Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid: Diego Simeone is the highest-paid football manager in the world Diego Simeone (Image Credit: Twitter) Now we are moving to their long-term manager Diego Simeone. Simeone is currently the highest-paid football manager in the world, thanks to a series of renewals due to his consistent successes as a manager. As an Atletico Madrid manager for more than a decade, he has won eight trophies, including two La Liga titles and two UEFA Europa Leagues. Moreover, the manager guided the Spanish club to two UEFA Champions League finals but unfortunately suffered defeats in both those finals. Currently, the club has just more than 20 contracted players in the first team.
