“Every decision is personal and I respect them,” Simeone said after the game.

“Lucas is a young lad with a good present and an even better future. I hope he stays with us. The team love him and need him.

“We love Lucas and watched him grow, but we’ll let him decide what he thinks is best for him.

“I’ll support him with whichever decision he takes and I’ll respect it because I love him so much.”
