The Argentine coach hoped to lure his compatriot to the capital with the promise of a reunion with Suarez and a team capable of winning trophies.
Diego Simeone says he asked Luis Suarez to contact his former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi to find out if the attacker was open to joining Atletico Madrid.
Messi left Barcelona in the summer transfer window after his contract expired, a year after Suarez made the switch from Camp Nou to the capital.
Before the Argentina international's move to Paris Saint-Germain was confirmed, Simeone asked his star forward to find out if he fancied joining the Spanish champions.
