Cerezo gave an interview to (Tele Madrid) channel, in which he said:

“I don’t know what happened. Coaches have times when they have to give their opinion. If it seemed to Simeone that Messi could come to Atletico Madrid, he did well in trying. For me it’s great to see good players in the team shirt, but it was very difficult in this matter, as Simeone explained.

Simeone revealed in an interview published this week by the Argentine (Ole) newspaper:

He had consulted with Suarez about the possibility of signing Lionel Messi after his departure from Barcelona was announced last August.

He added that Paris Saint-Germain has “great economic power” and indicated that Spanish clubs are subject to “very strong and difficult control” that allows Spanish football to be “in the economic situation in which you live.”

Cerezo emphasized:

The signing of Luis Suarez last year and the return of Frenchman Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid, both from Barcelona, ​​were good deals “for Barcelona, ​​for Atletico, for both players”.

And talking about the upcoming Atletico Madrid and Liverpool match in the third round of the Champions League group stage, which will be held next Tuesday.
