According to Fox Sports Argentina, the 55-year-old Martino has already spoken twice with Argentina about returning to the helm for La Albiceleste.

Atlanta is one of the favorites to triumph in Major League Soccer this season, still alive for both the Supporters’ Shield and the MLS Cup. Martino has lost just 14 of 61 league matches as United boss.

The situation in Argentina has been a mess, with Lionel Messi barely dragging the side out of the World Cup group stage.

Martino managed Messi at Barcelona and Argentina, where he managed La Albiceleste to a pair of Copa America finals.
