It is now confirmed. Antoine Griezmann will not be Atletico Madrid’s player next season. The player himself confirmed that on social media on Tuesday night.
“After talking with Cholo [Diego Simeone], Miguel Angel and the people from the offices, I wanted to talk to the fans who have given me a lot of love,” Griezmann said. “I have decided to leave, see other things, have other challenges and with great difficulty, this is what I feel and I need.
“It’s been five great years where I’ve won my first important trophies with a club. It’s been a very important stage. I have enjoyed a lot, I have left everything in the field, I have tried to behave well, I have tried to give joy to the people who have come to the Metropolitano and also away from home, and I only have gratitude for all of you.”
The players’ release clause sits at 125 million euros and Barcelona are the favourites to sign the Frenchman.
