Griezmann confirms Atletico Madrid exit

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.
