According to AS, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo said he believes Antoine Griezmann wants to stay at the club beyond the summer.
Griezmann has been heavily linked with a summer move to Barcelona, with reports going as far as to suggest the deal had been already arranged and the Frenchman was browsing for a house in the Catalan city.
But the Atletico president has moved to quash such rumors.
Cerezo says Griezmann hasn’t informed him of his potential desire for a move away from the club and that any such statement from the player would come as a big surprise to him. He also pointed out that Griezmann is under contract with Atletico, that the contract is long-term and that he cannot sign for any other club without their permission, even if he did want the move.
This story is likely to twist and turn quite a few times more before the summer transfer window ends.
