If anyone who is following Griezmann’s desperation to leave Atletico from last year, you’ll be aware that Griezmann rejected an offer from Barcelona last year and revealed his thought process in a documentary called ‘The Decision’. Last year Atletico also approached FIFA and reported an alleged illegal approach in December 2017. He then signed a 5-year contract to stay in Metropolitan last summer. Now in another video, via Atlético’s official social media channels after meeting with Diego Simeone the team’s manager and the chief executive, Miguel Ángel he’s confirmed that he’ll be leaving Atletico.
Barcelona will have to pay the buyout clause in Griezmann’s contract of 120m euros and if this move is confirmed it will place huge doubt over the future of Philippe Coutinho at the Nou Camp. Do you think Barcelona are playing right on the money?
