Antoine Griezmann, Atletico Madrid’s forward, is famous for getting attention, especially with the topic of his future. This time he announced officially, that he will leave his team this summer, but he was willing to spread the news with another documentary video. FC Barcelona and PSG are interested in signing him, as Catalans want to replace Coutinho and Parisians would like to strengthen their offensive. They only need to pay a buyout clause in the amount of 120 million euros.
Striker became a legend in his club after the transfer from Real Sociedad in 2014. He played only 256 games, but scored 133 goals and provided 50 assists. This way he is at the top of the list of club goalscorers. The time has come for another challenges, because he probably won’t be able to win the title with Atletico. He achieved Spain Super Cup, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup.
The current world champion with France prefers to sign with Barcelona, but he will need to lower his salary expectations from 23 million euros, which he’s earning now, to 17 mln, because this is the sum Catalans can offer.
Another problem could be dressing room’s opinion. His possible teammates don’t approve, that he had decided to stay in Atletico a year ago. Anyway, we’ll learn soon which team he’s going to join in the nearest future.
